Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic will make changes for the Sky Bet Championship clash against Bristol City.

The Cottagers face Lee Johnson's side for the second time in four days following a dramatic 2-1 EFL Cup defeat at Craven Cottage.

Scott Parker, Kevin McDonald, Chris Martin and Matt Smith will return to the starting XI while Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon may keep his place in the side after scoring on Wednesday.

Floyd Ayite and Ryan Fredericks remain sidelined with ankle injuries.

Fulham have won three of their last four league games against Bristol City (L1), averaging two goals a game (eight goals scored).

Fulham's last three league goals have been scored in the 86th minute or later, with the last two coming in the 90th minute.

The Whites have only failed to score in one of their last 10 home league games (0-1 v Birmingham on 10 September).

Fulham and Bristol City last met on Wednesday evening when City knocked Fulham out of the League Cup when City ran out 2-1 winners after a last minute goal.

Bristol City will assess Joe Bryan (muscle) and Hordur Magnusson (toe) ahead of the match.

Midfielder Korey Smith, who has made only one appearance this season, will not be available after a recent injection.

Gustav Engvall made his debut in the cup match and could get another chance, although Johnson has arranged a behind-closed-doors friendly to give the likes of the Swede, Joel Ekstrand and Smith some game time.

On-loan Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is certain to the return to the starting line-up after coming off the bench to score his ninth goal of the season in midweek.
