I’m sure you don’t need reminding but the Whites are back in action tonight.

Roy Hodgson is expected to take a strong squad to Bournemouth for the friendly against the League Two side. The fixture at Dean Court – and Saturday’s game against Peterborough – should prove useful warm-ups for next week, when Fulham will return to European competition with the first leg of their Europa League third qualifying round tie at either FK Vetra or HJK Helsinki.

The reserves are also in action tonight a little closer to home at Blue Square South side Woking. Both matches kick off at 7.45pm and I hope to have reports from the fixtures in due course.
