Fulham will assess captain Tom Cairney as his knee injury continues to be managed.

The midfielder missed two matches with the problem but returned as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at Bolton before starting the home win against Aston Villa on Saturday, playing the entire game.

Boss Slavisa Jokanovic has no other injury concerns but may make changes as he looks to extend Fulham's 10-match unbeaten run in the Championship.

The likes of Oliver Norwood, Lucas Piazon, Rui Fonte and Cyrus Christie could come into Jokanovic's thinking.

The Cottagers have won each of their last three away league visits to Bristol City since losing 5-1 in April 1990.

Fulham are unbeaten in their last 10 league games (W8 D2) - the current longest such run in the division.

As a manager of English clubs in all competitions, Slavisa Jokanovic has lost four matches against Lee Johnson - more than any against any other manager.

Bristol City will be without the suspended Marlon Pack when they host fellow Championship play-off hopefuls Fulham.

Pack received his 10th yellow card of the season during the 2-2 draw with Leeds on Sunday and must now serve a two-match ban.

Fellow midfielder Josh Brownhill was nursing a slight injury following the game at Elland Road but he trained on Tuesday and is expected to remain in contention.

Central defender Nathan Baker is available again after serving his three-match ban as City look for a first league win in four outings.

Bristol City have won four of their last five matches against Fulham in all competitions, losing the other at Ashton Gate last season (0-2).

The last nine goals Bristol City have conceded in the Championship have come in the 70th minute or later - costing them a total of six points.

They have let leads of 3-0 (home v Sunderland) and 2-0 (at Leeds) slip in the final 20 minutes in their last two games.

They have also lost by a 1-0 scoreline against Norwich (January 13) and at Bolton (February 2) thanks to goals conceded in the final 20 minutes, as well as conceding after 72 & 85 minutes of their 5-0 defeat at Aston Villa on New Year's Day.
