Fulham - Hodgson Praises Defensive Trio!

Fulham - Hodgson Praises Defensive Trio!

At times, up at the Riverside Stadium, there`s no doubting we rode our luck.

It seemed that it was only a matter of time before Middlesbrough got the breakthrough they deserved.

But, as has often been the case this season, the defence held firm with Mark Schwarzer, Brede Hangeland and Aaron Hughes, all playing starring roles.

After the game, in his media address, Roy Hodgson was quick to praise all three, remarking,

"Mark`s save was a match defining moment but that is the kind of thing I`ve come to expect from him. Ever since joining us last summer he has produced cool and composed performances."

"Hughes and Hangeland have also been vitally important. They have hardly put a foot wrong all season."

"I`ve got players all through the side who work extremely hard in every game, but Schwarzer, Hughes and Hangeland have just been so very consistent for us all season."


Glad to see praise going where praise is quite rightly due!

He took his time to pick those 3 out. They have been fantastic, and hopefully the comments will just spur them on more!
