Fulham’s Richard Stearman back from suspension versus Burnley

7 Mar

Richard Stearman returns from suspension for Fulham’s home game against Burnley.

The defender missed Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Reading after his red card against Middlesbrough the previous weekend.

Striker Cauley Woodrow is back in training after a broken foot but needs to build up his fitness.

Goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli is also working on his fitness after a long-term knee injury while Danish midfielder Lasse Christensen (hamstring) is still out.

David Jones is a doubt for in-form Burnley with an injury picked up in Saturday’s east-Lancashire derby.

The league leaders extended their unbeaten run to 12 Championship games with a 1-0 win over Blackburn but Jones was forced off with an Achilles injury during the second half.

Dean Marney is ready to step back into the squad following a calf problem, though, and his return will give Sean Dyche another option in central midfield if Jones misses out.

Ashley Barnes and Lukas Jutkiewicz (both knee) are the Clarets’ two long-term injury absentees.
