Scott Parker insists Fulham are going to fight and scrap during the visit of an out-of-form Wolves tonight as they battle to avoid relegation.

The Cottagers missed another chance to climb out of the bottom three on Sunday when they slumped to a 3-1 defeat at Aston Villa.

Fulham had been leading 1-0 before conceding three times in 10 minutes late in the game, while 17th-placed Newcastle United picked up a vital point against Tottenham courtesy of a late leveller.

"I'm relishing this challenge, and the challenge that we've got ahead of us is seven games to put ourselves in an unbelievable position," Parker said.

"We're going to fight, scrap and do everything in our power to give ourselves a chance to try and stay in this division this season.

"It would be an incredible achievement for the team and for the football club, and that's my sole aim and I'm looking forward to that.

"I'm relishing that (challenge) and I can't wait for Friday. However that result turns out, we move on to the next and we're still in this, and it'll be a year which will have been a journey and hopefully a story to be told at the end of it."
