Fulham defender Chris Baird is looking forward to next Saturday's Premier League game against Derby - saying the minimum required is 'three points and nothing less'.

The 20th October clash at Craven Cottage takes on extra significance because Fulham dropped into the Premier League's relegation zone following last Sunday's 2-0 home reverse against Portsmouth.

Baird insists he is not worried about Fulham's current league predicament - but they do need to pick up three points against rock bottom Derby.

Disappointing

He told the club's official website: "After going to Stamford Bridge, not conceding and getting a point it was especially disappointing to lose two goals in the manner we did against Portsmouth.

"We have to put that right and take three points against Derby.

"It's not nice to be in the bottom three but I'm not worried yet.

"It's the early part of the season and I think our performances deserve more points than what we are on at the minute.

"We've got to keep plugging away and putting in good performances and we'll pick up the points to push us up the table."
