Fulham visit Stoke ~ Team News

Moussa Dembele is unlikely to be fit for Fulham's Barclays Premier League game against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium on Tuesday.

The striker, who returned to training last week following five weeks out with an ankle injury, missed the 3-1 home defeat against West Ham after failing a fitness test and is not set to return before Saturday's trip to Tottenham.

Matthew Briggs (calf) is out until next month, while Bobby Zamora (leg) and Philippe Senderos (Achilles) should return in February.

STOKE           SQUAD

Stoke boss Tony Pulis will give a late fitness test to Matthew Etherington.

The midfielder limped off late in the Boxing Day win at Blackburn with an apparent ankle knock and his replacement at Ewood Park, Greg Whelan, stands by to step in.

Pulis does not expect any further injury problems and his biggest concern is whether to bring back fit-again goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen in place of Asmir Begovic.
