'If It's Football, It's Vital'

In Form Fulham Will Be Hard To Beat

Stiliyan Petrov has said that Villa will need to fight and be at their best in order to beat Fulham this weekend.

Fulham's home form and record is one we crave to be honest, they have won 10 of their 17 games and only lost 4 in the process but despite this Petrov told the official site we would continue in our attacking vain.

'They have a very good manager who knows what he wants and they're a very organised side. They are a side who know how to play.

'But on the other hand we'll go there and try to win. I hope that we can start winning now and try to play much better.'

Petrov realises, as he says, that we need to start winning games again and picking up the points otherwise our battle for 5th place will soon go the way of our battle for 4th and we'll end up 6th.

'The last three games will be vital because Everton are right behind us.

'We know they will be there right until the last game of the season because they want to finish fifth as well so we'll fight until then.'

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what the difference to us is between finishing 5th and 6th. I'm referring to prize money / Europa etc rather than the obvious prestige of finishing 1 behind the top 4 etc. But we now at best can finish 5th and at worst 6th - so what are the scenarios in each case?
