Fulham forward Ross McCormack is rated as a major doubt to lead Fulham's attack on Saturday afternoon after suffering from illness ahead of Hull City's visit.

McCormack, who has been linked with a £10m move to Middlesbrough this month, would be a huge miss after scoring 15 Championship goals this season.

Slavisa Jokanovic has no other injury concerns as he bids to find his first victory as Fulham boss. The 47-year-old, who guided Watford to promotion last season, is yet to taste the winning feeling since returning to English football at the end of last month, and McCormack's likely absence will leave the door open for Moussa Dembele to return.
The striker has been the subject of speculation linking him with a move from Craven Cottage and was named on the bench for the 1-1 draw with Huddersfield last weekend.
Midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe is out following hamstring surgery and he was joined on the sidelines last week by striker Cauley Woodrow, who broke his foot in the FA Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday. Keeper Marcus Bettinelli has not played since suffering knee ligament damage at the KC in August.

Hull boss Steve Bruce could be boosted by the return to contention of his son Alex following injury.

Defender Bruce has been sidelined since early December due to a back problem but has trained with the first-team squad this week.

Fellow defender Michael Dawson remains sidelined with the knee injury that has kept him out since mid-November and striker Adama Diomande is still struggling with a groin problem.

Bruce has no new injury or suspension worries following last week's 6-0 thrashing of Charlton as his side chase a fifth straight win in all competitions.
