Hangeland insists Fulham won't take Kettering lightly

Fulham defender Brede Hangeland says there'll be no relaxing as they prepare to face Kettering Town in the FA Cup.

"It will be a big challenge because it's always difficult to play a lower league team," he told fulhamfc.com. "They'll be fired up I'm sure, but it's up to us to be professional, work hard and try to play our game.

"I think we should expect a few longs balls and physical game from them, that part of the game is not very different, whether you're a Premiership player or a lower-league player. But those factors always make it a tough game and I'm sure that we'll see a lot of that on Saturday.

"We have two difficult away games coming up with Kettering then Sunderland but we all want a bit of revenge for the way we played against West Ham so we're looking forward to both games."
