Zubar expecting Fulham test

Roy Hodgson’s men face Hamburg next Thursday in the first leg of

their Europa League semi-final, but Zubar does not expect that to

be on the Fulham players’ minds at the weekend. He told the Express

& Star: “Fulham are playing us at home, where they’re very

strong and as they’re playing well, they will be on the front foot,

“I think to have the confidence they need against Hamburg it’s best

if they go there with a win, so they will be fully committed to

beating Wolves. “The players want to play – Bobby Zamora has a

chance of playing in the World Cup so he needs to play, and Clint

Dempsey is the same. “They might also be thinking of getting to the

final, so that could be good for us, but it would be wrong to say

they’re going to ignore the game against us.”
