Fulham manager Roy Hodgson insisted the performance of Jimmy Bullard was an "enormous comfort" to take from his side´s FA Cup exit at lowly Bristol Rovers.

The Coca-Cola League One side overcame the Barclays Premier League strugglers 5-3 on penalties after their third-round replay ended goalless after 120 minutes at the Memorial Stadium.

Hodgson said: "Jimmy Bullard´s performance was an enormous comfort. To play as well as he did after 14 months out in such a difficult game was a big comfort and the determination and aggression we showed to match Bristol Rovers was also a positive."
