Premier League

Zamora forced to miss training

Bobby Zamora could miss back-to-back Premier League games after giving his club an injury scare last night.

The striker sat out training with a knee problem and will be given a late fitness test ahead of today's match against Bolton Wanderers. Zamora was absent for last weekend's defeat to Swansea, but featured in the midweek draw against Odense when Fulham were knocked out of the Europa League. Manager Martin Jol said: "He's had it for the last four weeks – a niggling pain in his knee. But he played against Odense. I've got plenty of cover but it will be disappointing [if Zamora is not fit]. We have Andy Johnson, Bryan Ruiz, Moussa Dembele."
