Fulham forward Floyd Ayite, who was forced off during their 5-4 win at Sheffield United on Tuesday, is out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury.

Sheyi Ojo could return to the Fulham squad for the visit of Millwall.

The on-loan Liverpool winger is back in training having been out since dislocating a shoulder against QPR in September.

Stefan Johansen is fit after illness and Neeskens Kebano has recovered from a hip problem.

Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon is still recovering from a broken leg.

Fulham haven't beaten Millwall in a second-tier match since September 1978, although they have only faced one another five times at this level since then (D3 L2).

In midweek, Ryan Sessegnon became the first 17-year old to score a hat-trick within the top four tiers of English league football since Dele Alli in March 2014 (Notts County 1-3 MK Dons in League One).

Fulham ended a run of six Championship matches without a win (D3 L3) clinching a dramatic 5-4 away victory at Bramall Lane against the Blades last time out.

Millwall remain without the suspended Jed Wallace, who serves the last match of his ban.

Steve Morrison and Fred Onyedinma are pushing for starts having appeared in Tuesday's 0-0 draw at home to Hull as substitutes.

Tom Elliot started over Morison, but struggled to impress. Shaun Williams and Byron Webster, meanwhile, are long-term absentees.

The Lions are still looking for their first away win of the Championship season, while Fulham have only won one of their nine league games at Craven Cottage in 2017-18.

Millwall's last defeat at Craven Cottage came in April 1999, losing 4-1 - current manager Neil Harris played for The Lions that day.

Millwall are still searching for their first victory in five league matches (D3 L2) - they last went on a longer winless run within a single Championship season back in March 2015 (nine games).

Millwall have made fewer changes to their starting XI than any other team in the Championship this term (21).
