Bobby Zamora starts up front for Fulham tonight as they attempt to win through to the Europa League final against Hamburg at Craven Cottage.

The striker has been struggling with an Achilles injury but manager Roy Hodgson has decided to risk him, going with the lethal combination of Hungarian Zoltan Gera playing just behind him, which has proved so dangerous in Europe this season.

Zamora has scored eight goals in the competition so far this season, pushing his claims for a place in Fabio Capello's World Cup squad for South Africa.

Hodgson's men drew 0-0 in Hamburg a week ago, so any win would see them progress to the final, possibly against Liverpool.

Fulham: Schwarzer, Pantsil, Hangeland, Hughes, Konchesky, Davies, Murphy, Etuhu, Duff, Gera, Zamora. Subs: Zuberbuhler, Nevland, Riise, Dempsey, Smalling, Greening, Dikgacoi.
