last updated Friday 15th August 2008, 11:51 AM

Fulham (from):

Schwarzer, Zuberbuhler, Stockdale,

Stoor, Pantsil, Volz, Hangeland, Hughes, Konchesky, Baird, Kallio,

Andreasen, Bullard, Murphy, Davies, Gera, Smertin, Davis, Seol, Andranik,

Zamora, Nevland, Dempsey, E Johnson, Heal.

Fulham will kick off the new season without £10.5million striker Andrew Johnson, who is still recovering from a thigh injury.

The England international is manager Roy Hodgson's only absentee apart from long-term knee injury victim Diomansy Kamara and the former Inter Milan boss must decide how many debuts are to be handed out at the KC Stadium.

Goalkeepers Mark Schwarzer, Pascal Zuberbuhler and David Stockdale, defenders John Pantsil and Fredrik Stoor, midfielders Andranik Teymourian and Zoltan Gera and striker Bobby Zamora will all be hoping for first appearances for their new club.

Hull (from):

A Myhill, Warner,

Turner, Gardner, Mendy, Cooper, Ricketts, Dawson,

Boateng, Featherstone, France, Doyle, Ashbee, Barmby, Halmosi, Geovanni, Hughes, Marney,

King, Windass, Garcia, Fagan,

Striker Marlon King could go straight into the Hull side for their Barclays Premier League opener against Fulham.

The Jamaica international joined the club on a season-long loan from Wigan on Thursday and will compete for a place with veteran Dean Windass and Caleb Folan up front.

King is one of a number of new signings that could make his Tigers debut in this weekend's clash at the KC Stadium.

Peter Halmosi, George Boateng, Anthony Gardner, Bernard Mendy and Geovanni could all feature in a much-changed Hull side.

Folan received treatment for a muscle strain this week but is now fit and manager Phil Brown has no other injury worries.
