Jermaine Jenas believes a big test is on the cards when we travel to Fulham on Tuesday night, while anticipating a high quality encounter.

Fulham have not suffered a home reverse in the league since coming up against Manchester United at Craven Cottage at the beginning of October. The flip side is that Chris Coleman's side have yet to win on their Premiership travels.

JJ is well aware of the threat posed at a venue where we suffered a 2-0 defeat on our last visit.

"They are a very good side and I think they have shown that throughout the season at home," reasoned the midfielder. "They have got some good results, so it is going to be tough and they are a good footballing side who played well against us at White Hart Lane this season.

"We'll be going there confident because we have been playing well and it should be a good game."

It is the fact that Fulham are generally acknowledged to be a 'good footballing side' which leads JJ to suspect it will be a top contest between teams who like to get the ball down and play.

"We're all footballers who love getting on the ball and knocking it around," he added. "Many teams in this league aren't prepared to let you do that, if they can get around you and hustle you out of your game then that is what they are going to do.

"I think Fulham are a side who like to pass it around and we are also one of those teams. It should make it a very interesting battle."
