Team News

  • Fulham continue to have problems at the back with Kieran Richardson still sidelined, while Aaron Hughes missed international duty in the week with a thigh problem.
  • Meanwhile Fernando Amorebieta is yet to make his debut, though he is nearing a return to fitness from a knock and could be in contention.
  • Stekelenburg should be back fit but will have competition in goal from Stockdale, who impressed against Newcastle last time out.
  • James Morrison pulled out of international duty along with compatriot Graham Dorrans so both are doubtful for this one but could be in contention.
  • Youngster George Thorne is back in training but will need to play some reserve matches before he is ready for first team action.
  • With Ben Foster set to miss out for some time Boaz Myhill should continue to get the nod over Luke Daniels in goal.
  • New signings Sessegnon, Anichebe and Amalfitano could all be in contention but may settle for a place on the bench this time out.

Prediction

  • Both of these sides have looked blunt in attack this season so this match is unlikely to be a classic. Only Hull have had fewer shots than Fulham (24) while West Brom are the only side yet to score in the league.
  • Fulham will hope to change that trend however, having avoided defeat in their last 5 matches against West Brom and scored 15 goals in their last 5 home league games against the Baggies.
  • The home advantage may well be telling in this fixture and Fulham could secure their second win of the season, though they may have to settle for the odd goal this time out.
