Cottagers boss delighted by comfortable win

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson was delighted with the way his side capped a busy week by claiming a comfortable 3-0 victory over Burnley. The Cottagers made it seven points from nine and climbed to ninth in the Premier League table courtesy of strikes from Danny Murphy, David Elm and Bobby Zamora. The hosts were rarely troubled by the Clarets and Hodgson felt they had fully deserved their win. He said: "It's been a very good week and it was nice to crown it in a positive way. "I thought we worked well from the first to the last minute and we were good value for our victory. "With this game coming after a few where we were forced to ride our luck from time to time, it was nice to win in a very convincing manner." Zamora and Simon Davies both made their returns to the side after illness and injury respectively, and Hodgson was full of praise for their contributions. "When you have quality players like those two, you miss them when they are not playing. "Getting Simon and Bobby back was really important and both of them did very well to last as long as they did. "It was nice to be able to substitute them fairly early on as well and not push them to the limit."
