Hughes assures Fulham fans all is not lost

Aaron Hughes has told Fulham fans all is not lost in their battle against relegation.

The defender told fulhamfc.com: "We've got quite a few games coming up with teams around us who are in a similar position to ourselves. It's important we take maximum points from those games otherwise it's going to be extremely difficult. Nothing is lost yet and there are a lot of points to play for and positives to work on. There's enough time and points left to see us back to safety.

"You need to get a run together and the teams around mid-table and above have had those runs whether it's been at the start of the season or whenever. We haven't had that run and hopefully it will come now. We don't care where the wins come, we just want as many points as we can get. It's going to be a fight and a battle in every game we play - it's our Premier League status we're fighting for and we don't take that lightly.

"We're going to Blackburn to get maximum points. Blackburn do what they want to do very well - they're strong and physical but they've also got players in the side with ability. They're a good side and every match will be a tough game from now on because so much is at stake.

"We're lucky that we've got the opportunity to play in one of the best leagues in the world. It's a massive league to play in and the quality of players you come up against week in, week out - it's great. We know the enormity of the situation and what it is to call ourselves Premier League players and be involved in this league - no one takes that lightly. We're all fighting very hard and we want to be playing against the likes of Manchester United in the Premier League next season."
