Fulham midfielder Bryan Ruiz will return to the Fulham squad for this weekend's FA Cup third round tie with Wolves.

The Costa Rican missed Monday night's 2-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion after failing a late fitness test.

However, Ruiz has been back in training this week and Whites manager Kit Symons has confirmed he will be able to select the attacking midfielder.

"Bryan is back fully fit now," said Symons.

"He had a nerve problem which made him unavailable for Monday night. We tried him just before the game but unfortunately he wasn't quite right."

Ruiz could be joined in the squad by another absentee from Monday night, Aston Villa transfer target Lasse Vigen Christensen, who trained today.

"Surprisingly, Lasse trained on Friday," Fulham chief Symons added.

"I didn't think for one minute he'd be fit but he's incredibly keen to play and be involved. We'll wait and see if there's any reaction but he could well feature."

Meanwhile, former Manchester United starlet Ryan Tunnicliffe has returned from his loan spell at Blackburn but is ineligible to play in the FA Cup.
