Brian McBride is back in training at Fulham.

Cottager boss Roy Hodgson told "Brian has done extremely well to be back so early from the injury. He's worked very, very hard at it. It was good that he played 90 minutes on Wednesday and I thought the longer the game went on the happier he looked on the field.

"We mustn't overestimate the level of opposition. It was an extremely young Cardiff team and that game was nothing like a Premier League game but the really positive thing is that our captain, Brian, who is a really influential character and person, is well on the road to recovery. We're hoping that if he continues at this rate it won't be long before we see him in the First Team."
