Hodgson warns Fulham players over drop prospects

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has warned his players that the clock is ticking on their survival hopes after another defeat on Saturday.

The ailing Cottagers went down 3-0 at home to Arsenal and afterwards the newly-installed manager called for an immediate improvement in results if they are to preserve their top-flight status.

Hodgson has lost three and drawn two of the five games he has been in the Craven Cottage hot-seat.

"We have to get to winning matches because the later we leave it, the harder it will become," he said.

"People are realistic but I have to say I don't think the players have given up and if we bring in some new faces, that will improve the spirit even more.

"As far as I'm concerned, it's a work in progress and we're up for that work. We know where we have to improve."
