Cottage pair set for Latics return
Bryan Ruiz and Mladen Petric are set to boost Fulham by returning for Saturday's Premier League trip to Wigan.
The duo both missed last weekend's 3-0 home win against West Brom because of respective injury problems, but have recovered sufficiently to be considered by boss Martin Jol for the game at the DW Stadium.
However, Simon Davies is absent, Kieran Richardson will miss out with a hip problem, Ashkan Dejagah is not yet match fit, Mahamadou Diarra has a knee injury, while Kerim Frei and Philippe Senderos are still out because of long-term pelvis and foot problems.
Aaron Hughes is looking forward to the game and expects an attractive football match against a Latics side that have not defeated the Cottagers in six years of Premier League games.
He told the club's website: "We both play good football and obviously Roberto Martinez is big on how he plays - getting the ball down and knocking it around.
"They have a nice style about them and I guess that's what we're known for as well so it should be a good football match. I think it will be a close one too and we'll be hoping we can get something from the game."
