Christensen injury frustrates Fulham boss

Fulham midfielder Lasse Vigen Christensen will need to be managed back to full fitness slowly, according to manager Kit Symons.

The Dane aggravated a hamstring injury in last Saturday’s goalless draw with Wolves, lasting only 32 minutes on his return before limping off.

Christensen had been declared fit after just one day of full training but Symons said this time he will ensure the in-form midfielder is up to speed before throwing him back in.

The Whites boss said: “Lasse Christensen is a bit of a frustrating one.

“It’s not too bad, it’s very similar to what he did against Bournemouth.

“It’s certainly a less serious one but we’ll make sure we get him right and build him up slowly and make sure he’s going to be right to come back in.”

While Christensen will miss Saturday’s trip to Cardiff, Fulham’s midfield numbers are swelled by the return of Alex Kacankilic and Ryan Tunnicliffe, who have been recalled from loan spells.

Kacaniklic played 45 minutes of a behind-closed-doors friendly win over Portsmouth on Tuesday.
