Fulham striker Hugo Rodallega hopes for an extended first team run after featuring in defeat to Reading.

Rodallega is hopeful that his performance will give him a chance to shine for the rest of the campaign.

"I want to play in this team always," he told fulhamfc.com. "I haven't played a lot this season, which is the gaffer's decision, but I respect his decision and am ready to give my all. The second half I was unlucky as I hit the crossbar - I felt so bad when it hit the bar, as we were at 3-2 and could have equalised, but these things happen.

"I couldn't quite score a goal, but I was happy with my overall performance and hopefully I'll get another chance next week."
