Fulham v Sheff Utd - Squad News

last updated Friday 02nd February 2001, 3:25 PM
Fulham welcome back Luis Boa Morte from suspension for Sunday's televised match against Sheffield United.

The Portuguese striker has missed the Cottagers' last two games - the 1-0 home defeat by Birmingham and Wednesday's 2-0 victory at QPR.

Boa Morte is set to link up again with leading scorer Louis Saha and manager Jean Tigana faces a selection poser over whether to also include Peter Moller after the on-loan Danish striker scored his first goal for the club on Wednesday night.

That victory extended Fulham's advantage at the top of the First Division over nearest rivals Bolton to 10 points but Fulham skipper Kit Symons warned that they can not afford to take their foot off the gas.

He said: "The promotion race is definitely not over yet and the manager won't tolerate any complacency.

"People are playing for their places every week. We can bring players of the calibre of Peter Moller in on loan and that has got to be good for the club."

Sheffield United
Neil Warnock finally clinched the signing of Peter Ndlovu, six goals so far this season, on Friday morning with Curtis Woodhouse leaving Bramall Lane in the same deal.

The paperwork formalities on a two and half year deal were completed in time for the Zimbabwean international to play for United in Sunday's Sky clash with league leaders Fulham.

Sheffield United assistant manager Kevin Blackwell will leave the Blades defence in no doubt over who he believes to be Fulham's most potent threat.

Blackwell knows the Londoners have a player ready to terrorise the United defence.

He said: "Louis Saha really is on fire at the moment. He played brilliantly at QPR when Fulham won 2-0 and caused them all sorts of problems."With Ford and Ullathorne suspended, Devlin injured, Peschisolido unavailableSheffield United will be a bit makeshift.

In front of Keeper Tracey, Warnock will probably line up Kozluk, Murphy, Sandford and Uhlenbeek.

The midfield is likely to be chosen from, Montgomery, Brown, Santos and Ndlovu

But upfront it's a case of perm any two from four: Kelly, Suffo, D'Jaffo and Thomas
