Fulham boss Hughes hopes Zamora can finish season in scoring form

Fulham boss Mark Hughes is hoping Bobby Zamora can sign off this season with a flourish.

Zamora was replaced by Eidur Gudjohnsen in the second half at Birmingham City on Sunday and whilst Hughes highlighted the great impact the striker has made in recent months, Fulham's manager believes Zamora will not hit his peak performance until next season.

He told "He [Zamora] was struggling before the game against Birmingham and obviously didn't see the match out, but we knew he would have setbacks until next season, when he will be fully flying again.

"He showed in the time he was on the pitch on Sunday he gives us a presence and a focal point for our play - he was a real threat against Birmingham.

"We need to see how he is for next week but hopefully we can settle him down and he'll be okay to play against Arsenal."
