Fulham vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Preview and TV schedule

Ian Walton

The post-Martin Jol era starts at Craven Cottage on Wednesday, with Fulham hosting Tottenham Hotspur.

After such a dreadful start to the season it was only a matter of time before Fulham lost patience with Martin Jol. Sadly their 3-0 defeat to West Ham on the weekend -- the Cottagers' sixth straight defeat in all competitions -- proved to be the final straw. Coach René Meulensteen takes charge of first team duties for the first time on Wednesday, with Fulham hosting Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs haven't been great this season, with their manager André Villas-Boas also starting to come under fire with his side winless in their last four league matches. However, they should still have enough to see off a side struggling in the bottom three, despite the motivational effect the introduction of a new manager may have on the hosts.

Fulham will be without the injured Hugo Rodallega and Matthew Briggs, while Dimitar Berbatov and Brede Hangeland are both in doubt. For Spurs, Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose are both unavailable, and could be joined on the sidelines by Emmanuel Adebayor.

Fulham injuries and suspensions

Out: Hugo Rodallega (groin), Matthew Briggs (hernia). In doubt: Dimitar Berbatov (illness), Brede Hangeland (leg).
