Hodgson to field strong line-up

03 November 2010 12:30
Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has pledged to field a strong team in their Europa League clash at home to Napoli as he seeks to take a major step towards qualification for the knockout stages. The 63-year-old believes four points from their remaining three games - two of which are at home - will be enough for his Group K leaders. And even with a huge match against Chelsea looming on Sunday Hodgson, in contrast to their away European fixtures, is prepared to field an experienced side. "I think if we can get four more points we'll be pretty much secure for a place in the next round as I can see the other games being tight," he said. "We got one of the tougher groups with Napoli, Steaua and Utrecht and on paper it looked even, but we've done what we've needed to do. "We'll have a strong team out on Thursday, we won't rest too many."
