Striker Darren Bent returns to the Fulham squad for the trip to Evertonafter recovering from a slight hamstring problem.

Defender Fernando Amorebieta (hamstring) could also return to the squad.

"We will keep an eye on Fernando and assess him. He is close," said Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen.

Brede Hangeland is making good progress after surgery on his sciatic nerve complaint while striker Hugo Rodallega is recovering from a muscle injury and defender Matthew Briggs progressing well after his hernia operation.

Everton midfielder James McCarthy is suspended for the visit of Fulham after accumulating five bookings this season.

Leon Osman, a substitute for last weekend's draw at Arsenal, is the most likely replacement although youngster Ross Barkley could be asked to drop slightly deeper.

Defender Tony Hibbert picked up a slight knee injury in training and will not be fit until next week while left-back Leighton Baines is realistically at least 10 days away from recovering from a broken toe.
