Fulham Striker Andrew Johnson out for the rest of the season

According to the official Fulham website, the club is confirming that Andrew Johnson will not be available for the rest of the season. This statement was made after surgery for Johnson was performed by Dr. Richard Steadman. The release from also states they expect Johnson to be available for the latter part of preseason training. This training is in preparation for next season.

This is a blow to Fulham as it leaves them short a striker for the rest of the season. At the end of the transfer window Fulham let Diomansy Kamara go out on loan to Celtic. It will be interesting to see how Roy Hogdson fills the void of Andrew Johnson.

Going into the Bolton game tomorrow Mr. Hogdson has few choices at striker. Recently brought in Stefano Okaka could be an option up front. He did start in the last game against Portsmouth. Erik Nevland or David Elm could be additional options for Hogdson tomorrow. Bobby Zamora should be available to go. It is obvious though he is struggling a little coming back from injury.

Moving forward for the rest of the season I think the striker position is still up in the air. I am hopeful that Roy will figure out a combination that works from week to week for Fulham.
