Fulham midfielder Dickson Etuhu has praised manager Mark Hughes for making the team more exciting since his arrival.
The Welshman took over from Roy Hodgson in the summer following the former coach's move to Liverpool and has installed his own methods into training.
Etuhu scored a rare goal for the Cottagers in their 2-2 draw with Blackpool to equalise late on with a burst from midfield and a cool finish past Matthew Gilks.
Hughes has a hard act to follow after Hodgson's stunning work with the West London side last season, guiding them to the Europa League final, but Etuhu was confident the new boss could do just as well.
"We've got a great manager with his own ideas. Training is exciting and fast, we're learning a lot everyday and looking forward to it," he said.
"Obviously Roy Hodgson did well over the last year but he's gone to Liverpool now.
"The new manager has come in with his own methods which are different from Roy Hodgson's, so we have to click together and work at it.
"Its exciting for the whole place and all the players are excited about it. You can see that drive, that extra pace, we score more goals now and hopefully we'll keep going."
