'Very interesting' - Fulham ace opens up on what it will take to stop Leeds & promotion rivals

Fulham forward Aboubakar Kamara has commented on the Championship run-in, including the need to beat Leeds United in the upcoming clash at Elland Road.

The French attacker admitted that the Cottagers will need to take points off their promotion rivals such as West Brom, Bristol City and Nottingham Forest alongside the Whites.

Leeds did lose against Fulham back in December, but it was in controversial circumstances as it finished 2-1 at Craven Cottage.

Speaking to Fulham’s official website on Thursday, Kamara admitted that every game will be a cup final for the Londoners.

“We know we need to approach each game with confidence,” he said.

“Every game is a cup final because we play West Brom, Leeds, Brentford and Nottingham Forest. We need to win to stop them.

“We play them all so it’s in our hands but they will think the same thing, so there’s something in it for everyone which makes it very interesting.”

Leeds are currently the in-form side in the Championship having won their past four games and managing to keep clean-sheets.

Prediction expert Nate Silver has revealed that the Whites currently stand a 97% chance of earning promotion the Premier League, compared to Fulham who only have a 28% of doing the same.

On that basis, Fulham desperately will need to collect all three points when they travel to Elland Road in two weeks time – a defeat could all but end their hopes of automatic promotion.
