Kebano and Robinson back for Fulham

Fulham pair Neeskens Kebano and Antonee Robinson will be fit to face Blackburn on Saturday after missing last week’s win over Cardiff.

It’s another boost for Premier League-bound Fulham, and anyone interested in online gambling is aware they are now seen as certainties for promotion.

However, skipper Tom Cairney is unlikely to make the starting line-up having only returned to training earlier this week following illness.

Fulham thumped Blackburn 7-0 when the sides met earlier this season in what was Rovers’ heaviest-ever home defeat.

But that humiliating loss kick-started a 10-game unbeaten run that saw them win eight times to elevate themselves into the promotion race and last week’s 1-0 win over QPR saw them leapfrog Rangers into third place in the table.

Fulham boss Marco Silva said he was full of admiration for the manner in which Rovers bounced back from that chastening loss to his side and expects to face a team hungry for revenge.

“I thought it was fantastic they way they reacted and collected so many points,” Silva said.

“They really showed their character as a team as well. It is not easy to recover from a defeat like that at home.

“Their last few games they have had some up and downs, but what I saw from the last game against QPR where they clearly deserved the three points and it showed the quality and belief they had and are playing with a lot of energy.

“They will come here to match us and it is a good test for us. They are a very strong team on the counter-attack and the opposition makes mistakes they can punish them.

“Even without (Ben) Brereton (Diaz) they have enough quality in attack to cause problems and it is a game for us where we have to be fully focused.”
