Fulham boss Martin Jol will decide shortly whether to send defender Matthew Briggs out on loan for the season. Jold says he has been impressed with the 21 year old in pre-season and will weigh up what to do in the coming weeks.

He told the Fulham Chronicle: "Matty needs games but I need cover as well. In pre-season he's looked very good, so we will have to think about that in the next couple of weeks."
