Fulham midfielder Alexey Smertin will miss tomorrow’s Barclays Premiership clash with Everton because of a muscle problem.

German full-back Moritz Volz is one match away from being available as he continue to build up his fitness following shoulder, groin and foot problems.

Phillipe Christanval (knee), Kasey Keller (bicep), Lee Cook (knee), Ian Pearce (calf), Brian McBride (knee) and Jimmy Bullard (knee) are still sidelined.
