Jimmy Bullard believes he will fulfil Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez´s prediction of being back in action by October.

But the midfielder, who dislocated a kneecap and suffered extensive cruciate ligament damage a year ago, admits he will not be back to full fitness until Christmas.

He said: "October still looks about right for me to be playing again but I will need a of training and a lot of reserve games to build up match-fitness for the first team."
