Aaron Hughes is available to make his Fulham debut after overcoming an ankle injury.

The defender has not figured since joining from Aston Villa during the summer.

Lee Cook’s knee injury keeps him on the sidelines though, alongside Philippe Christanval, Brian McBride and Jimmy Bullard.

Fulham’s medical team are checking up on David Healy’s recent calf complaint, but he is expected to start.

New signings Danny Murphy, Seol Ki-Hyeon and Shefki Kuqi could all make it on to the substitutes’ bench.
