Jol has fingers crossed on Schwarzer comeback

Fulham were today hoping Mark Schwarzer would be fit to return for their New Year’s Day clash at West Brom.

David Stockdale had a nightmare deputising for the injured Schwarzer (neck) in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Swansea, and manager Martin Jol was keeping his fingers crossed his number one would be back at The Hawthorns tomorrow.

Damien Duff is battling to be fit but the game is set to come too soon for Mahamadou Diarra and Mladen Petric.

Provisional squad: Schwarzer, Stockdale, Etheridge, Riether, Kelly, Hangeland, Hughes, Senderos, Riise, Dejagah, Baird, Sidwell, Karagounis, Kacaniklic, Kasami, Duff, Ruiz, Rodallega, Berbatov.
