Fulham vs Wolves

Championship Match 03 at Craven Cottage

Wednesday 20th August 2014    KO: 20:00

Referee: James Linington

Fulham (from):

Ross McCormack is poised to return to the Fulham starting line-up for the visit of Wolves.

The £11million striker was dropped to the bench for Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Millwall after a disappointing debut, but impressed as a half-time substitute as well as building up his match fitness, which had been a concern for manager Felix Magath.

Fellow forward Adam Taggart remains the only injury absentee with an ankle problem.

Magath could make further changes with Shaun Hutchinson, Chris David and Cauley Woodrow pushing for starts.


Wolves also have no fresh injury worries.

Kenny Jackett's side suffered a 1-0 defeat at Rotherham on Saturday - their second straight loss after a shock League Cup exit to Northampton.

Jackett is still in the market for a striker after seeing a move for Leicester's Chris Wood collapse last week while the club could not agree a fee with Crewe for out-of-contract Max Clayton. Crewe were due compensation as ex-trainee Clayton was under 24 and had been offered a new deal.

He will take an unchanged squad to Craven Cottage as Tommy Rowe (broken toe) will not feature. The midfielder played 45 minutes in Wolves' under-21 game with West Brom on Monday night.
