Martin Jol is waiting on the fitness of Pavel Pogrebnyak for Fulham's Easter weekend action, but Andrew Johnson continues to miss out.
The Cottagers chief has plenty of options available as he looks forward to the trip to Bolton on Saturday and the Easter Monday visit of Chelsea to Craven Cottage, but his main worry is over Pogrebnyak, who picked up a knock in last week's 2-1 win against Norwich.
The Russian hitman will get a chance to prove his fitness on Friday before Jol decides if he can feature at the Reebok Stadium, but he hopes to have him back for the London derby against the Blues.
However Pogrebnyak's fellow striker, Johnson, has no chance of playing in either game after picking up a thigh problem.
"Andrew Johnson has a problem with his thigh and that will take another two weeks and Pavel Pogrebnyak is also struggling," Martin Jol stated in his pre-match press conference.
"He twisted his ankle in a block tackle against Norwich last weekend. We'll do a test on Friday [on Pogrebnyak] so hopefully at the very least he will play against Chelsea and also maybe against Bolton.
"I don't think you'll see a lot of rotation [over the Easter fixtures] because we're capable of playing two matches in three days. I will try and start with my best team against Bolton and I would like to do that in the second game against Chelsea on Monday night."
If both Pogrebnyak and Johnson miss out over the weekend then Jol will again call on the likes of Marcello Trotta and Orlando Sa, who has made a timely return from a hamstring injury.
