LODNON – Scott Parker, who is yet to taste a victory in the Premier League this season, is one of the managers leading the sack race after Fulham’s latest defeat this weekend.

Fulham were beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace on Saturday, their fifth defeat from the six opening games of the season.

Parker worked wonders to guide Fulham from the Sky Bet Championship last season, via the play-offs in August, but his run the top-flight has been less than impressive, having taken just a point from the six opening games. His team sits rock bottom of the table.

It is understood the former England will be given a few more games to try and turn things around, but the bookies now have him as a strong favourite to be sacked first.

Parker admits that things are not ideal for him or his at the moment, but vowed to give it his all to fix the Cottagers’ dismal start.

“I can’t control that,” said Parker when asked about whether he feared for his job, following Fulham’s 2-1 defeat this weekend.

“What I can do is what I have normally done throughout my career and life, during these hard times, it is the time to front up and keep working as hard as I can to get the rewards that I deserve.

“It is out of my hands but I will keep working hard.”

“We are a young team, still trying to gel but there were some big positives today and this is when the chips are down you have to face up and keep working hard and I am sure we will come out of the other side,” he added.

“I felt we need to learn from exactly how this game panned out. We had a dominance but at times in the final third lacked a real intensity about us.”
