Steve Sidwell is hoping a full week's training will be enough for him to be fit for Fulham's Barclays Premier League game against Blackpool on Sunday week.

January signing Sidwell has not played for more than a month after suffering a knee injury but is back in light training and is set to return to full contact on Monday.

The midfielder, 28, said on his club's official website, "We've got Blackpool coming up the weekend after next so I've had a bit of training this week, then I'll be in full training on Monday. I can get a week's full training in before the game. It's been a frustrating four weeks for me but I needed that time to recover."

He added of his injury: "I twisted in a funny way during our training camp in Portugal.

"It's just one of those freak things that happens but, luckily, it wasn't too serious.

"The medical team here have been brilliant, the rehab has been superb and they got me back fit as soon as they could.

"I feel good now, I'm just picking up my fitness. But I wanted to come back this week so I could get a full week done next week."
