Referee Fred Graham
Fred Graham will take charge of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship game between Fulham and Birmingham at Craven Cottage. Refereeing his first Football League game at Notts County on the first day of season 2004/05.

The Essex-based official has refereed just seven games so far this season, during which he has produced a total of 16 yellow cards but no reds. Last season Ref Graham bossed 33 games issuing 122 yellows, an average of 3.7 per game and 4 reds so he is a bit calmer this season

This will be Ref Graham's first official visit to Craven Cottage. The last Birmingham game he refereed was the Championship fixture against Yeovil Town at St. Andrew's in January 2014, which Birmingham lost 2-0.


Fulham will be hoping captain Scott Parker is passed fit for Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Birmingham at Craven Cottage.

The former England international was missing from the side beaten 3-1 by Sunderland in Tuesday's FA Cup replay due to illness.

On-loan Swansea full-back Jazz Richards returns after he was cup-tied in midweek, while midfielder Lasse Vigen Christensen could be back in the starting line-up after dropping to the bench following his recent return from a hamstring injury.

Defenders Sean Kavanagh, Fernando Amorebieta (both knee) and Tim Hoogland (hernia) are set to miss out again.

Birmingham City

Birmingham defender Michael Morrison remains out with a knee injury.

He joins Gavin Gunning and Matt Green (both knee) on the sidelines for Gary Rowett.

But Demarai Gray is expected to feature for Blues after he stayed despite interest from Bournemouth.

Birmingham rejected five bids from the Cherries during the transfer window.
