Back-up Neil Etheridge suffered an injury
Wednesday 19 December 2012
Fulham have recalled goalkeeper David Stockdale from a loan spell at Hull after Neil Etheridge suffered an injury.
With Mark Schwarzer the regular number one at Craven Cottage, Stockdale was last month allowed to join the npower Championship promotion hopefuls.
The 27-year-old impressed in his short time with the Tigers but is now heading back to the Fulham ranks.
"The club can confirm that goalkeeper David Stockdale has been recalled from his loan spell at Hull City with immediate effect and will resume training with Fulham from Thursday 20th December," a statement on Fulham's official website, http://www.fulhamfc.com, said.
"Stockdale made five appearance for the Tigers, helping them to earn 10 points and two clean sheets in the process."
Stockdale goes into the squad for Saturday's trip to Liverpool, while an update on 22-year-old Etheridge's injury will be given by manager Martin Jol at tomorrow's pre-match press conference.
Etheridge is believed to have sustained a leg injury on Monday, playing for Fulham's under-21 team against their Manchester City counterparts.
