Fulham v Blackburn: Team News

last updated Friday 20th April 2007, 4:18 PM

French full-back Franck Queudrue will miss Fulham's Barclays Premiership clash with Blackburn because of a twisted ankle.

Queudrue sustained the injury in training and is likely to be replaced by Liam Rosenior, with Moritz Volz plugging the gap at right-back.

Ian Pearce also misses the match at Craven Cottage after suffering a calf problem in last Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Reading.

Fulham (from):

Niemi, Lastuvka,

Volz, Knight, Christanval, Bocanegra, Rosenoir,

Davies, Brown, Diop, Smertin, Dempsey, Routledge,

Radzinski, McBride, Helguson, Montella, John.

Jason Roberts is set to retain his place in the Blackburn side as they head to Fulham still with an outside chance of finishing in the Barclays Premiership's top seven and earning a UEFA Cup place.

Roberts has impressed in two starts since his comeback from long-term injury and is expected to keep Matt Derbyshire on the bench as boss Mark Hughes intends to name an unchanged side.

Rovers' only definite absentee is on-loan striker Shabani Nonda, who has still not recovered from the knee injury which also kept him out of the midweek victory over Watford.

Blackburn (from):

Friedel, Enckelman,

Emerton, Todd, Henchoz, Khizanishvili, Nelsen, Samba, Warnock, Berner,

Bentley, Mokoena, Dunn, Peter, Tugay, Pedersen,

McCarthy, Gallagher, Derbyshire, Roberts,
