Fulham boss Marco Silva has revealed that Harry Wilson could feature against Birmingham City tomorrow but that Fabio Carvalho is likely to be out until at least Saturday.
The west London club were handed their first defeat of the season away at Blackpool on Saturday and now travel to St Andrew’s to take on Birmingham City, who have made a strong start to the 2021/22 campaign under Lee Bowyer.
Both Carvalho and Wilson missed the 1-0 defeat to the Tangerines on the weekend, the former out due to an injury and the latter given a rest after featuring for Wales during the international break.
Speaking to club media, Silva revealed that the Welshman is set to return for tomorrow’s game against the Blues but Fulham are likely to be without the teenager that has starred for them in the first month or so of the season.
He said: “Harry’s okay. He’s making steps to play tomorrow.
“We still have doubts on Fab, it’s his foot. It looks difficult for him to be ready tomorrow, let’s hope we can have him next Saturday.”
Are each of these 18 celebrities a Fulham supporter or not?
The return of Wilson would be a real boost for Fulham, who will be looking to bounce back against Birmingham.
Their defeat to Blackpool will have taken them down a notch and they’ll be keen to get back to winning ways straight away, though that’s not going to be easy because Bowyer has his side playing well and with real belief and determination.
Adding Wilson, who has scored twice and added one assist in his three games since joining from Liverpool in the summer, will strengthen Silva’s attacking options significantly.
The absence of Carvalho is undoubtedly a blow but it’s good news the injury is not too serious and should see him return in time for the game against Reading on the weekend.
The 19-year-old has been in stunning form this term, scoring three times and providing one assist, and could prove a pivotal player in their promotion push.
