With Fulham maintaining their undefeated stretch of league games in dramatic style on Tuesday, Tomas Kalas says they’ll go to Newcastle with no fear.
A Tom Cairney stunner at the death against Leeds United meant the Whites have now not lost a Sky Bet Championship match since early February, with a trip to the league leaders up next on Saturday.
“We’re still on the unbeaten run, and we want to keep that going against anyone,” Kalas told fulhamfc.com. “We know that we can play against anyone, it doesn’t matter if it’s Newcastle away or Rotherham away.
“It doesn’t really matter, we have to focus on ourselves and keep going game by game.”
When asked if the late draw was the least his side deserved in midweek, he stated: “We probably deserved more than that, but you don’t always get the results that you deserve.
“We scored two and it finished 1-1. As a central defender, I could see that Neeskens’ shot looked as though it bounced over the line.
“I couldn’t see if it was completely behind the line, but afterwards I saw that it went in and then out again. But what can we do if the linesman couldn’t see it properly.
“It was obviously satisfying at the end with that goal and the character we showed. But from another side it’s disappointing because when you see that we are battering a team that’s chasing promotion and is one of the better sides, then it’s frustrating when we don’t win.”
Leeds must be sick of their former academy player Cairney after he scored a wonder goal against them for the second time this season, and Kalas is hoping for more of the same from the Fulham number 10.
“He did the same thing in Leeds, so he probably prefers playing against them!” he said. “The goal came from a similar position to the one he got up there. So it seems that’s his favourite shot now, and I hope he’s going to do it more often.”
Tickets for Saturday's trip to St James' Park will only be available for fans to buy up until 3pm on Friday.
