Fulham defender Aaron Hughes praises Wigan Athletic's style of football and believes that their game on Saturday will be "a close one".

Fulham defender Aaron Hughes believes that his side's Premier League game against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium on Saturday will be "a close one".

The Cottagers will head into the fixture on the back of a 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion, while the Latics lost 4-0 at Manchester United last weekend.

"We both play good football and obviously Roberto Martinez is big on how he plays - getting the ball down and knocking it around," said Hughes.

"They have a nice style about them and I guess that's what we're known for as well so it should be a good football match.

"I think it will be a close one too and we'll be hoping we can get something from the game."

Fulham are currently ninth in the league table, with six points from four matches.
