JUST IN : Crystal Palace confirm Roy Hodgson return against Fulham

Roy Hodgson will return to the Crystal Palace bench this weekend against Fulham after missing last Saturday’s game against Aston Villa due to illness.

The club revealed that the 76-year-old trained on Tuesday morning and will captain his team against his former club on Saturday afternoon at Selhurst Park.

Palace were defeated 3-1 at Villa Park, with Paddy McCarthy in charge and Ray Lewington assisting the former defender.

Odsonne Edouard started the scoring for the Eagles, but three late goals from Villa secured them all three points.

Hodgson, who was born in Croydon, has managed Fulham 129 times and led the club to the Europa League final in 2010, where they were defeated 2-1 by Atletico Madrid.
