Hodgson's away-day headache

06 October 2008 03:35
Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has admitted that his team's away form is starting to concern him. The Cottagers have lost their first three away games in the Premier League this season, with the 1-0 defeat at West Brom leaving them only one place above the relegation zone. "Our away form does continue to be a concern, but it's not easy to win away from home in this league," said Hodgson. "If we continue to play like we're playing the results will come. "Unfortunately, you've got to go through the disappointing moments until the tide turns for you. "I'd be happy to some extent if I could have criticised the team's performance and found a lot of fault with them. But quite honestly I can't. They did pretty well and, on odd occasions, very well. "We did miss Andy Johnson with so much possession in and around the penalty area, where a player like him would have been useful for us. "So our run of poor form away from home continues, but I'd venture to say our run of bad luck away from home continues as well. "In each of the three away defeats, speaking to the opposing managers after each game, they all believed we were probably good enough to get at least a point."
