Hodgson relieved after draw

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson admitted that his side had been fortunate to secure a 1-1 FA Cup fifth round draw at Swansea City. The Cottagers were under the cosh for much of the game at the Liberty Stadium, but escaped to earn a second crack at the Championship side. Hodgson commented: "It was a jaded performance from our side and a very good one from them. "We had a lot of players away on international duty this week and that showed a little bit, but all credit to Swansea, they played very well. "I am pleased with my team in the sense that when things are not going your way, it is very important that you rely on your defensive organisation to keep the opposition at bay and we did that reasonably well. "I can only hope that in the replay we can show a bit more of the form we have had this season, because we were not at our best. "I'm not angry though because we were up against a team that has done extremely well."
