Premier League Preview: West Brom – Fulham

After three points from five matches, the host side will want its first win at The Hawthorns while Martin Jol's men will want to take home three points for the first time.


PROBABLE LINEUPS

WEST BROM

Foster
Reid, Olsson, Dawson, Shorey
Morrison, Scharner, Mulumbu, Thomas
Long, Odemwingie

FULHAM

Schwarzer
Kelly, Hangeland, Baird, JA Riise
Dempsey, Murphy, Sidwell, Duff
Zamora, Dembele

Chris Brunt and Zoltan Gera are approaching full fitness and could both start for the home side, but Gabriel Tamas will miss out as part of his ban for elbowing James Vaughan against Norwich.

Aaron Hughes is a doubt for Fulham after he had to be taken off during the first half of the game against Blackburn Rovers, while Bjorn Helge Riise may be unavailable due to the hamstring problem sustained after the game against RNK Split.

Dickson Etuhu missed the recent Europa League clash against Twente due to a thigh problem and is also a doubt for this fixture.
