Fulham are boosted by the return of Andy Johnson ahead of Saturday's west London derby with QPR.

The striker - a January transfer target for Rangers - has been sidelined with a groin injury since the FA Cup defeat at Everton a month ago.

But Johnson, who smashed a hat-trick as the Whites thumped QPR 6-0 at Craven Cottage back in October, is back in training and will return to the squad for the game at Loftus Road.

Boss Martin Jol has on-loan Stuttgart striker Pavel Pogrebnyak available again after he recovered from a foot injury sustained on his Fulham debut against Stoke a fortnight ago.

"Pavel Pogrebnyak is fit to play and hopefully he will score again on Saturday," said Jol.

"Everyone is fit and available for selection apart from two players.

"Steve Sidwell is unavailable after a small hernia operation and of course Zdenek Grygera is out for the rest of the season.

Philippe Senderos, Orlando Sa and Andrew Johnson are all back."
