Fulham manager Felix Magath hopes he will have Kieran Richardson, Sascha Riether and Mahamadou Diarra back from injury for Saturday’s game with Hull.

The trio missed the 3-1 defeat through illness and injury and the German is hopeful that they can return to the squad for a crunch fixture against the FA Cup finalists.

“Sascha Riether was ill and he’s at home this morning and Kieran Richardson and Diarra and injured and not beling to the team today,” Magath explained.

“They’re only small injuries. Diarra has a knee problem but he joined us yesterday and the day before so I am sure that he can be with us next week.

“Kieran tried this morning but he has muscle problems. It doesn’t work so he will join us next week.

“All the players will be back. Sascha Riether has throat, headache and he will be good next week.”

Scott Parker limped off on Saturday but Magath revealed that there is no concern with the former England captain.

He said: “He had a kick on the muscle but he is confident and sure that he can train next week.”
