Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson miss Fulham’s trip to West Brom today due to illness and Damien Duff is not included because of personal reasons.
Orlando Sa, who made his debut in the Carling Cup at Chelsea in midweek, will continue up front in place of Zamora, whilst Pajtim Kasami replaces Duff. Zdenek Grygera is chosen ahead of Philippe Senderos to deputise for the injured Aaron Hughes. Bryan Ruiz is on the bench.
Roy Hodgson makes three changes to the team that lost at Swansea last Saturday. Skipper Chris Brunt replaces Paul Scharner, Graham Dorrans comes in for James Morrison and Gareth MacAuley is preferred to Craig Dawson at the back. The Baggies are expected to line up in a 4-3-3 formation.
