Parker to make welcome return

Last Updated: Fri, 18 Oct 2013 10:18

Scott Parker appears to have shaken off injury to return for Fulham in their Premier League match at Crystal Palace on Monday.

The midfielder has been sidelined with a calf problem, but subject to a fitness assessment, will make a welcome return to Martin Jol's squad.

Defender Aaron Hughes will also train with the squad ahead of the fixture as he continues his recovery from a thigh injury, and the manager has also declared Adel Taarabt fit after the recent international matches.

Goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is back in the squad and could be vying to start in Monday night's London derby at Selhurst Park.

Jol also expects Brede Hangeland and Dimitar Berbatov to be fit for the clash with the struggling Eagles after they were forced off against Stoke City with knocks.

The Fulham manager also confirmed that Ashkan Dejagah are back in the frame following injuries.
