Fulham boss Hodgson: We'll forever be underdogs

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson says they will forever be considered underdogs.

"I'm afraid that at Fulham we have to live with the fact that teams look at us and expect to get three points," said Hodgson.

"When we go to places there aren't many teams who say, 'Oh my God, it's Fulham, there's nothing in this for us'.

"Everywhere we go this year, whether it be Wolves or Arsenal, West Ham or Liverpool, the team we're playing are going to say, 'Right, this week it's Fulham. This is a team we should be beating, this is a team we're going to win against'.

"We've got to make sure it doesn't happen. It doesn't annoy me, why should it?

"It will be nice one day if people are scared of us and are worried about getting points but we're way off from that.

"We might need to build a 60,000 stadium on the banks of the river first. Trees don't grow to heaven."
