Steve Clarke is confident that both Romelu Lukaku and Steven Reid will be fit to face Fulham, but the news isn’t so good for Jerome Thomas.

Speaking to wba.co.uk as we prepare for our next Premiership clash, Clarke said he believes Lukaku will be fine following his ankle knock as he turned out for Belgium in a 45 minute stint last Friday, and it’s expected he will again play a part in the Crotia game.

Steven Reid is making good progress with the tight hamstring he suffered against Everton.

‘Romelu’s injury was the result of a tackle, and, to be honest, it was probably a 10 day injury. He just ran out of time to play against Everton. We’re hopeful, but not expectant, on Steven Reid.’

The news isn’t as good for Jerome Thomas who is again set to miss the Fulham game with niggles.

‘Jerome won’t be fit this weekend, he’s been in and out and has picked up lots of little niggles. He’s working as hard as he can to get back, it’s disappointing we haven’t had the chance to get him outside more often.’
