Zamora and Duff boost prospects of being fit to face Atletico

Fulham have been handed a boost after Bobby Zamora and Damien Duff took part in training ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final. Zamora has not played for the Cottagers since aggravating a long-standing Achilles problem in the second leg of the semi-final win over Hamburg last month. Duff, meanwhile, sat out Sunday's 4-0 defeat at Arsenal after he suffered a recurrence of a calf problem in last week's game against Stoke City. However, both players trained on Monday and will be out to prove their fitness to manager Roy Hodgson ahead of the final with Atletico Madrid in Hamburg. Hodgson is also monitoring the fitness of John Pantsil and Bjorn Helge Riise, who were both substituted with knocks during the Premier League loss at Emirates Stadium. Speaking after the game, Hodgson confirmed Pantsil had picked up a thigh complaint and Riise was struggling with a stomach problem. Hodgson said on Sunday: "Pantsil has felt a slight problem in his thigh, but we do not think it is massive. "It might be a slight muscle strain, but the physios did not seem to be terribly disturbed. We will have to reassess him. "Riise was suffering from stomach cramps at half-time. That could be worse. He has had to go home, and we hope it is not a viral infection."
