thumbnail Hello,

The Cottagers boss admits the current lack of goals is a worry for his side, but thinks that their quality will see them through the barren spell.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has acknowledged today that his side's inability to score goals at the moment is a source of concern for him, but he also feels that the solution to their problem is relatively straightforward.

The west London outfit have had an impressive season so far, in direct contrast to their last campaign, when an incredible revival following Hodgson's appointment as manager saw them just manage to stave off relegation.

The club have spent much of this season in the upper echelons of the Premier League table, but their form has spluttered a little recently, with the Cottagers failing to find the net in their last three games in all competitions.

Hodgson, though, remains confident they will remedy the situation though, especially as the answer, he thinks, is obvious.

"It is a concern, of course," the urbane Englishman told Setanta Sports News earlier.

"The concern is worse if you are not creating chances or your play is not functioning, but the fact we have not taken as many of the chances we have created concerns everybody but you cannot do any more than what we are doing.

"We know the players we have are capable of taking the chances, so it is important we keep playing the football.

"When you don’t score a little anxiety sets in, so the only way to allay the anxiety and fears is to put the ball in the back of the net."
