Martin Jol is expected to recall Dimitar Berbatov and Mahamadou Diarra to his Fulham side to face Aston Villa tomorrow.

Berbatov has recovered from his troublesome injury and could be paired with Mladen Petric up front at Craven Cottage after the Croatian international overcame a calf problem. Diarra’s earlier than expected return from a knee injury could see him go straight back into central midfield, but Simon Davies is definitely out and Bryan Ruiz will face a late fitness test on his groin strain.
