Mark Schwarzer admits results in the Premier League have dipped in the midst of Fulham's Europa League run.

Shot-stopper targets three points against Latics

Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer admits results in the Premier League have dipped in the midst of their Europa League run. The Cottagers famously dumped Italian giants Juventus out of Europe last month and go into next week's quarter-final second leg against Wolfsburg 2-1 up after the first game at home. But Roy Hodgson's men have not won in their last four league outings and although Schwarzer says the performances have been good, he concedes the results have not followed. "I don't think our performances have dropped since Juventus," said the 37-year-old, who reached the Uefa Cup final with Middlesbrough in 2006. "The results have dropped and we have had drops in concentration in parts of games but generally overall we are pleased with how we have been playing. "We played well against the German champions on Thursday but we'll take each round as it comes now and for us and Sunday is the priority. "We can't think about the second leg until we have Wigan out of the way." Fulham take on the Latics on Sunday at Craven Cottage and they might have one eye on the game with Wolfsburg in Germany on Thursday. Wigan themselves are still not completely out of the woods and will be hoping for a win on the banks of The Thames to give them breathing space above the relegation zone. "Wigan will be very tough for us," Schwarzer added. "They're in the mix down there so they need the points to get over that infamous 40-point mark and we still need a couple of points to do that as well so it's a big game for us."
