Fulham are set to hand a debut to Chris Martin when they host Birmingham on Saturday.

The search for a striker to replace the departed Ross McCormack finally ended on deadline day when they landed Martin on loan from Derby.

Brazilian midfielder Lucas Piazon could also be added to the squad following his loan switch from Chelsea.

Iceland defender Ragnar Sigurdsson may make his first appearance for Fulham, who are unbeaten in the Championship.

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

Unbeaten in six league matches, Fulham have not had a longer unbeaten spell since the opening seven games of 2010-11 Premier League season.

Fulham have lost only one of their past six home league meetings with Blues, whose boss Gary Rowett was linked to Craven Cottage last season after his side's 5-2 away win.

Birmingham could be unchanged following their 3-0 win over Norwich before the international break.

Jack Storer remains suspended following the 18-year-old striker's red card in the defeat to Wolves last month.

Lukas Jutkiewicz is likely to be in the squad after the forward joined on loan from Burnley until January.

Fellow loan signing Rhoys Wiggins, who signed from Bournemouth, is not yet match fit and needs another week of training before being ready to play.

Blues have only lost one of their last nine Championship games, although six have ended in a stalemate.

Blues' win at Fulham last season was one of only two occasions since 2000 that they have hit five or more in an away league game (the other having also been in London, a 6-0 win at Millwall in 2012).
