FULHAM are waiting on the fitness of Aaron Hughes ahead of Saturday's trip to Villa Park.
The Northern Irish defender is a major doubt with a calf problem, and will be assessed tomorrow before the visit to the Midlands.
However, the Whites are boosted by the return of Bryan Ruiz to the squad after the Costa Rican miss last weekend's win against Wolves through illness.
Stephen Kelly (thigh), Steve Sidwell (hernia) and Zdenek Grygera (knee) miss out.
