Fulham to assess Duff injury

Fulham will assess Damien Duff’s condition on Friday after the wide-man suffered a recurrence of a calf injury against FC Twente.

Duff, who missed Saturday’s draw against Arsenal with the same problem, was taken off during the first half of the Whites’ Europa League defeat.

The Republic of Ireland international looks certain to miss Monday’s Premier League game against Liverpool, but Moussa Dembele is expected to be available.

Dembele limped off after picking up a knock in Enschede but the problem is not thought to be serious.

Jol could be without Duff next week

Twente’s late winner means Fulham need a victory rather than a draw in their final group match to ensure they go through to the knockout stage.

“We are normally very good at defending crosses,” said Fulham manager Martin Jol.

“We did well defensively, stopping their crosses, but somebody slipped and then we speculated on the offside.

“Twente are a good team and score goals. It would have been only the second time in about 42 games that they hadn’t scored.”
