Fulham assistant manager Steve Kean has revealed that full back Wayne Bridge could return to the starting line-up at the weekend.

Bridge sprained his ankle on international duty with England but could return ahead of schedule for Fulham’s weekend trip to Everton.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Kean said that Bridge had made excellent progress having worked hard since picking up the knock.

“Wayne Bridge has got a good chance which is great news,” he said.

“When he first got injured in the England game we thought it would be a number of weeks but he’s progressed and pushed himself really hard.

“He’s got a good chance.”
