Coleman Quietly Confident

Last updated : 29 January 2005 By Sam
Fulham were made to work hard against a Derby side obviously bouyed by a recent run of good results in the Coca Cola Championship.

"We needed a little bit more in the last third because we were disappointing in that area.

"Our last pass was not there and our movement is usually better than that. It was never going to be an easy tie against a good Derby County team who are playing good football and who are well-orgainised and playing with a lot of confidence.

"I would have taken a draw before the game and we are quite happy to go back to Craven Cottage.

"I'm quietly confident that we can finish it off though it won't be easy."
