Scott Parker provides Josh Maja update

Fulham’s last outing before Burnley saw them earn a huge win over Europe-chasing Everton.

Josh Maja, on loan from Bordeaux, netted twice in the tie, to earn his new club a potentially crucial three points.

As a result, Fulham fans will no doubt be desperate for their new hitman to start again on Wednesday.

However, speaking pre-Burnley, Scott Parker confirmed that Maja picked up a calf issue vs the Toffees, which eventually resulted in his exit from proceedings.

Parker was therefore asked if Maja’s match load may need to be managed, to which he responded:

“Maybe that will be the case.”

“He didn’t play a lot (before signing). He was stretching his calf which is why we brought him off. We may have to manage him. He seems very fit. Condition-wise, credit to him, that’s the work he must have done despite not playing. It is something we will need to keep an eye on.”
