Hugo Rodallega is delighted to be off the mark for Fulham.

The 27-year-old opened his account against his former club as Fulham secured an impressive 2-1 defeat of Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium, with the striker a constant threat throughout.

“I was at Wigan for a long time, so of course, they are a club close to my heart,” Rodallega told fulhamfc.com. “It was strange going back there, and even stranger scoring against them. But I’m a Fulham player now, and it meant a lot to get my first goal. You never forget your first goal for a club.

“It was an important win for us, we’re showing a lot of quality at the moment which is good. We’ve started the season well and, as a result, we’re in a good position in the league. But as we know there’s a lot of football to be played.”
