Berba back for Cottagers

Fulham boss Martin Jol has confirmed Dimitar Berbatov will return to his side for the clash with Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City.

The striker was rested for Tuesday’s FA Cup third-round replay win over Blackpool but Jol has said Berbatov will be named in his team at the Etihad Stadium.

Steve Sidwell is also available after recovering from a hamstring problem but both Mahamadou Diarra (knee) and Kerim Frei (pelvis) are still missing.

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