Fulham boss Hodgson forced into changes for Perm test

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has a host of injury concerns ahead of tonight’s Europa League play-off second leg away to Amkar Perm.

The Cottagers, already without Andy Johnson, will also be missing Danny Murphy, Bobby Zamora and Paul Konchesky as they seek to defend a 3-1 first-leg lead.

“Our tactics won't differ from the tactics from the first match. Obviously we would also like to score a goal here,” he said.

“I will have to make some changes to the team and will think about that overnight before making a final decision.

“They (Amkar) have good chances. I think at 3-0 it would have been much easier for us but the late goal by (Viktor) Grishin has given Amkar a good chance and a 2-0 victory would put them through on away goals.”
