Hodgson fancies Fulham's FA Cup chances

Published Add your comment

The Barclays Premier League remains Roy Hodgson's priority this season but the Fulham manager believes his side have a decent opportunity in the FA Cup.

The Cottagers defeated Notts County 4-0 on Sunday, with Simon Davies, Bobby Zamora, Damien Duff and Stefano Okaka netting at Craven Cottage to set up a quarter-final tie against Bolton or Tottenham.

"For the teams left, they won't regret three of the traditional top four in the country not being there," Hodgson said. "We think we have as good chance as the others. It's nice to have the lottery ticket because you cannot win the lottery without one."

Notts County caretaker boss Dave Kevan was pleased with his side's performance following a traumatic week when the club was sold for £1 and Sven-Goran Eriksson resigned from his role as director of football.

Kevan is still positive about earning promotion from League Two.

"We're very sorry to see Sven and Tord (Grip) leave, it was a privilege to work with them," Kevan said.

"But there is a lot of football to be played. The aim is to get out of League Two and we can still do it.

"Sven called me and said we could beat them. Hopefully I'll speak to him on the way home."
