Duff injury blow for Fulham

Fulham midfielder Damien Duff has been ruled out for six weeks after undergoing Achilles surgery.

Mark Hughes explained that the club had opted for surgery after treatment had not cured the problem.

Hughes said: "It just got to the point where one course of treatment was compromising another course of treatment. We made a decision that the best route was to get it sorted."

Hughes reported better news regarding top-scorer - and Fulham's new record Premier League scorer - Clint Dempsey, who missed Saturday's 3-0 win at Sunderland.

"Clint's trained after the weekend," he said. "He was a bit stiff in his hamstrings on the Friday prior to the Sunderland game, so there was no point in risking him.

"I took the view to leave him behind and he's benefited from that and he should be okay. He's trained today and he'll train right up to the game so he should be an option for us."

Brede Hangeland will also be available again after missing last weekend's game through illness, but Zoltan Gera and Rafik Halliche remain sidelined.
