Diomansy Kamara is set to be included in a Fulham squad for the first time this season after the striker came through 70 minutes of a behind-closed doors friendly this week.
The man bought from West Brom two seasons ago is drafted back into action after injuries to Mousa Dembele and Bobby Zamora has left the Whites short up front.
Dembele could be out for up to three weeks after an reckless tackle by Stoke’s Andy Wilkinson damaged his ankle ligaments in the midweek Carling Cup defeat to Stoke.
The Belgian international has made a flying start to his Craven Cottage career, but boss Mark Hughes insists his team will get by on what’s left in front of him.
He added: “I can change the personnel and the formation if needs be. And Damien Duff is available for selection again.
“Duffer got no reaction (to a calf problem) in the last two training sessions, and we’re hopeful of including him.”
Striker Andy Johnson rejoins training with the first-team group on Monday for the first time in nine months, but the Whites are likely to start with Clint Dempsey and Zoltan Gera up front.
Keeper David Stockdale is also set to resume training on Monday
