Fulham assessing Ream and Kebano ahead of West Brom game

Marco Silva is unsure whether Tim Ream and Neeskens Kebano will be fit to face West Brom on Tuesday as Fulham look to consolidate their lead at the top of the table.

Ream was left with a deep gash above his left eye following a clash of heads late on in Saturday’s hard-fought 1-1 draw with Barnsley at Oakwell.

The American defender played out the remainder of the match but Silva said he will make a late decision on whether he is fit to face the Baggies, with Michael Hector potentially in line for a rare start.

Winger Kebano missed the Barnsley game with a hamstring injury and will be assessed before the squad make their way to the West Midlands.

“We had a session yesterday and will have another later today (Monday) and then we will decide,” Silva said.

“Tim came in yesterday to do recovery with the other players that started the game, Kebano did gym work.

“All of the other players are in normal condition apart from Anthony Knockaert, who is ill.”
