Captain Luis Boa Morte is set to return to Fulham’s starting line-up against Everton at Craven Cottage in tomorrow’s lunchtime kick off.
The Portuguese winger played 22 minutes as a substitute in last week’s 1-0 home defeat by Wigan after five weeks out with a fractured cheekbone. Boa Morte is likely to replace Michael Brown, who has been ruled out with a bruised ankle.
David Moyes has been handed some good news ahead of the trip to London with Nuno Valente available again after coming through training with no alarms following his groin injury. Whether the Portuguese full back makes an immediate return to the starting eleven will depend on how many Everton regulars are still struggling with the virus that has ripped through the Goodison Park camp. Moyes will definitely be without Alessandro Pistone, Tony Hibbert, David Weir, Paddy Boyle and Gary Naysmith.
