Fulham hopeful of Jol return

Fulham were today hopeful Martin Jol would be well enough to return to oversee training tomorrow ahead of Sunday’s Barclays Premier League game with Sunderland, it is understood.

Jol had still not recovered sufficiently from a chest infection this morning in order to resume his managerial duties, having missed the club’s last two matches at Everton and Liverpool.

The Dutchman had been been expected to be able to travel to Merseyside for Tuesday night’s historic 1-0 league win at Anfield, Fulham’s first ever victory at the ground.

He did not accompany the team on Monday but was set to join them before kick-off 24 hours later only to decide to remain in London.

Fulham produced the perfect pick-me-up, moving level on points with eighth-placed Liverpool with two league games remaining.

The win was masterminded by first-team coach Billy McKinlay, who was also in charge for Saturday’s 4-0 thrashing at Everton.
