Fulham boss Chris Coleman is ready to wield the axe after Saturday's embarrassing defeat at Manchester City.
trikers Collins John and Heidar Helguson could be restored the starting XI after their recent demotion to the substitutes' bench, and Coleman admits he has a great deal to think about ahead of Saturday's visit of Reading.
He said: 'I will be thinking long and hard about the team because we need a performance.
'I will be keeping my cards close to my chest for a while yet but we do need to come out of the blocks and have a go at them.'
Coleman had taken off striker Brian McBride and midfielder Carlos Bocanegra at the end of the first half and John, who appeared in a double substitution with Icelander Helguson, had the ball in the net twice after the break, only to be flagged for offside both times before firing one that counted.
Coleman, who had recalled Senegal star Papa Bouba Diop for Tomasz Radzinski in the starting line-up, admitted: 'To be fair to Brian and Carlos I could have taken any of the players off at half time because they were all poor in the first 45 minutes.
'I still think the spirit in the camp is as good as ever but we missed an opportunity to get to the 20 points mark against Manchester City and we've got to make sure we make up for that against Reading.'
