Team News: West Ham v Fulham
Fulham target Dimitar Berbatov is unlikely to be able to make his debut against West Ham after there was a delay in completing the deal
Manager Martin Jol will, however, welcome back the majority of the players who missed the midweek Capital One Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.
Forward Mladen Petric did not feature in the 1-0 loss due to a slight knock, while midfielder Mahamadou Diarra was rested.
Full-back John-Arne Riise returns following a muscular injury but Bryan Ruiz, who pulled up with a hamstring problem during the warm-up at Hillsborough, is a doubt with Kerim Frei (pelvis) and Philippe Senderos (foot) still ruled out.
Squad: Schwarzer, Stockdale, Somogyi, Etheridge, Kelly, Riise, Hangeland, Baird, Briggs, Grygera, Hughes, Riether, Halliche, Diarra, Sidwell, Kasami, Duff, Ruiz, Kacaniklic, Petric, Rodallega, Trotta.
