Fulham striker Mladen Petric is determined to bounce back from defeat to Sunderland when they travel to Stoke on Saturday.

The Whites are generally poor on their travels and will be missing Brede Hangeland through suspension.

“Of course it will be a difficult game when we go to Stoke at the weekend,” Petric said. “It will be especially difficult because Brede is suspended and it is the kind of game you need your big centre-back because he’s a tall player and he’s very strong with his head.

“But Philippe [Senderos] played his first game of the season on Sunday and I think he did well. He’s good in the air as well, so I think we have no reason to be scared going into the match. We have a lot of quality in the Team to play a good game there.”
