Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic is expected to make changes to his team when they host Charlton in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

They lost 3-0 at Blackburn on Tuesday, having previously won 3-1 at QPR, but Chris Baird has since rejoined the club on loan from Derby and is likely to start.

Dan Burn remains a doubt, owing to a hamstring injury, but could yet feature.

Jokanovic is, however, definitely without Cauley Woodrow, because of a broken metatarsal, and Lasse Christensen, who injured a hamstring at Blackburn.

Igor Vetokele and Jordan Cousins face late fitness tests before Charlton manager Jose Riga decides whether to include them in his squad.

Vetokele missed last weekend's draw against Cardiff with a hamstring injury and Cousins was taken off after 73 minutes with a knock.

Johnnie Jackson also went off injured against the Bluebirds and Riga said he will be out for "around two weeks".

New signings Marco Motta and Yun Suk-young are nearing first-team fitness and Riga is hopeful Alou Diarra (foot) and Patrick Bauer (groin) will be available in the next few weeks.
