Fulham v Stoke preview

Sascha Riether is available again for Fulham against Stoke after he lost his ever-present Premier League record when being forced to miss the 0-0 draw with Norwich City due to illness.

Stanislav Manolev made his Fulham debut in place of Riether against the Canaries, while Dimitar Berbatov passed a fitness test on his hamstring to start at Carrow Road.

Steve Sidwell returned after a knee injury and is available again, but Mahamadou Diarra is an absentee due to a knee problem.

Brek Shea and Marc Wilson are both set to feature in Stoke's squad for the Premier League clash at Craven Cottage.

Winger Shea, who has been recovering from a foot operation, is yet to be included in a Potters matchday party following his January move from FC Dallas, while full-back Wilson's last involvement with the first team was when he broke his leg against Sunderland in October.

The pair are now fit for selection, as is forward Cameron Jerome, despite suffering a knock to his knee, but striker Michael Owen is a doubt after he felt a problem with his thigh in training.
