Cottagers reveal Zamora doubts

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has admitted that Bobby Zamora is a major doubt for Thursday's Europa League semi-final second leg tie against Hamburg.

Zamora limped out of last week's goalless first leg in Germany after aggravating a long-running Achilles problem which has dogged him throughout the second half of the season.

The 19-goal striker missed Sunday's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Everton and is now facing a race against time to make the European game at Craven Cottage.

"I'm not confident Bobby will be ready for Thursday," said Hodgson.

"I am hopeful, but that is all. He is having treatment and we will have to keep our fingers crossed."
