Johnson to finally return for Fulham
Fulham striker Andy Johnson will make his comeback in tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash with West Brom.
Johnson will make his first appearance since January after recovering from a combination of shoulder, knee and hip injuries.
The 29-year-old played in a development match against Southampton in midweek and manager Mark Hughes has revealed he is ready for the trip to the Hawthorns.
"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."
However, Fulham are suffering an injury crisis in midfield with Simon Davies (ankle), Danny Murphy (abductor strain), Dickson Etuhu (ankle) and Damien Duff (calf) out.
"We have four guys down in midfield so we're a little bit light in that department," added Hughes.
