Hodgson - We Just About Deserved To Win

Last updated : 09 November 2008 By Sam
A 66th minute Danny Murphy penalty goal gave Fulham all three points in a tight affair at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon, a result that saw them move into tenth place in the Premier League table.

"It was tight but I think we deserved it," Hodgson said after the game.

"When they got back to 1-1 I was concerned because we weren't playing very well at the time.

"It's all about confidence. We were playing some good stuff when we were 1-0 ahead but when they scored we didn't look so good.

"We've got to keep our feet on the ground and take it all with a pinch of salt.

"We started the game in the relegation zone and now we're close to a UEFA Cup place.

"There's still 27 games left but I'm confident we can get the points that will see us all right."
