He tells his team’s news website “Regarding injured players, the news is that [Mahamadou] Diarra is still out and Kerim Frei is still out, and that is probably it.” He added “[Mladen] Petri? had a little problem but, hopefully, on Friday he will train with us and then go to Manchester.”
He says, despite the modified lineup today, his team will be ready for City. “It would be better to get the points against the Wigan Athletics and Southamptons of this world. We got two draws [in those matches] so that was disappointing because you can’t expect a team like Fulham to rack up six points against Manchester United and Man City, so every point will be a bonus and we will fight for every point.”

He believes that his team is on a path to improvement however based upon their recent records. “We are still unbeaten in January. We won two away games, which was good; against West Bromwich Albion and Blackpool. We got two draws against Blackpool and Wigan – so our form is not alarming. ” For live score updates today, click HERE.
