Fulham striker Heidar Helguson is widely reported as being suspended for the Charlton game.

But that is not correct. The Icelandic international will need to serve a suspension after picking up five books, but FA rules specify that the ban only starts seven days after the game in which the offence occurs. Helguson’s last caution came against West Ham so he will miss the trip to Stamford Bridge rather than the Valley.
