IVAN Klasnic reckons only four wins out of the next four games can salvage Wanderers’ season.

It has been a nightmare few months for Owen Coyle’s side, who currently prop up the Premier League after registering just three wins from their first 15 outings.

The Whites are currently five points from safety – but the Croatia international still believes they can head into 2012 with some forward momentum.

“If we win four games, it will be different,” he said. “I want four wins because after that, everything would change. No one would moan about what has happened up to now. It's something we have to do.”

Klasnic heads to Craven Cottage today – a ground on which he has scored on two of his last three visits. The 31-year-old, who has shrugged off a bruised knee to take his place in the squad, hit the winner in the FA Cup fifth-round tie in February, and has targeted a fast start against the West Londoners.Wanderers have taken the lead in all three of their victories this term, and even if he does not get the opportunity to further his own total of seven strikes, Klasnic thinks it vital for his side to get their noses in front.

“We need to lead,” he said. “If we lead we will win the game. It is an important thing.

“I hope we start better than we did against Aston Villa. I’m trying to do my job. I’m a striker and I score goals, but we need the points. It wouldn’t matter if I had 15 goals, it is the points that are more important right now.”

After spells playing for Werder Bremen in Germany and Nantes in France, where clubs take a winter break, Klasnic says life playing football in England presents its own unique challenges.

“It’s different in Germany and France, but it's a nice time here because more people come to watch you play.

“In Germany this weekend is the last game before two or three weeks off. They enjoy Christmas and New Year, maybe go to a hot place, but I'll be here with the snow, wind and rain,” he told Wanderers Player.
