Wembley visit attracts Hodgson

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has one eye on an FA Cup Semi-Final trip to Wembley as the club prepare to battle Spurs in the quarter-finals this weekend.

The Cottagers haven't been to the home of English football for 35 years and Hodgson believes they are overdue a return to the venue, which has since been rebuilt.

"It would be great on a personal note to lead a team out in the semi-final at Wembley but more importantly it would be great for the club." Hodgson said.

"Our players know this is a great opportunity. We worked hard for it, it's been handed to us and now we need to do what's necessary to bring home the bacon."

With a Europa League tie with Juventus next week and a qualification spot for the same tournament still within their grasp, Fulham are fighting on three fronts, something Hodgson insists is only a positive.

"The players aren't satisfied at having got this far," commented Hodgson. "They want to take a step further. The question is if we're good enough."
