Fulham could be unchanged as they attempt to climb into the top six at home to Blackburn.

The Cottagers moved to within two points of the play-off spots following Saturday's 3-1 win at leaders Newcastle.

Winger Floyd Ayite remains an injury doubt with the hamstring problem which has sidelined him for three weeks.

Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon hopes to be back in two or three weeks after breaking his jaw last month.

Fulham have won two of their last three league encounters with Blackburn, as many as they'd enjoyed in their previous 14.

Fulham are unbeaten in their last seven games in the Championship (W5 D2 L0) - only Ipswich are currently on a longer run without defeat (eight games - W1 D7 L0) in the competition.

Sone Aluko has had a hand in five goals in his last three league outings, scoring once and providing four assists.

Fulham last played Blackburn in August, MatchDay 5 of this season, and won 1-0 at Ewood Park with Tom Cairney scoring in the 94th minute.

Blackburn will have Craig Conway back but still have doubts over Charlie Mulgrew and Sam Gallagher.

Winger Conway missed the draw at Norwich on Saturday to attend the birth of his child and Tony Mowbray has confirmed he will travel to Craven Cottage.

Mulgrew and Gallagher were both absent against the Canaries due to slight hamstring problems and they will require further assessment.

Corry Evans (groin) remains out although he is close to a comeback having been back in full training for over a week.

Blackburn have won just once in their last five league visits to Craven Cottage, losing three (D1).

Danny Graham is Blackburn's top scorer in the league this season with 11 goals; however he hasn't found the net in any of his last eight games in the competition.
