Chris Martin returns to the Fulham squad for the visit of Ipswich.

The striker missed the midweek defeat at Derby, which saw the Cottagers drop out of the play-off spots, under the terms of his loan from the Rams.

Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon was a surprise inclusion at Pride Park after recovering from a broken jaw and he should be involved again.

Veteran midfielder Scott Parker remains a doubt with a back problem.

After losing four consecutive meetings with Ipswich, the Whites are unbeaten in two (W1 D1).

Chris Martin has scored in three of his last five appearances against the Tractor Boys in league competition, including in this season's reverse fixture.

Fulham have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight league games, which came against Rotherham.

Fulham last played Ipswich on Boxing Day when we beat them 2-0 at Portman Road With goals from Martin and Sigurdsson.

Ipswich should have leading scorer Tom Lawrence available.

The on-loan Leicester forward has not played since before the international break because of a groin problem.

Midfielder Cole Skuse also missed the midweek win over Wigan and is still not available after suffering a concussion during the game against Birmingham on Saturday.

Danish defender Jonas Knudsen suffered a shoulder problem in training which could sideline him for the remainder of the campaign, while centre-half Steven Taylor (hamstring) is also out.

Ipswich are unbeaten in their last six away games against Fulham in all competitions, winning the last two (D4).

Brett Pitman has netted four goals in five league games against Fulham.

Ipswich's 3-0 win over Wigan ended a run of eight games without a win, though seven of those were draws (L1).
