Fulham at Sunderland - Team News

last updated Monday 26th January 2009, 8:13 PM

Fulham (from):

Schwarzer, Zuberbuhler,

Paintsil, Stoor, Hangeland, Hughes, Baird, Konchesky, Kallio,

Andreasen, Etuhu, Murphy, Davies, Gray, Gera,

Zamora, Nevland, Johnson, Dempsey.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has no fresh injury concerns.

Hodgson experimented with playing Clint Dempsey up front in Saturday's FA Cup tie at non-league Kettering, but is more likely to go with Andrew Johnson and Bobby Zamora after they swung the match the way of the Cottagers.

Andranik Teymourian (knee) is gaining match fitness in the reserves but Diomansy Kamara (knee) remains in the treatment room.

Sunderland (from):

Fulop, Colgan,

Bardsley, McShane, McCartney, Ferdinand, Collins,

Whitehead, Malbranque, Leadbitter, Tainio, Edwards, Yorke, Reid, Henderson,

Diouf, Cisse, Jones, Murphy, Healy, Chopra.

Sunderland manager Ricky Sbragia is expected to turn to his big guns once again for Fulham's Barclays Premier League trip to the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night.

The Scot rested strikers Kenwyne Jones and Djibril Cisse, as well as midfielders Dean Whitehead and El-Hadji Diouf, from the starting line-up for Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round clash with Blackburn, but all four could return.

Teemu Tainio is available after serving a one-match ban, while George McCartney could feature once again after returning from his long-term foot injury as a substitute at the weekend, and Paul McShane can play after being cup-tied.

Kieran Richardson remains a doubt despite resuming training after an ankle problem, while Nyron Nosworthy (hamstring) and Craig Gordon (ankle) are still out.
