TRIO BACK IN THE FRAME
We've been handed a triple boost on the injury front with Aaron Lennon, Michael Dawson and Younes Kaboul all in the frame for Fulham.
We've been handed a triple boost on the injury front with Aaron Lennon, Michael Dawson and Younes Kaboul all in the frame for Fulham.Chris Hughton reported at Thursday afternoon’s pre-Fulham media briefing that all three players have returned to training this week.
Flying winger Aaron underwent minor knee surgery earlier at the end of May and has yet to feature this season.
Michael - who played 58 of our 59 matches last season - has also yet to make his first appearance this term after injuring his ankle on August 10, the day before our opener at Sunderland, while Younes picked up a hamstring problem against Everton on August 14.
“Aaron has had three very good days of training this week after his period of rehabilitation and comes back into our thoughts,” said Chris at Spurs Lodge.
“There are players that we know are ruled out completely this weekend but Aaron is not ruled out completely. We will make a decision in the next couple of days as to whether or not he will play a part at Fulham.”
As for centre-backs Michael and Younes, Chris added: “Both are back in contention after a few days training. To have lost three central defenders at the start of the season was a major blow, so to have two back in contention is a real lift for us.”
