Fulham manager Martin Jol still wants two more signings this summer with a back up striker for Bobby Zamora top of his wish list.

The Cottagers boss will take charge of his first Premier League match tomorrow in four years against Aston Villa following his sacking from Tottenham.

He has brought in John Arne Riise and little-known midfield duo Marcel Gecov and Pajtim Kasami this summer but still wants more additions to his squad.

A string of injuries could leave his squad vulnerable given the demands of playing in the Europa League and fighting on the domestic front.

Jol feels his squad lacks a target man to fill in for Zamora when he is not fit, but admits bringing in a quality striker will be difficult.

A bid for Birmingham City striker Cameron Jerome was rejected but Jol has not given up hope yet.

“I’m happy with the squad we have got, if they are fit,” Jol said.

“That is probably not realistic though so that’s why we are looking for one or two additions.

“It will be hard to find someone like him (Zamora). If Bobby is injured, we lack a number nine. On the other hand, Clint (Dempsey) can play that position.”

Jol had worried that this weekend’s clash in London would be called off due to the unrest in the capital.

With the game now being given the go-ahead, Jol is relishing his Premier League return after playing Europa League qualifiers.

“We are very happy that the game is on,” Jol added. “The main thing was that we wanted to play football.

“I don’t see there is a lot of difference in playing friendlies (or playing in the Europa League qualifiers). It wasn’t as if we were playing Inter Milan or Ajax. It was Crusaders and Split.

“Hopefully it will have given us enough preparation for the season.”
