Fulham boss Mark Hughes has revealed that Andy Johnson will return to the squad this weekend against West Brom.
Johnson, who has struggled with shoulder, knee and hip injuries in recent times, has been sidelined since January.
Hughes has confirmed the striker's availability following a solid 90 minutes in a development match against Southampton, however he remains unsure of whether to play him from the start.
"Andy should be OK. He came through 90 minutes and we're pleased with that," said Hughes.
"It was the good challenge that he needed to clear his mind. He's available for selection.
"We'll look at the option of starting Andy. It would be more advisable to introduce him slowly and see how he goes."
