Hughes on Immense Fulham Victory!

Hughes on Immense Fulham Victory!

500 days between away wins in the Premier League, something I`d hope the team will not contemplate putting us through again.

The win at Stoke, yesterday, has seen some of the pressure on Mark Hughes lifted; we`re now out of the bottom three and ready to move on.

After the game, in his post match press conference, Mark spoke about this perpetual desire to put somebody`s name in the frame for the sack, remarking,

"This week it seems to have been me, next week it will be someone else."

"It`s not nice when it lands on your doorstep so it was nice to win."

"I didn`t feel the need to speak to the board. I have great support from Alistair Mackintosh. And I spoke to the chairman on Monday and he`s very supportive. They understand where we are and what we need."


And as for the result,

"This could be a season-defining win for is. We were immense."

We were good, defensively, but there`s no denying those two early goals from Chris Baird set it all up rather nicely!

Much needed win. I'm looking past our trip to WHL. I want to see how we perform against West Brom at home before I relax. I'm still not too keen on Sparky, right now, but I'm trying to be patient.

Out of relegation for 24 hours. Nice while it lasted. Guess you'll have to pull off another 'immense' victory, Sparky.
