'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pre Fulham: The Duke

Following a barnstorming MOTM performance against his former club The Beasts on Monday, Mark Viduka has called for more of the same as the club aims to virtually seal our place in the Premier League for next season. Viduka said:

"For me personally, I have been through some tough times injury-wise, but I really don't want this club to go down and I will do everything I can to keep us up. The crowd (against Boro) was magnificent. They got behind us and they spurred us on and stuck with us when we went behind early on.

I hope I keep my place and can play as well again. Monday night was one of those things where we just needed to get that win under our belt, and I hope we go into Fulham with a little bit less pressure on ourselves. It's another massive game but we're all confident after the Boro win.'

Also on the Viduka radar is Aussie coach Pim Verbeek who is interested in getting the striker back playing for the national side. Verbeek said:

'We've spoken with him. He's focusing entirely on his Newcastle job, he wants to keep them in the Premiership. We won't make any decision, he doesn't want to make any decision. He has to find out if he wants to play another year. That's one of the last decisions we are going to take.

Mark is always on the list. The (Premier) League finishes on the 24th (of May), and it's up to him. If he doesn't want to play next season then it's useless to take him for the June games so let's wait for his decision and let's wait for Newcastle.'
