Andrew Johnson is set to keep his place for tonight's trip to Stoke City.

The Fulham frontman made his first start for three months in the FA Cup win against Swindon on Saturday, but missed a penalty as the Whites held on to secure a fourth round trip to either Accrington Stanley or Gillingham.

However, boss Roy Hodgson is set to keep faith with the pint-sized striker at the Britannia Stadium.

He said: "Bobby [Zamora] and AJ have got a good understanding, They were our first-choice strikers. I bought them to play in those positions, and they kicked us into seventh place last season."

Meanwhile, Paul Konchesky should shake off a back injury to start, while Hodgson is also hopeful Brede Hangeland could return.

Danny Murphy and Chris Baird should start in the centre of midfield after missing Saturday's win against the Robins.
