Danny Murphy and Andy Johnson could face Blackburn on Wednesday after Fulham boss Roy Hodgson confirmed the duo have come through training 'totally unscathed'.

The Cottagers have been without midfielder Murphy for almost two months after their captain sustained a knee ligament problem.

Centre-forward Johnson has been missing for more than a month as a groin problem has kept the former Everton man on the sidelines.

But the pair have returned to full training and Hodgson is considering their selection as he prepares a side for Blackburn's arrival at Craven Cottage.

The Fulham boss, who wants to recover from a weekend defeat to Birmingham, said: "It's good to see them back in training.

"They have done two training sessions now and the good thing is that in both sessions, they have come through totally unscathed.

"Having them available this week isn't out of the question.

"The longer I can leave it for Danny and AJ, the better it is. Who knows when I have to throw them back in? But they are both in contention."
