Hughes Hails Fulham

Last updated : 28 April 2011

Clint Dempsey scored twice either side of half-time to cap a majestic performance, before Brede Hangeland headed home the Cottagers' third.

"I am very happy with that," said former Wales manager Hughes. "I thought we were excellent."

He added: "It was a different test for us tonight in regards to the approach and what we had to face.

"At the weekend against Wolves, I thought we were excellent in terms of getting the ball down and playing, passing and probing.

"We obviously had to face up the physical questions that Bolton ask of you.

"I know people say Bolton have changed their approach somewhat under Owen Coyle's leadership and they have to a certain extent but they still play to their strengths as well.

"You know you are going to have to deal with balls into your box and Kevin Davies, who is very adept at flicking things on.

"After an initial four of five minutes at the start of the first half, I think we dealt with it really, really well.

"I thought some of the play we produced was excellent and thankfully we added goals to the quality of our play. It is very satisfying for everybody."
