Sheff Utd v Fulham squad news

last updated Monday 20th November 2000, 8:19 PM
John Collins is the only absentee from Jean Tigana's squad as Fulham make the journey north to face Sheffield United. The ex-Scottish international missed Saturday's win against Portsmouth with a hamstring injury.

The Cottagers will look to extend their winning run which has seen them pick up thirteen points from their last fives games.

Neil Warnock knows that his Blades will have to be on their guard against the division's top scorers who have been rampant of late, netting three goals in each of their last five games.

And a win over the Yorkshire club would increase Fulham's gap over Watford to eight points. A spokesman for the club said: "The lads are very positive at the moment."

Meanwhile, United have striker Patrick Suffo available for the first time - but whether he is in the squad is a closely-guarded secret.

The Cameroon international, who won an Olympic gold medal in Sydney, has been serving a suspension for an incident with an official whilst with French outfit Nantes. But now his ban has elapsed and Warnock has another option up front.

There is a possibility that Suffo will start - but Warnock was concerned about the forward's fitness in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Barnsley last week, so a place in the squad is more likely.

United have no injury worries after their victory over Grimsby on Saturday, a result which ended their run of three defeats on the bounce.
