Fulham display has Mark Hughes purring


Fulham manager Mark Hughes hailed his side's performance in Saturday's 2-0 Premier League victory over Wigan Athletic.

The Cottagers dominated from start to finish and a brace from American international Clint Dempsey was enough to seal all three points in the capital.

Hughes was particularly delighted with the attacking promise his team showed as they grabbed only their second three-point haul of the campaign.

"I'm delighted. We've played well this season and, today, I thought certainly in the first half, it was the best we've produced all year," he said.

"That's saying something because we've played well this year so I was delighted with going in 2-0 to the good and we were good value for that in fairness.

"In the second half Wigan tried to ask more questions of us but in fairness we were quite comfortable and Mark Schwarzer has had very little to do today.

"So, I just thought our intensity to outplay and our real intention and the way we took the initiative in the game was there for everybody to see and we fully deserved the win today.

"We have great movement, we've got a lot of rotation in forward areas.

"What we wanted to do today was to play in the opposition half. Sometimes we've been guilty of conceding a little bit of ground and having too much to do going forward but today we played the vast majority of the game in Wigan's half and they found it very difficult."
