MARK Hughes has hailed former Fulham boss Roy Hodgson ahead of Saturday's visit to Liverpool .
The Whites face their old manager for the first time since he quit Craven Cottage for Anfield in the summer.
But Hughes believes Hodgson, who led the Cottagers to the Europa League final last season, should get a good reception from the Fulham faithful.
He said: "I've got a really good group of players who are really receptive. They are very professional in how they conduct and apply themselves.
"They enjoyed success over the past two years.
"Everyone appreciates what Roy did in his time here, but things have moved on.
"He likes his teams to be well organised, and has done similar work at Liverpool to here.
"We're aware what Roy what will try and get from his team and how he will set them up."
