Fulham will check on the fitness of midfielder Tom Cairney. The Cottagers captain sat out victories over Barnsley and Nottingham Forest with a knee problem.

But Cairney returned to full training on Thursday and suffered no ill-effects, so he could be back in the side. January signing Aleksandar Mitrovic is pushing for a full debut after coming off the bench against Forest.

Boss Slavisa Jokanovic has no other injury worries as the Londoners chase a sixth successive league victory.

The Cottagers have kept clean sheets in seven of their last 10 league games against the Trotters.

Fulham have collected more points across their last 10 league matches (25 - W8 D1 L1) than any other Championship side.

Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon has had a hand in nine goals in his last seven league matches (seven goals, two assists).

Bolton manager Phil Parkinson will be looking to register back-to-back clean sheets for only the second time this season against free-scoring Fulham.

A new-look back three of Dorian Dervite, David Wheater and Mark Beevers performed well in the 1-0 home win over Bristol City last time out.

Parkinson also has on-loan West Ham defender Reece Burke as an option as he tries to figure out how to stop Fulham finding the net.

On-loan Zach Clough will be pushing for a start and Jon Flanagan, who joined from Liverpool in January, will hope to figure after being an unused substitute against Bristol City. Darren Pratley is sidelined by a broken leg.

Bolton have picked up one victory in their last seven home league matches against Fulham (D4 L2) - a 3-1 win in February 2015.

Bolton have had only two different nationalities score for them in the Championship this season, while opponents Fulham have had 11, more than anyone else.

The Trotters have collected just one point in the 15 Championship matches when they've conceded the first goal this season (W0 D1 L14).
