Squad sheets: Fulham v Birmingham City
5 years ago

Having washed his hands of one set of interventionist owners Mark Hughes insists the Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed had every right to dress down his players after their 4-1 defeat by, funnily enough, Manchester City. Hughes's side have slid down the table and are without three first-choice strikers, with Andy Johnson the latest to break down. Birmingham frequently disappoint on their travels but after taking four points off Chelsea and Manchester City they will be hopeful of recording their first away win of the season. James Callow
