Fulham could include striker Gohi Cyriac in the squad following his deadline day loan move from KV Osstende.

Cottagers boss Slavisa Jokanovic moved to bring in the Ivory Coast international after seeing Matt Smith leave for rivals QPR.

Defensive midfielder Thanos Petsos was on the bench for the 2-0 win at Burton on Wednesday night and is pressing for a first start since signing on loan from Werder Bremen.

Togo forward Floyd Ayite came on for the closing stages as he returns to club action following the African Nations Cup.
