Fulham striker Adam Taggart has suffered a setback in his recovery from a groin injury.

The Australian World Cup star is yet to make a single appearance since his summer move from Newcastle Jets.

Taggart returned to light training recently and was included in some sessions alongside his Fulham team-mates.

However, boss Kit Symons revealed the 21-year-old felt a niggle and has been put back.

“He joined in with the warm-up and a bit of passing, but then he had a little slip and felt his adductor again,” said the Craven Cottage chief.

“It’s put him back a bit, but the physio’s not worried. It’s a minor tweak.”
