Fulham v Latics Early Team News

Fulham v Latics Early Team News



The Latics travel to London to face Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday, this will be the second time in five days and the third in time in two weeks that we have been in the capital following visits to Chelsea and Arsenal.

Looking ahead to the game both sides have injury doubts, for the Latics Albert Crusat and Hugo Rodallega are definitely out whilst Shaun Maloney is touch and go, speaking about the injuries Latics boss Roberto Martinez said: 'Unfortunately it looks as though Albert Crusat will be out for the next two weeks with a calf problem which is disappointing given the form he was reaching'

'Hugo Rodallega remains on the sidelines having not yet fully recovered from his injury.

'But everyone else is fully fit and desperate to play a part in these final four games which is very important.

'Shaun Maloney is expected back in training today (Thursday) with a good chance of making the game on Saturday which is positive news but it's difficult to tell whether he'll be 100% ready for the game.'

Meanwhile in the Fulham camp Bryan Ruiz, Stephen Kelly, Zdenek Gryera, Steve Sidwell and Neil Etheridge are all out, but Andy Johnson and dangerman Pavel Pogrebnyak are set to return

Speaking about the injury situation Fulham boss Martin Jol said: "Andy Johnson is back after his injury and Pavel [Pogrebnyak] will be back too"

"Bryan Ruiz is out of course and that will be at least 10 weeks. Stephen Kelly won`t be involved either after he hurt his wrist but he will be back in training next week.

"Zdenek Grygera has a long-term injury, Steve Sidwell is still out too and Neil Etheridge, with his wrist, is the same."
