Marcus Olsson and Bradley Johnson are doubts for Derby ahead of their clash with Fulham.

Left-back Olsson twisted an ankle against QPR on Friday night, while midfielder Johnson injured his foot during the 1-0 victory at Pride Park Stadium.

If Olsson is ruled out, Max Lowe or Ikechi Anya could be recalled.

Another option for boss Gary Rowett would be to move Chris Baird to left-back and bring Cyrus Christie back into the team at right-back.

Either Will Hughes or Jacob Butterfield would fill in for Johnson in the middle of the park as Derby look for a win to move them to within five points of their opponents, who currently occupy the final play-off spot.

Derby have lost only one of their last seven league encounters with Fulham (W2 D4).

Gary Rowett has never lost a league match as a manager against Fulham (W2 D2).

Fulham will be without striker Chris Martin, who cannot play under the terms of his loan from Derby.

Scott Parker's back problem could keep the former England midfielder out again.

Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon is still on the road to recovery after breaking his jaw last month.

But boss Slavisa Jokanovic has no new injury worries ahead of the game.

No Championship team has taken more points in their last 10 matches than Fulham (21).

Fulham have only managed to win once in their last nine trips to Derby in league competition (D2 L6).
