Aboubakar Kamara is pushing to start for Fulham when they host Ipswich on Tuesday.

The Frenchman came off the bench to score twice as Fulham fought back from behind to snatch a 2-2 draw at Hull on Saturday.

On-loan Chelsea winger Lucas Piazon is also in contention after two substitute appearances since recovering from a broken leg.

Boss Slavisa Jokanovic has no new injury concerns.

Fulham have won their last three Championship meetings with Ipswich, winning 2-0 at Portman Road earlier this campaign.

Fulham have only conceded one goal in their last three home league games (W3) - keeping two clean sheets - having gone 18 matches without one prior to this run.

The Cottagers have lost six of their last nine league matches played in January (W1 D2).

Ipswich will check on central defender Adam Webster, who suffered an Achilles injury during Saturday's home defeat by Derby.

Midfielder Cole Skuse could be back from an ankle problem, but defender Tristan Nydam has been struggling with hip and groin problems so remains doubtful.

Flynn Downes (calf) and fellow midfielder Tom Adeyemi (hamstring) are also continuing their rehabilitation, along with Teddy Bishop (hamstring).

Wales midfielder Emyr Huws has been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery, while Luke Hyam and Andre Dozzell are also unavailable following knee operations.

Since losing 10-1 at Craven Cottage on Boxing Day 1963, Ipswich have lost only once in five league visits (W2 D2), though that defeat came last season.

Ipswich have lost eight of their last 11 away matches in all competitions (W2 D1).

The Tractor Boys, however, have picked up one win in their last 26 away matches played in January in all competitions, a 3-1 win at Millwall in 2015.
