manager Tony Adams' selectionproblems for tomorrow's vital Barclays Premier League clash with Fulham
at Craven Cottage.
The Algerian, sent off against Aston Villa in midweek, joins injured midfielders Niko Kranjcar (groin), Papa Bouba Diop (knee), Richard Hughes (hamstring) and Marc Wilson (hip) on the sidelines.
Captain Sol Campbell (hip) also remains a big doubt but will be given time to prove his fitness after being forced to miss the second half on Tuesday.

Adams is set to recall Armand Traore and Younes Kaboul but is likely to stick with a 4-4-2 formation because of his midfield shortages.
Veteran striker Kanu, who made his first league start of the season in midweek,could be replaced by either David Nugent or John Utaka to support Peter Crouch up front.
Team (from): James, Johnson, Campbell, Kaboul, Distin, Hreidarsson, Pennant, Mullins, Davis, A Traore, Utaka, Crouch, Kanu, Nugent, Mvuemba, Cranie, Pamarot, Little, Lauren, Begovic.
