Cottagers progress delights Jol
Martin Jol is trying to take the pressure of Fulham after claiming he won't be too upset if they fall short of a record points tally.
The west Londoners only need a draw against Jol's former club Tottenham next Sunday to match their previous Premier League best, which came in the 2008/09 campaign under Roy Hodgson. A 2-1 victory over Sunderland at Craven Cottage yesterday kept alive their hopes of surpassing that total, thanks to goals by Clint Dempsey and Mousa Dembele, and in the process put them within touching distance of a record-equalling seventh-place finish. The Dutchman said: "It will be my first game back at White Hart Lane and it will be nice [to get the record]. "There is not a lot of pressure on us and it would be nice to get three points. "I would like Spurs to play in the Champions League, of course, but, on the other hand, if we can get three points that would be good. I am satisfied with what we have achieved and this is probably our best season ever when combining with European football."
