Republic of Ireland winger Damien Duff is injured for Fulham’s trip to Swansea in the Premier League tomorrow.

Danny Murphy and Simon Davies could be surprise inclusions, however.

Skipper Murphy looked set to miss the match after picking up an ankle knock against former club Liverpool on Monday, but is in contention after making a rapid recovery.

Fulham boss Martin Jol will check on Murphy’s fitness today along with fellow midfielder Davies, who could make his first league appearance of the season after a long-term knee complaint.

Defender Chris Baird (personal reasons) is out of the clash.

Provisional squad: Schwarzer, Etheridge, Riise, Kelly, Hangeland, Hughes, Dembele, Briggs, Kasami, Davies, Murphy, Gecov, Etuhu, Ruiz, Dempsey, Frei, Johnson, Zamora, Sa.
