Hodgson defends team selection

BY foxsports • March 31, 2010

Hodgson, mindful of his side's upcoming Europa League quarter-final against German champions Wolfsburg on Thursday night, rested Bobby Zamora, Danny Murphy, Aaron Hughes, Dickson Etuhu and Damien Duff at the KC Stadium. West Ham are reported to be considering making a complaint after Hull's 2-0 win moved them to within goal difference of the struggling Hammers - although no confirmation has come from the east London club. But Hodgson said: "We have no case to answer, I am perfectly happy with the team selection." Zamora will be assessed ahead of kick-off at Craven Cottage after missing training on Wednesday with a cold but he, Murphy, Hughes, Etuhu and Duff are all expected to return to the starting line-up.
