There is speculation this morning that Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer will be back between the sticks for the Europa League game with CSKA Sofia on Thursday.

That will be bad news for David Stockdale who did well in the game against Everton on Sunday, but Hodgson has said that he will be fielding strong teams in the competition that Fulham are taking very seriously.

Schwarzer missed the Everton clash with a neck injury picked up on international duty, but it looks like he will have recovered in time for Thursday’s game.
