Hodgson happy with Fulham players despite Cup exit

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson insists he was happy with his players after FA Cup elimination by Bristol Rovers last night.

Hodgson said: "Jimmy Bullard was outstanding, considering he has not played for 16 months. I thought I might have to take him off but I didn't have to.

"In terms of out determination and aggression, we matched Rovers. We have no reason to be ashamed of this.

"Of course, it is a blow to lose. But this is not relevant in terms of the Premier League.

"Losing on penalties always leaves a bad taste in the mouth but I thought we were good value for 0-0 after 120 minutes."
