Big game against a good side. AJ will be fit, Boyce won't and Sorondo is doubtful :moan: Mikele will probably fill in at RB, Powell,Popo or Hudson will cover Sorondo.
Crystal Palace will have star striker Andy Johnson fit and ready to do battle with Middlesbrough this weekend.
The England international was forced out of Sven Goran Eriksson's squad with a back injury but is now back in full training with The Eagles.
Johnson, who is the Premiership's leading English scorer, is now in line to start against Boro in what is a massive game for manager Iain Dowie.
"He [Johnson] trained fully on Tuesday and he'll train fully for the rest of the week," explained Dowie to Sky Sports News.
"I'm only concerned with looking forward. Andy will be fit for the weekend, so that's where we are.
"We've got an excellent Boro side coming down here and we have to do a job on them.
"We've got to concentrate and do our job. If we don't get our result it [Fulham's clash with Portsmouth] won't matter anyway."
Meanwhile, Dowie has defended Michael Hughes for not travelling with Northern Ireland to play in their World Cup qualifying clash against Poland.
Hughes was required after Damien Johnson was ruled out, however Dowie has stated Hughes was only on standby and possibly felt aggrieved he was not involved from the off.
"He [Hughes] was never in the squad. He was on standby so if everyone was fit he wouldn't be in the team, but then Johnson got suspended," he added.
"He then called him in so my situation was I feel Michael probably feels he should have been in that squad, but I don't want to make an issue of that because there is no issue."
