"I think goalkeepers are always going to be in that situation, forwards are to a similar extent, when they have not scored for a while. A goalkeeper who lets a goal in that perhaps should have been saved are in the firing line when it comes to criticism.
"It's easy to criticise them for what is seen as a mistake rather than maybe a midfield player whose poor play created the chance for the opposition.
"I am sure Joe is not happy to have let in goals he feels he could have saved. I have every confidence and faith in him he will put this behind him. It will take a lot more than a bad game for any player before I start suggesting he should be replaced."
Hodgson, added: "As far as I'm concerned Joe Hart is my number one, he has never let me down.''
