Fulham’s Lemina ‘touch and go’ for West Ham game

Mario Lemina is “touch and go” to face West Ham on Saturday evening, says Scott Parker.

The midfielder pulled up with a hamstring strain in the 2-0 Monday win over West Brom and didn’t reappear after half-time.

The Fulham head coach reckoned it was more precautionary than serious and is taking the next 24 hours to assess Lemina’s situation.

“We’ll see where we are nearer kick-off,” Parker said.

“He had a bit of a problem in the West Brom game and is touch and go for this one”.

Harrison Reed is almost certain to fill the breech at the London Stadium should the Whites err on the side of caution.

Terence Kongolo is out, but Neeskens Kebano is back and ready to throw his hat into the selection ring.

There are no other concerns as Parker revisits one of his former clubs hoping for back-to-back wins.
