Defender Brede Hangeland believes Fulham's away form has improved due to the more adventurous tactics manager Mark Hughes has brought to the club.

The Cottagers flourished under former manager Roy Hodgson and reached the Europa League Final last season.

However, their Premier League away form was a constant source of bemusement among supporters who witnessed their side win just one of 19 games on the road last term.

Under Hughes they have drawn all four of their league games away from Craven Cottage this season and Hangeland believes he knows the reason why.

He told the club's official website:"We're playing slightly different this year. We're not conceding ground like we did last year and we're trying to press a bit higher up the pitch and get in the opponent's face a little bit more.

"It's given us some good performances away from home and some decent results.

"Now we're hoping for that first away win of the season and it would be nice to get it this weekend."

Speaking about Saturday's trip to an in-form West Bromwich Albion, he added:"They've had some very strong results and like any game in the Premier League these days it's going to be tough for us.

"I'm sure it's going to be a tough game but we'll be up for it."
