Injury problems for Trotters clash

Simon Davies (ankle) could return after missing Wednesday’s win

over Portsmouth, but long-term absentees Andy Johnson (knee), Paul

Konchesky (foot), Clint Dempsey and John Pantsil (both knee

ligaments) are all out. Hodgson is hoping Zoltan Gera overcomes a

knee injury while Erik Nevland has fully recovered from a toe

injury and could replace Stefano Okaka alongside Bobby Zamora up

front. Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Hangeland, Shorey, Baird, Hughes,

Stoor, Kelly, Duff, Davies, Gera, Murphy, Nevland, Zuberbuhler,

Greening, Riise, Dikgacoi, Smalling, Elm, Zamora, Okaka.
