Fulham forwards Bobby Zamora and Mousa Dembele are both available for Sunday’s west London derby against QPR after recovering from illness.

The Cottagers will give Aaron Hughes (knee) a fitness test tomorrow and Matthew Briggs is also a doubt with a bruised ankle that he suffered in last night’s Europa League win against Odense.

Simon Davies remains sidelined by a long-term knee injury but Fulham boss Martin Jol said today that he hopes the midfielder will be available for selection by November.

Provisional squad: Schwarzer, Hughes, Hangeland, Baird, J Riise, Kelly, Briggs, Sidwell, Duff, Kasami, Murphy, Dempsey, Dembele, Ruiz, Zamora, Etheridge, Senderos, Briggs, Grygera, Frei, Gecov, Sa, Johnson.
