Neil Harris: "We've had to work extremely hard in the second half of the season to push into those play-offs, so to come fifth is an achievement, but it's not the success that we want as an end goal. We want our end goal to be a play-off final and victory in that.
"Fulham are a monumental task for us over the two fixtures. They are a very good side and it's going to be a real challenge to play against them. We can't hide the fact it could be an all-Welsh play-off final and if it is, that's great for the nation. But at the moment, the full focus has to be on two tough games against Fulham."
Scott Parker: “I think there’s been pressure on both. Cardiff were in the Premier League with us last year and they were eight points better off than us, to be honest with you. They finished above us in the Premier League, they’re in the same position as I understand.”
“Look, it’s a massive game for both of us, expectations on both clubs are huge, so I think we understand the expectation from the outside and the expectation from the inside is always going to be great. Two games against a very, very good Cardiff team, you have no doubt about that, we understand what we face. We’ll embrace that and we look forward to it.”
