Fulham captain Luis Boa Morte has confirmed he is nearing a return to full fitness.
The 29-year-old fractured his cheekbone during September's game against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Boa Morte has featured in Fulham's last two Premiership outings but by his own admission has been lacking match fitness.
However, the Portuguese winger expects his condition to improve over the next few weeks with more games under his belt.
"I'm not as fit as I would like to be but I'm getting there," Boa Morte told the club's official website.
"I was training one on one during the five weeks I was out and that's not the same as training with the rest of the team.
"I'm not going to be 100 percent match fit but I've now been training with the team for two weeks so I expect the fitness to come over the next few weeks."
