Magath experience can save Fulham

The Cottagers manager steered Wolfsburg to safety in the 2006-07 season and believes his experience will help the Londoners as they head into the final stages of the campaign
Fulham manager Felix Magath is confident his experience in relegation battles will help the Londoners beat the drop.

The Craven Cottage outfit remain in the bottom three, one point shy of Sunderland, who also have a game in hand.

3/1 Fulham are 3/1 with Bet365 not to be relegated
Fulham have to play Stoke City at the Britannia on Saturday, before a final-day clash at home to Crystal Palace.

And Magath believes his experience in steering Wolfsburg to safety in the 2006-07 Bundesliga campaign will benefit the Cottagers in the final stages of the season.

"I've been in this situation before," he said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"At Frankfurt (in 1999-2000) we avoided relegation on the last day.

"A year later Frankfurt sacked me in January. In February I took over at Stuttgart and that season Stuttgart stayed up at the expense of Frankfurt. Then at Wolfsburg we almost went down.

"With 20 minutes of the season to go we (Wolfsburg) were down but we survived and two years later we won the championship.

"So I know this situation. I know how it feels. I have told the players. We have to win a game."
