Fulham at home to Aston Villa :- Team News

last updated Friday 19th October 2012, 5:30 PM

Dimitar Berbatov is amongst the players Fulham can welcome back for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

The Bulgarian returns from a problem with his hip/upper thigh and will be joined in Martin Jol's side by fellow striker Mladen Petric, who has recovered from a calf problem.

Mahamadou Diarra's recovery from a knee injury means he could also be involved, although Simon Davies (hip) remains sidelined and Bryan Ruiz (groin) is a doubt.

Aston Villa midfielder Stephen Ireland will return to the squad for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Fulham after missing three games with a broken bone in his arm.

Villa boss Paul Lambert will assess the freshness of goalkeeper Brad Guzan and midfielders Brett Holman and Karim El Ahmadi after gruelling midweek trips back from playing for the United States, Australia and Morocco respectively.

Full-back Joe Bennett is expected to be fit after suffering a leg injury during the 2-0 defeat at Tottenham a fortnight ago - but central defender Richard Dunne (groin) remains a long-term casualty.
