Fulham host Swansea City at Craven Cottage this weekend as both sides attempt to push up the Premier League table.

Fulham and Swansea City face off at the weekend level on points in the middle of the Premier League table.

Both the Cottagers and the Swans will have eighth place in their sights as they go head to head at Craven Cottage.

Martin Jol has no fresh injury worries heading into the fixture, so the likes of Pavel Pogrebnyak and Andy Johnson could start for the London side, while Moussa Dembele should also get a spot in the starting lineup.

Brendan Rodgers is without Nathan Dyer, who continues to serve a three-match ban, leaving Wayne Routledge to occupy the wing.

Current form:

Fulham: DLWWWL
Swansea: DWLLWW

Possible lineups:

Fulham: Schwarzer; Kelly, Hangeland, Senderos, JA Riise; Duff, Murphy, Dempsey, Dembele; Johnson, Pogrebnyak

Swansea: Vorm; Williams, Caulker, Taylor, Rangel; Routledge, Allen, Britton, Sigurdsson; Graham, Sinclair

Sports Mole says: 1-1
