C. Palace v Fulham -Match Preview

last updated Wednesday 01st August 2001, 6:04 PM
Fulham continue their pre-season campaign at Crystal Palace tonight and expect to field a strong team. Tonight’s match sees Fulham enter the final straight of their pre-season fixture list.

Manager Jean Tigana reports no major injury worries, although Bjarne Goldbaek may not be risked after needing stitches in a head wound.

New signings Steed Malbranque and Edwin Van der Sar will not play, but Fulham say the rest of the squad is raring to go following a week-long training camp in France.

Crystal Palace, under the leadership of new boss Steve Bruce, will be looking to get back on the winning track following their pre-season defeat to Cardiff.

Whilst the Eagles suffered at the hands of Bluebirds striker Robert Earnshaw at Ninian Park, Whites’ hitman Louis Saha will be eager to get back on the score sheet after his uneventful evening at Celtic Park.

Tonight's first-team match kicks off at 8.00pm,
