Aleksandar Mitrovic will miss Fulham's game with Middlesbrough on Friday as the Whites look for a win that will take them third in the Championship.

The Serbia striker injured his ankle in Saturday's win at Hull and is likely to be out for two or three weeks.

As well as Mitrovic, Fulham will be unable to call upon midfielder Harrison Reed (calf), forward Aboubakar Kamara, who has an ankle injury, and defender Steven Sessegnon who remains doubtful with a groin problem he picked up at the end of last month.

The west London club have won two of their past three games and are fourth in the table, seven points behind second-placed Leeds United.

Manager Scott Parker has added goalkeeper Jordan Archer to his roster, with the Scotland international likely to be pushing for a place on the bench as cover for Marek Rodak.

Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate goes into the game without a number of key players through injury.

Woodgate confirmed this week that striker Britt Assombalonga suffered a setback in training in his bid to return from an ankle issue that has kept him out since early December.

Woodgate has also revealed defender Daniel Ayala will miss another four weeks with an ankle problem sustained in the New Year's Day win at Preston.

Boro are also without three other defenders in Ryan Shotton, Anfernee Dijksteel (both knee) and George Friend (ankle).
