Hughes has faith in Fulham newcomers

The Cottagers are still unbeaten in the league this season, with

one victory and five draws putting Mark Hughes’ men in seventh

place in the fledgling table. Mexico full-back Carlos Salcido

impressed on his home debut in the goalless draw against Everton on

Saturday, while Hughes also singled out striker Moussa Dembele and

defender Rafik Halliche as players who can make a big impact.

“Carlos is new to the side and has slotted in really well, which

shows the quality of the player,” he told the club’s official

website. “The games he’s played in have been tough games –

Blackburn away and Stoke away. “He looks another really good buy

for us, as does Rafik, who played a few minutes (in the Carling

Cup) on Tuesday night and looks really good in training. Obviously

Moussa’s injured at the moment but everyone’s seen what he’s

produced over the last few weeks.”
