Fulham striker Darren Bent has been ruled out of Fulham’s clash against West Brom due to a hamstring injury.
The on-loan Aston Villa frontman faces a week on the sidelines, with Dimitar Berbatov set to play a lone role in attack.
Keeper Maarten Stekelenburg (shoulder) is still sidelined, so David Stockdale will continue in goal, while Matthew Briggs (hip) and Aaron Hughes (thigh) have failed to recover in time to feature.
But Whites boss Martin Jol is boosted by the return of Kieran Richardson following four weeks out with a hamstring problem.
Summer signing Fernando Amorebieta is in the squad for the first time, while deadline-day arrival Elsad Zverotic is also included among the 18.
