Fulham's Mitroglou still on the mend

Fulham's prized winter signing Kostas Mitroglou will not be ready to make his Premier League debut tomorrow night.

The Greece international joined the Cottagers for £11million from Olympiakos in deadline day but brought with him to London a knee injury which has kept him on the sidelines since his arrival.

Fulham meet Liverpool at Craven Cottage on Wednesda but still Mitroglou will not be right to step out for the first time in England.

"We're still working very hard to get him up to speed for the Premier League," manager Rene Meulensteen said.

"It's important for us that we time that right, for us and for him.

"He's working hard, he's progressing every day, and that's how we assess him. Wednesday will be too early for him."
