Fulham arrive at the JJB this afternoon still searching for their first away win of the season and with their former skipper, Michael Brown, likely to be starting for the Latics it could be a tasty affair
Lawrie Sanchez made a lot of signings this summer for the Cottagers who appear to have settled in very well and David Healey has made a good start to life as a Premiership striker
Fulham have been unlucky with a few decisions and despite playing some attractive football they`ve not accumulated the quantity of points Sanchez would have hoped for at this stage of the season.
'They are a good footballing side and showed great character to come back and snatch an equaliser in the last minute in their last home game.
'It's going to be a tough game. But in saying that, they know it's going to be a tough game.
'Both sides will probably feel they can go and win the game so it's just a matter of who performs on the day.'
'We're expecting to win the game but they're probably thinking they should beat us guys.
'Their striker Emile Heskey's been on fire for England and we'll have to keep a close eye on him. But we have a lot for them to worry about.
'I've been please that we've fought in every game this season. As long as we do what we did against Tottehnam we will do well this season.'
Denny Landzaat and Antonio Valencia are definately out injured, Kevin Kilbane is suspended, Jason Koumas should be fit and there could be debuts for Saloman Olembe and Rachid Bouaouzan
Kirkland, Melchiot, Bramble, Granqvist, Olembe, Bouaouzan, Brown, Scharner, Koumas, Heskey, Sibierski, Pollitt, Boyce, Cotterill,Skoko, Aghahowa
Koumas has been quality since his arrival this summer and will surely shine again this afternoon
Jimmy Bullard is nearing fitness after his long lay off but this game is a good 6 weeks too early for him. Healey should have recovered from the knock whilst appearing for Northern Ireland last week
Niemi, Baird, Stefanovic, Hughes, Konchesky, Davies, Davis, Smertin, Bouazza, Dempsey, Kamara, Keller, Bocanegra, Ki-Hyeon, Healy, Kuqi.
Settled in well at the Cottage and the former Preston man is looking sharp in front of goal
