Fulham will be without suspended midfielder Kevin McDonald when Derby visit Craven Cottage.

The midfielder, one of Fulham's stand-out performers this season, serves a one-match ban after collecting five bookings.

Long-term absentees Lucas Piazon and Sheyi Ojo remain on the sidelines.

On-loan Liverpool winger Ojo is still out following a dislocated shoulder and Chelsea loanee Piazon is recovering from a broken leg.

Fulham are unbeaten in their last seven home league matches against the Rams, although five have been draws (W2).

Fulham have had scorers of 10 different nationalities in the Championship this season, more than any other side.

Aboubakar Kamara has only had 16 shots in the Championship this season - only two shots have been on target, but he's scored with both of those shots.

Derby boss Gary Rowett has a number of calls to make, with a series of first-teamers working reduced training schedules this week.

Skipper Richard Keogh has been struggling with a thigh injury but trained with the squad again on Thursday, joined by Bradley Johnson (rib).

Johnny Russell skipped that session but is likely to be available, as are Joe Ledley (hamstring) and Matej Vydra (calf). Jason Shackell will play no part as he recovers from calf trouble.

Brian Clough was in charge of Derby the last time they won at Craven Cottage in a league match, winning 1-0 in April 1969.

Gary Rowett has never lost against Fulham during his managerial career (W3 D3), although one of those draws was in the League Cup when his Burton were eliminated on penalties in August 2013.

Six of Derby's last seven league goals have been scored after the 70th minute, including each of the last five.
