Fulham forward is major doubt for QPR derby clash - Fulham FC - Fulham Chronicle
BRYAN Ruiz is a serious Fulham doubt for the derby clash against QPR on Monday after picking up a hamstring injury during international week.
Martin Jol reckons he will give his forward (pic) every chance to recover with an assessment due tomorrow (Sunday) – but the manager sounded none too confident.
He said: “Bryan played two games – one in unbelievable snow and one in 30 degrees of heat.
“His hamstring is a bit of a problem, and we may have to come up with a solution for a different forward line.”
This is going to be a problem for Fulham, and for Dimitar Berbatov's fantasy owners. The Bulgarian has returned to form as he's been returned to the tip of Fulham's attack. Without Ruiz behind him, he's not as effective. In fact, he'll likely be the player to drop deeper, with Hugo Rodallega or Mladen Petric playing as the number 9.
