Andrew Johnson is one of several players ruled out of Fulham’s Premier League clash against Sunderland.

The striker missed recent trips to Everton and Liverpool with an adductor injury and will not recover in time to feature on Sunday.

Johnson will be joined on the sidelines by midfielders Simon Davies (hip), Steve Sidwell (hernia) and Bryan Ruiz (foot), while defender Zdenek Grygera (knee) remains out.

Sunderland defender John O’Shea and striker Nicklas Bendtner are fighting to be fit.

Both men picked up foot injuries in training this week, but manager Martin O’Neill is hopeful they will make the game at Craven Cottage.

Midfielder Craig Gardner is available after serving a one-match ban and defender Titus Bramble (Achilles) is back in training but short of fitness, but full-back Kieran Richardson and midfielder Sebastian Larsson (both hernia surgery) are out for the remainder of the season.

Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Stockdale, Kelly, Riise, Hangeland, Hughes, Baird, Briggs, Senderos, Murphy, Duff, Dempsey, Kacaniklic, Kasami, Etuhu, Frei, Pogrebnyak, Dembele, Sa.

Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Gordon, Bardsley, Bridge, Turner, O’Shea, Kilgallon, Kyrgiakos, Lynch, McClean, Vaughan, Cattermole, Gardner, Meyler, Colback, Sessegnon, Bendtner, Ji, Campbell.
