Stockdale's behind Hughes

04 January 2011 08:30
Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale has given his support to Cottagers boss Mark Hughes. Hughes will be in the home dugout against West Brom for the first time since Boxing Day - when some of the Cottagers' fans called for his head after the 3-1 home defeat to West Ham. Fulham delivered the perfect response to that shattering setback by recording a surprise win at Stoke two days later, which they followed with another encouraging - if pointless - performance at Tottenham on Saturday. Tuesday night's game will see Hughes hand Stockdale his first appearance since August, with Mark Schwarzer having left for Australia's Asian Cup campaign. Stockdale said: "Everyone outside the club was asking questions at one point but, as you saw against Stoke and Tottenham, everyone here is behind the manager. "The lads put in two good performances last week and I think we deserved at least a point out of the game on Saturday against a top-four side."
