My local paper seems to think that ‘Fulham are sweating on the fitness of Paul Konchesky’ ahead of Saturday, although I’m not so sure about that.

It would be a big risk to throw a left back who hasn’t played for a month or so into a high pressure FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham. The consensus from Tuesday night’s reserve game was that Konchesky was feeling his way back to fitness rather than closing in on a first-team return. Besides, Nicky Shorey’s been doing well at left back of late and would be my choice for the Spurs game. Am I wrong?
