Berba doubt for Fulham

Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov faces a fitness test on his hamstring ahead of the Barclays Premier League clash at Norwich.

Urby Emanuelson could make his first start if the Bulgarian misses out, while Martin Jol is still to assess the fitness of his 12 players who spent midweek on international duty, with Costa Rica’s Bryan Ruiz only expected to return on the eve of the trip to Carrow Road.

Steve Sidwell (knee) and Kieran Richardson (calf) are available again, new signings Stanislav Manolev and Eyong Enoh are unlikely to feature after being made to wait for their work permits, while Mahamadou Diarra (both knee) and Kerim Frei (pelvis) remain out.

Provisional squad: Schwarzer, Somogyi, Etheridge, Riether, Hangeland, Hughes, Senderos, Riise, Briggs, Dejagah, Baird, Karagounis, Kacaniklic, Frimpong, Berbatov, Sidwell, Richardson, Duff, Kasami, Ruiz, Emanuelson, Rodallega, Petric, Davies.
