last updated Friday 02nd March 2007, 2:16 PM

Fulham will be without central defender Philippe Christanval.

A hamstring injury keeps Christanval out but Frank Queudrue has recovered from a bruised ankle.

Zat Knight and Ian Pearce are also added to the squad which lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United last Saturday.

Fulham (from):

Lastuvka, Niemi, Warner,

Volz, Knight, Pearce, Bocanegra, Rosenior, Queudrue,

Routledge, Radzinski, McBride, Helguson, John.

Aston Villa left-back Wilfred Bouma has recovered from an ankle injury and is available for Saturday's Barclays Premiership clash at Fulham - their first match in three weeks.

Villa boss Martin O'Neill has striker Luke Moore back in contention following a five month lay-off after shoulder surgery and while Patrik Berger, Jlloyd Samuel and Stuart Taylor have recovered from sickness, none are in contention to start as Villa seek only their second away win of the campaign.

Aston Villa (from):


Bardsley, Samuel, Mellberg, Ridgewell, Hughes, Cahill, Bouma,
