Chris Coleman currently has no idea what sort of side he will be able to put out as Fulham face Manchester City at Craven Cottage on Bank Holiday Monday.

His forward options are depleted with both Tomasz Radzinski and Collins John facing late fitness tests after the pair came off injured against Everton on Friday. The Canadian international is a significant doubt with a back problem, whilst John pulled a thigh muscle as the Whites were thrashed 4-1 at Goodison Park.

Coleman rates the chances of Ian Pearce, who missed the trip to Merseyside with a foot problem, and Franck Quedrue, who has yet to fully shake off a hamstring problem, as around 50-50. He is more hopeful about the likelihood of Vincenzo Montella, who has been sidelined with a groin problem, playing some part against City.

Micah Richards and Dietmar Hamann have an ouside chance of featuring for City, who could move onto 40 Premier League points with a win at Craven Cottage. The duo were unavailable for the goalless draw against Charlton but undertook light training over the weekend. Sylvain Distin should be available despite suffering a head injury in the closing stages against the Addicks.
