Lasse Vigen Christensen could miss out for Fulham after suffering a hamstring injury.

The 21-year-old limped out of the opening stages of Fulham's 3-1 league win over QPR at the weekend, and is now a doubt for the trip north.

After an injury-hit season last term, Fulham's coaches will hope the Denmark Under-21 star can quickly put his latest setback behind him.

Luke Garbutt slotted in as Fulham tweaked their formation in response to Christensen's injury against QPR, and he could be asked to step in again.
