Johnson is facing a race to be fit for Fulham’s crucial Europa League match against Roma on Thursday, as the former Crystal Palace man hopes to join Bobby Zamora up top for the Cottagers.

Johnson was being tipped for a possible return to action against Hull City at the Craven Cottage on Monday, but manager Roy Hodgson opted to play it safe and save Johnson for the big match against Roma.

“Andy came back earlier from the injury that he sustained against Akmar Perm than perhaps he should have done,” said Hodgson.

“He’s probably been carrying something in the shoulder that has caused a slight problem in his groin on the other side. We were confident on Wednesday last week he’d be fit to play. He’s not far away but he’s not 100 per cent.”

Johnson’s return would be a welcome sign for Fulham fans as the club looks to further their good form in Europe and improve upon their domestic form, which sees them lying 12th in the Premier League table.
