Armstrong still absent

English Barclays Premiership

Glenn Hoddle is in no doubt as to the potential threat of Fulham at the Lane on Saturday.

Chris Coleman's side brims with attacking promise with the likes of Louis Saha, Barry Hayles, Steed Malbranque and Slyvain Legwinski around.

The Cottagers beat Middlesbrough 3-2 on the opening day but suffered a 3-1 defeat at Everton despite reports of typically impressive passing display.

"They are always an offensive side with good, attacking players," said Glenn. "On any given day they can beat any team.

"Chris is doing a good job down there. He's new into the job, did well at the end of last season and, rightly so, they gave him the job.

"We didn't beat them last season having beaten them three times the year before, and we were 2-0 up at their place and lost 3-2, so we'd like to put the record straight there."
