Fulham will still be without Lucas Piazon for the visit of Leeds on Tuesday night.

Piazon, who has scored five league goals this season, broke his jaw in Fulham's 2-2 draw at Cardiff last month.

Forward Floyd Ayite is also unlikely to be risked after missing the win over Preston on Saturday.

Fulham are five points off the play-off places having played one fewer match than sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday.

The last three league meetings between Fulham and Leeds have ended 1-1, with Fulham's Tom Cairney and United's Chris Wood netting two of their team's three goals in this run.

Tom Cairney has created more goalscoring chances than any other player in the Championship so far this season (90).

Fulham last played Leeds in August, MatchDay 3 of this season, and drew 1-1 at Elland Road. Leeds snached a point with an equaliser in the 93rd minute after former Leeds academy star Tom Cairney had put Fulham ahead in the 77th minute.

Leeds head coach Garry Monk has no new injury or suspension concerns as his side bid to maintain their promotion push.

Left-back Charlie Taylor is hoping to be back in the squad after being sidelined since December due to an Achilles injury.

Teenage midfielder Ronaldo Vieira is also in contention after he was left out altogether in Friday night's win at Birmingham.

Alfonso Pedraza, who scored his first goal for the club at St Andrew's, Kemar Roofe and Kalvin Phillips are also pushing for starts.

Leeds have won just one of their five Championship meetings with Fulham since the start of the 2014-15 campaign (D3 L1) - only against Brighton have they played a team as often while picking up fewer wins in this period (P5 W0).

Chris Wood has scored 11 goals in his last 11 Championship appearances for Leeds. He has found the net in 22 different competitive matches this season for the Whites.
