Fulham v Aston Villa - Early Team-News

Fulham v Aston Villa - Early Team-News

After the fine 3-1 win away to Norwich, on Good Friday, Fulham will be looking to make it an Easter double when they welcome Aston Villa to Craven Cottage this afternoon.

With a promotion play-off the target, there is no room for error with so few games remaining.

Ahead of the big kick-off we gave gathered together some early team news.

Starting with Fulham:

The Cottagers will have to make do without their striker Chris Martin, the on-loan Derby County player received a straight red card in the 3-1 win against Norwich City, for an apparent elbow.

With two wins out of two with Marcus Bettinelli in goal, the young keeper is likely to keep his place between the posts with David Button confined to the bench.

Scott Parker remains raring to go after recovering from a back injury.

Continuing with our visitors Aston Villa:

Villa are able to select their January transfer window recruit from Brentford, Scott Hogan, after the player made a recovery from an ankle injury.

Jordan Amavi could start at full back after Neil Taylor picked up a groin injury recently.

Also likely to start, despite picking up a knock last time out, is Jonathan Kodjia.
