Corry Evans is unlikely to feature for Blackburn against Fulham, even though he is in Northern Ireland's squad to face the Czech Republic next week.

The midfielder, who has once again been troubled by a groin injury, played only 14 minutes in pre-season but boss Owen Coyle is hopeful the international break will give him a chance to regain fitness.

New loan signing Martin Samuelsen could make his debut after joining from West Ham while Darragh Lenihan may return having missed the EFL Cup win over Crewe with a knock.

Elliott Ward (ankle), Elliott Bennett and Adam Henley (both hamstring) remain on the treatment table for Coyle's side.

Fulham could give a debut to Iceland defender Ragnar Sigurdsson, who scored and was man of the match in his country's Euro 2016 win over England.

Sigurdsson signed on Tuesday and did not feature in Wednesday's EFL Cup win over Middlesbrough.

Lasse Vigen Christensen celebrated his new contract with an extra-time winner in that game and could retain his starting place even as coach Slavisa Jokanovic reverses some of his nine changes.

Jokanovic also suggested at his pre-match press conference that a new striker is "in our building and very close to becoming part of our club".

Full-back Ryan Fredericks is still working his way back from an ankle injury.
