Fulham's Gera looking to Hughes to play him in a wider role

Fulham forward Zoltan Gera is hoping boss Mark Hughes will use him as wide player rather than in an advanced position. Gera does not believe his style of play is suited to a striker role which Hughes demands, whereas he does enjoy operating out wide.

"I really enjoy training but (Hughes') tactics differ from Roy Hodgson's," he told skysports.com. "Hughes wants a strong striker who can run into the space and hold the ball, but I'm not that kind of player.

"My best chance to play is on either wing where I also like playing. In 4-4-2 our wingers are not very close to the touchline. They can play quite free football. They can run into the centre part of the pitch. This fits my style.

"I'm happy to see that I may have the possibility to play as a winger. I'm patient and know that if I go on like this then I'll be a regular member of the starting line-up."
