I'll take pens

Thursday 18 April 2002

Louis Saha has accepted the responsibility of taking penalties for The Cottagers and insists the club must "fight for everything" to survive.

Saha, now firmly back in Jean Tigana's starting line-up, has volunteered to take spot-kicks for the rest of the season, despite missing one earlier in the year. And the French striker insists that if Fulham are awarded a penalty at Leeds on Saturday he will be the first to grab the ball.

"I won't hesitate to take the kick if we get one," he said. "I scored a penalty just a month ago and my confidence is high. I would take the responsibility, no problem."

Saha has also urged his team-mates to give everything they have to stay in the Premiership and warned it will not be easy.

"We need to fight for everything now. We cannot let ourselves get down. It is in our own hands and if we win two games then we will survive. We have to make sure it happens."
