Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov faces a fitness test on his hamstring ahead of the Premier League clash at Norwich.
Urby Emanuelson could make his first start if the Bulgarian misses out, while Martin Jol is still to assess the fitness of his 12 players who spent midweek on international duty, with Costa Rica's Bryan Ruiz only expected to return on the eve of the trip to Carrow Road.
Steve Sidwell (knee) and Kieran Richardson (calf) are available again, new signings Stanislav Manolev and Eyong Enoh are unlikely to feature after being made to wait for their work permits, while Mahamadou Diarra (both knee) and Kerim Frei (pelvis) remain out.

Norwich manager Chris Hughton describes midfielders Anthony Pilkington and Alex Tettey as "touch and go" to be fit to play.
Pilkington and Tettey are suffering from hamstring and knee problems respectively although defender Ryan Bennett is fit again and Hughton reported a clean bill of health after his players returned from the midweek internationals.
Meanwhile, loan signing striker Kei Kamara has commenced training following his move from Sporting Kansas City in the MLS but lacks match practice and Hughton will delay assessing whether he might feature against the Cottagers.
