Hughes Faith In Newcomers
Updated Monday, 27th September 2010
Fulham defender Aaron Hughes believes their summer signings can propel the club to new heights.
The Cottagers are still unbeaten in the Barclays Premier League this season, with one victory and five draws putting Mark Hughes' men in seventh place in the fledgling table.
Mexico full-back Carlos Salcido impressed on his home debut in the goalless draw against Everton on Saturday, while Hughes also singled out striker Moussa Dembele and defender Rafik Halliche as players who can make a big impact.
"Carlos is new to the side and has slotted in really well, which shows the quality of the player," he told the club's official website.
"The games he's played in have been tough games - Blackburn away and Stoke away.
"He looks another really good buy for us, as does Rafik, who played a few minutes (in the Carling Cup) on Tuesday night and looks really good in training. Obviously Moussa's injured at the moment but everyone's seen what he's produced over the last few weeks."
