Fulham manager Roy Hodgson proud of point at Anfield

Cottagers boss delighted with draw at Liverpool
Fulham manager Roy Hodgson was left delighted by the hard-earned point his team were able to secure in today's 0-0 Premier League draw at Liverpool

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, the Cottagers' boss also stated that he was very pleased with the level of performance from his players.

"I’m certainly delighted with a point and I’m pleased with the performance because although it fell short of what we’re capable of actually doing," he explained.

"Given that we’ve had the home matches against Wolfsburg and Wigan and away matches at Wolfsburg and now Liverpool in the space of eight or nine days, it’s going to take its toll especially when you lose a couple of players of the quality of [Zoltan] Gera and [Simonz] Davies."

Hodgson also stated that he was delighted with both the spirit of his team and also their tactical discipline throughout the match

"I was very pleased with the way we stood up and were counted.  We were under a lot of pressure for long periods of the game but we managed to keep the shots coming from long distances and preventing the clear cut goal chances," he added.

"The team now has developed a good understanding tactically of what they need to do to be a good team defensively.  You’re certainly tested to the limit when you play against a team like Liverpool. 

"They’ve got so much skill they can ask questions of you.  We’ve got to be proud of getting a 0-0 here today.  There aren’t many teams that come to Anfield and get a result so we’ve got to be very happy with it."

The Fulham manager also went on to state that he was never overly worried that Liverpool were going to score, despite their high shot count, claiming: "Apart from the chance Daniel Agger had at the end I wasn’t that concerned that often that they were going to score."

Having taken off Bobby Zamora after just over an hour, Hodgson allayed any fears that the England hopeful might have sustained any notable injury.

"Bobby signalled his calf was tightening up so we took his straight off but come Wednesday or Thursday I’m sure he’ll be fit again," said Hodgson. 

"It was a precautionary measure rather than an injury."
