Hodgson pleased with a point

20 Oct 2008 - 14:04:20

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson felt that his side deserved a point from their goalless draw with Sunderland, even though the Black Cats struck the woodwork on several occasions.

Kieran Richardson had one free-kick ruled out for a foul by team-mate Pascal Chimbonda, while another set-piece from the same player hit the woodwork an amazing three times.

Afterwards, Hodgson admitted: "I'm satisfied with a point. We've got another point on the board and our first clean sheet of the season.

"Sunderland will feel more disappointed than us, given the fact they've hit the woodwork a few times and had a goal disallowed.

"I wouldn't have settled for a point before the game, but I think at the end we can't complain about the result, given how close Sunderland went on a number of occasions.

"It was a very lively and exciting Premier League encounter, it was a long way from being a boring 0-0 encounter.

"0-0 games always get the same judgement, ipso facto it has to be two very defensive sides, boring etc. But both teams worked hard, got tired eventually and there were a stack of chances."
