Fulham have an almost fully-fit squad for the visit of Bolton.

Fulham will assess midfielder Stefan Johansen (groin) while captain Tom Cairney is pushing to make his first start since August after knee trouble.

Long-term absentees Sheyi Ojo and Lucas Piazon are stillunavailable to manager Slavisa Jokanovic.

On-loan Liverpool winger Ojo is still out following a dislocated shoulder and Chelsea loanee Piazon is recovering from a broken leg.

Jokanovic hopes to have the pair back in training by December.

Fulham have lost just once in their last 14 league clashes with Bolton (W8 D5 L1) - losing 1-3 in February 2015.

Stefan Johansen has been involved in five goals in his last seven league games (four goals, one assist).

Fulham have only kept one home Championship clean sheet in 2017, a joint-low of teams to play in the second tier in both last season and 2017/18 along with Burton.

Bolton have a worry over Reece Burke. The on-loan West Ham man has a hip injury and will face a late test.

Bolton boss Phil Parkinson has no other fresh injury concerns and is boosted by the return to fitness of Will Buckley, who has recovered from a calf complaint.

Wanderers have taken four points from their last two games but have taken just two points on the road so far this season.

Bolton haven't beaten Fulham at Craven Cottage in the league since November 1992, losing 11 of their 15 trips there since then (D4), failing to score more than a single goal in any of those matches (nine goals total).

Bolton have failed to score in seven of their last nine league games against Fulham.

Bolton, who've lost their last four away league games without scoring a goal, haven't lost five away games in a row without scoring since March 1989 (a run of six)
