Fulham boss Martin Jol is delighted with their scoring power.

The return of Mladen Petric and Bryan Ruiz provides the stiffest of competition for Dimitar Berbatov and Hugo Rodallega, who performed so assuredly in our last outing.

“It’s nice that we’ve got quality up front,” Jol told fulhamfc.com. “Any quality striker at any club will have an influence. It’s always nice to see Hugo, to see Dimitar and Petric – who’s back from injury – and they’ve each got different qualities.

“It was a big challenge for Hugo because Petric played [the first match] and did very well. I feel that Hugo stretched West Bromwich Albion - he was a handful and, of course, we’ve got different options with Petric or Rodallega so we have to make a decision on that.

“Bryan Ruiz came back from injury so that is the other option to play with a number 10 and Berbatov, or play with two strikers. That is the big decision we have to make so it’s either Bryan Ruiz or Hugo.

“I felt that Hugo was a bit unlucky not to score [against West Brom] as he had three or four shots on goal. He had a header that hit the bar before we scored with Steve Sidwell so he’s very eager to score and he’s eager to score against his former club.”
