Fulham could be without up to three of their key players for Saturday’s match against Hull City.

Goalkeeper Marek Rodak was sent off for the Cottagers during their goalless draw with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium and will serve a one-match suspension for the weekend’s clash against the Tigers at Craven Cottage.

Rodak’s ban will mean that Marcus Bettinelli is likely to start in goal in the capital, the man who replaced Rodak in their stalemate in the north east at the weekend.

Midfielders Stefan Johansen and Harry Arter both missed that match through injuries and are doubts for the weekend. Arter has missed Fulham’s last two matches through injury, whilst Johansen has only missed one.

One midfielder who is set to feature for Scott Parker’s side on Saturday is Tom Cairney, Fulham’s club captain who came through the ranks with City.

Cairney made 80 appearances for City during his four seasons as a professional before heading to Blackburn Rovers prior to his West London switch.

Fulham are one point off the play-off places.

Hull City Assistant Manager Cliff Byrne has revealed that Norbert Balogh is likely to miss Hull City’s trip to Fulham on Saturday.

The Hungarian forward sustained a calf injury during the win over Nottingham Forest eight days ago, ruling him out of the victory against Derby County at the weekend.

Balogh has played just once for the Tigers since arriving in England as a free agent following his release from Palermo earlier this year.

Whilst City’s assistant head coach is confident that the 23-year-old’s injury is not a serious one, he explains that Saturday’s visit to west London will probably come to soon for Balogh to return.

“I think it might be a little too soon for Norbert,” said Byrne.

“He has not reacted to treatment as well as we would have hoped so I think that may have bought him back another week or something like that but it is one we are looking at on a day to day basis and the physios are right on top of that.

“Norbert will be fit and ready when the medical department sign him off. No immediate concerns.”

Apart from Balogh, head coach Grant McCann has a near fully available squad for the weekend’s trip to London, their third of the season.

Forwards Balogh and Josh Magennis will be absent through injury and suspension respectively and Byrne believes that the rest of the squad should all be available for the weekend.

“None that I am currently aware of, everybody has got a clean bill of health, same way as last week,” added McCann’s assistant Byrne.
