We face Roy Hodgson's men in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup kicking-off at 5.20pm at Craven Cottage this evening.
The Cottagers have overcome injuries to sit comfortably in ninth in the Premier League while still challenging in both the FA Cup and Europa League. After beating holders Shakhtar - our conquerers last season - they now have a glamour tie against Italian giants Juventus in the last 32.
"You don't get an easy game at Fulham," said Harry. "It will be difficult. They are a proper team, a well-drilled, well-organised team.
"Roy gets the maximum out of them every week. Bobby Zamora is a terrific player, Danny Murphy as well - Roy's almost resurrected their careers there, got them back to their best. It will be a very difficult game for us.
"Roy's done a great job and he's a terrific guy as well. He's done a fantastic job at Fulham. I remember playing them two years ago when they had to win at Portsmouth to stay up on the last day of the season.
"They did that and then got into Europe last season. To then beat Shakhtar Donetsk over two legs was one of the great performances, to knock the holders out was a fantastic achievement on their part."
