Damien Duff and Dickson Etuhu will miss out for Fulham.

Duff is being rested in an attempt to overcome a niggling calf injury while Etuhu will be out for between two to three weeks with an ankle problem.

Mousa Dembele is available after recovering from his ankle injury but Andy Johnson (knee) is still one week away from a first-team return.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will leave it late to decide whether to play central defender Ledley King at Fulham or save him for Wednesday's Champions League encounter against Inter Milan.

Younes Kaboul and William Gallas, meanwhile, are back in training and David Bentley is on his way back from injury.

Long-term absentee Jonathan Woodgate, who has travelled the world in his search for a cure to his chronic injury problems, has had another injection in his troublesome groin and Redknapp says: "We are staying positive and hoping he will play again."

Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Etheridge, Kelly, Pantsil, Salcido, Baird, Hangeland, Hughes, Halliche, Gera, Murphy, Riise, Dempsey, E Johnson, Greening, Davies, Dikgacoi, Kamara, Dembele.

Tottenham (from): Gomes, Hutton, Huddlestone, Bassong, Assou-Ekotto, Van der Vaart, Sandro, Jenas, Modric, Palacios, Bale, Pavlyuchenko, Lennon, Crouch, Cudicini, Keane, Kranjcar, Corluka, King.
