Fulham Boss Expecting Tough Game Against Swans

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson says he is expecting a tough game on Saturday when his side face the Swans in the FA Cup 5th round.

Hodgson has guided the Whites to a healthy mid table place this season in the Premiership, after the club experienced some hard times following Chris Coleman's departure.

The Cottagers boss is fully aware of Swansea City's achievements so far this year and is expecting a tough game at the Liberty Stadium:

'We're playing a very much in-form team on Saturday,'

'They're a team that's done very well and they deservedly won their last away game against a Premier League team, Portsmouth.

'They've done ever so well since then and are just outside the play-off places in the Championship so we know it's going to be a tough game and we have great respect for the opposition.

'We're aware of the task ahead of us and we'll do the only thing in our power to do, which is to work hard and play well.

'We'll give it our best shot as we want to stay in this competition.'


Swansea City will be looking to extend their 14-match unbeaten run for a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Our form at the moment could get us promotion to the Premiership. The game against Fulham (Premiership - mid-table position) will show if we could live in the Premiership.

It's a good test for us again, its all right doing it once against Portsmouth but they were struggling under Adams whereas Fulham are a good and organised team and Hodgson really wants to avoid the embarassment of a cup upset.
