Fulham striker Eidur Gudjohnsen has a point to prove at Fulham, according to his new boss.

Mark Hughes reckons the January loan signing from Stoke is out to show the Potters what they’re missing after just five substitute appearances at the Britannia.

He could make his debut for the Whites at Aston Villa tomorrow after travelling with the squad to Birmingham.

“He wants to get his career back on track,” said the Fulham boss.

“He’s got a point to prove – there’s a lot of people who question where his career is at at the moment and he wants to put that right.

“He’s come to a club that will help him with the way we prepare and play. He’s looking forward to it.”

Hughes admitted last month that he may resist the temptation to bring in another striker after Mousa Dembele and Andy Johnson’s return to action, while Bobby Zamora is back in full training.

But the departures of Eddie Johnson and David Elm meant he still wanted to bolster his squad with more firepower.

He added: “Given the pedigree that he has of winning trophies it was an easy decision.”
