Brede Hangeland says Fulham's Great Escape is down to the coaching of Roy Hodgson.

The defender told "We've seen the team improve, especially over the last month. We've worked on the same stuff on the Training Ground every day and now it's paying off. It was good that it did in the end - we've taken 12 points from the last five games and we needed all of them. It's a fantastic achievement.

"I've been impressed with the Manager. He's always really calm and focused on the things we need to do. He doesn't get carried away if we're leading, or not leading, he gives us the right messages and he's had a big impact on this achievement."
