Fulham vrs Middlesbrough - team news

last updated Friday 19th December 2008, 4:33 PM

Fulham (from):

Schwarzer, Zuberbuhler,

Paintsil, Stoor, Hangeland, Hughes, Leijer, Baird, Konchesky, Kallio,

Andreasen, Bullard, Etuhu, Murphy, Davies, Gera, Gray,

Zamora, Nevland, Johnson, Dempsey, Seol.

Fulham striker Bobby Zamora is fit after recovering from the hip injury which ept him out of last weekend's stalemate at Stoke.

He will return to partner Andrew Johnson in attack, meaning Zoltan Gera drops to the bench - while the rest of the team remains unchanged as the Cottagers look for their first win in five Barclays Premier League games.

Long-term injury victims Diomansy Kamara (knee) and midfielder Andranik remain sidelined.

Middlesbrough (from):

Turnbull, Jones,

McMahon, Taylor, Grounds, Pogatetz, Huth, Wheater, Bates, Hines, Williams,

Arca, Walker, Downing, Johnson, Emnes,

Aliadiere, Tuncay, Mido, Alves.

Middlesbrough midfielder Didier Digard is a major doubt for Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Fulham.

The Frenchman suffered a groin injury in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Arsenal and is unlikely to make the trip to Craven Cottage, while Just Hoyte is out until the new year after under surgery on a knee cartilage.

However, defender David Wheater returns from suspension - and Andrew Taylor (knee) and Mido (hamstring) are available once again.

Gary O'Neil (hamstring) remains on the sidelines but could return next weekend.
