Fulham have goalkeeper Marek Rodak back from his one-game ban for his red card in the goalless draw at Middlesbrough for the visit to Birmingham.

Marcus Bettinelli came in for last weekend's 3-0 home defeat by Hull City.

Full-back Joe Bryan is not expected to feature having been forced off early on against Hull following an awkward fall, while midfielder Harry Arter continues to be assessed after missing the past three matches with an unspecified injury.

Birmingham City are without captain Harlee Dean as he starts his three-match ban for his red card in the 4-2 defeat at Cardiff.

New striker Jeremie Bela, who left Spanish side Albacete to join Blues, has received international clearance but has not played since June.
