FULHAM are boosted by the return of Aaron Hughes for Saturday's trip to the Britannia.
The Northern Irishman has been sidelined with a groin injury since last month's draw with Blackburn Rovers.
But the 31-year-old is now back in full training and set to return to the defence against Stoke.
However, Martin Jol is counting the cost of the international break after two of his players returned with injuries.
Philippe Senderos (thigh) and Kerim Frei (ankle) suffered knocks while on duty with Switzerland, and Bryan Ruiz (knee) also misses out.
Simon Davies (knee) is the only long-term absentee.
