Fulham will have striker Cauley Woodrow available for the visit of Bristol City after his recovery from a broken foot.

Woodrow, who last featured in the FA Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on January 9, came through a run-out for the Under-21s against Arsenal in midweek.

Danish midfielder Lasse Christensen, though, is still a couple of weeks away from resuming training following a hamstring problem.

Cottagers boss Slavisa Jokanovic also confirmed he faces a late decision on defender Chris Baird and midfielder Alex Kacaniklic, who are both carrying knocks.

Bristol City will have Peter Odemwingie available after the 34-year-old completed a loan move from Stoke on Friday.

Odemwingie will spend the rest of the season with Lee Johnson's side as they battle against relegation.

Korey Smith, who missed the last three games with an ankle injury, will be assessed after having his protective boot removed.

Loan signing Adam Matthews will start again after playing 70 minutes on his debut at Wolves in midweek, his first senior appearance since playing for Sunderland in a Capital One Cup tie at the end of August.

Kieran Agard or Aaron Wilbraham will be promoted from the bench if Johnson decides to play an extra striker at Craven Cottage.
