Fulham football manager Mark Hughes targets top ten finish

28th April 2011 - Berko Tau

Fulham football manager Mark Hughes has challenged his side to maintain their top-ten Premier League position, following an impressive 3-0 victory over Bolton.

Striker Clint Dempsey scored twice as the dominant Cottagers overcame the visitors comfortably.

A header from Bret Hangeland secured the third goal and maximum points at Craven Cottage, closing the gap between themselves and Bolton to four points.

Speaking after the game, Hughes noted: "I thought we were excellent.

"I think it's only the second time this year that we've been in the top ten and now it is up to us to make sure we stay there until the end of the season."

With just four football games left until the end of the season, this could prove a tall order.

While Fulham are just four points away from securing ninth spot, they are separated from 15th placed Birmingham City by exactly the same margin.
