Fulham winger Damien Duff is expected to miss tomorrow’s Europa League Group E clash against CSKA Sofia.

Fulham winger Damien Duff is expected to miss tomorrow’s Europa League Group E clash against CSKA Sofia.

The Republic of Ireland player is expected to recover from a knock to return for Sunday’s clash with Wolves, however.

Fulham will make nine changes for tomorrow’s game, with only goalkeeper David Stockdale and defender and John Pantsil survive from the starting line-up that defeated Everton 2-1 in the Premier League last Sunday.

First team regulars Danny Murphy, Clint Dempsey, Paul Konchesky and Mark Schwarzer are in the treatment room but should be fit for the league clash.

Boss Roy Hodgson has opted to rest the likes of Andrew Johnson, Bobby Zamora and Brede Hangeland and will call on first team fringe players such as Erik Nevland and Bjorn Helge Riise.

Team (from): Zuberbuhler, Stockdale, Stoor, Pantsil, Kelly, Baird, Smalling, Andranik, Riise, Davies, Greening, Nevland, Kamara, Seol, E Johnson, Elm, Dikgacoi.
