Clint: Cottage key in City clash
Cottagers boss Mark Hughes comes up against his former employers in the live televised encounter on Sky Sports. City triumphed by the Thames on their last trip in March, with goals from Roque Santa Cruz and Carlos Tevez giving them a 2-1 win. Dempsey is expecting another difficult encounter this weekend but is hoping the Fulham faithful can cheer the hosts on to victory. "It will be a tough game, because they have a lot of good players," Dempsey told the Fulham and Hammersmith Chronicle. "But we're at Craven Cottage, and at home you have to make sure that you take advantage of your opportunities. As I always say, the Cottage has always been good to us."
