Fulham manager Martin Jol is set to return to the Fulham dugout on Tuesday for their second match on Merseyside in four days.

Jol did not travel with the Cottagers squad for their Barclays Premier League game at Liverpool after missing Saturday’s defeat at Everton with a chest infection.

But, according to reports this morning, the Dutchman has been given the all clear to link up with them on Tuesday ahead of the match at Anfield.

Jol’s presence appeared to be badly missed at Goodison Park as Fulham crashed to their heaviest away defeat since he was appointed manager summer, with first-team coach Billy McKinlay handed the reins.

Regardless of who is in the dugout, Fulham’s players are determined to make amends on Tuesday for Saturday’s defeat, which was a huge blow to their hopes of finishing above Liverpool in the table.

The sides had been level on points and almost level on goal difference before the weekend but the ninth-placed Cottagers will need to produce their first ever victory at Anfield to move back to the same points tally as their opponents tomorrow night.
