Cottagers star insists fixture pile-up is a positive

Fulham midfielder Simon Davies has called for his team-mates to enjoy their tough run of games. The Cottagers have a busy 13-day period in which they play Juventus twice, Manchester City and Manchester United before their FA Cup quarter-final replay at Spurs. Davies, however, remembers the London club falling close to relegation two years ago - and insists that the tough fixture list reflects how far Roy Hodgson's side have come. "If someone had offered us that run two years ago, we'd have been jumping at it," said the 30-year-old. "Juventus, Manchester United, Manchester City and a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals - it's great times and it's going to be a time when I'm sure there won't be too much training done. "It will just be game after game and, hopefully, we can keep our run going. "We had a great run in February even though it was a tough month - and it will be another tough month in March. "But there's a lot of experience in the squad and the manager has a lot of experience, so I'm sure he will negotiate the month wisely. "Not too many of us have been this far in the Cup or Europe so it's learning to deal with the big occasion and trying to make the most of it."
