Fulham boss Kit Symons reveals the next Hangeland and Hughes - or so he hopes

Fulham fans might have wondered as the Charlton equaliser hit the back of the net - but Kit Symons reckons his new central defensive partnership could be one of the club's best ever.

Tim Ream and Richard Stearman were then bisected by Tony Watt running through at the death, with only a last-ditch Stearman tackle preventing three points becoming none on Sunday.

The two Addicks goals came from crosses as well for an eventual 2-2.

But Symons, former Whites stalwart at the back himself, insists there is reason to believe his £4million pair will be as good as Brede Hangeland and Aaron Hughes - a terrific partnership that took the Whites to a Europa League Cup final in 2010.

"It's very early days for the boys, but I would like to think with time they could be up with Hughes and Hangeland," Symons said. "Knowing they would compliment each other, they were signed as a pair.

"Once they've got a better understanding, they will help the rest of the back four get a better understanding - and then the rest of the team as well."
