Roy Hodgson claims Fulham can repeat last season’s seventh-place finish when his ‘dangerous’ front two make their return from injury.

The Fulham boss has already praised in-form striker Bobby Zamora, who scored his fifth of the campaign and second on the spin as the Cottagers extended their unbeaten run in the league to four in the 1-1 draw at Burnley.

But the visitors could and probably should have taken maximum points from the Turf Moor clash and the Cottagers slipped down a place into ninth after Birmingham continued their own fine form as they beat West Ham.

And Hodgson claims his depleted attack will be firing on all cylinders when he can welcome back strike duo Diomansy Kamara and Andrew Johnson.

Kamara is out with a knee injury while Johnson has been out since October with a groin problem and, with the duo’s return date in sight, the Fulham tactician has his sights on another top-seven finish.

Hodgson said: “I’m hoping pretty soon I’ll have both Diomansy Kamara and Andrew Johnson back to bolster our strike-force and that will maybe make us a little bit more dangerous in the final third.
