In-form Fulham will check on Floyd Ayite ahead of the visit of Reading on Tuesday evening.

Winger Ayite came on as a substitute during the 1-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday but lasted just 10 minutes before going off injured.

Boss Slavisa Jokanovic has an otherwise fully-fit squad for the Craven Cottage clash, with Fulham looking to make it 20 games unbeaten and keep the pressure on second-placed Cardiff.

These sides last met at Craven Cottage in May 2017 in the first leg of the play-off semi-final, sharing a 1-1 draw.

In Championship meetings during the regular season, Slavisa Jokanovic's two home matches against Reading have ended in victory, winning 4-1 as Watford manager in March 2015 and 5-0 last season with Fulham.

Fulham's club record run of 19 league games unbeaten (W15 D4) is also the longest current run in English league football.

Reading can welcome back midfielder Dave Edwards from suspension. Edwards missed Saturday's 1-0 win over Preston after he was sent off against Aston Villa in midweek.

Defender Tyler Blackett will be assessed after he sat out at the weekend having picked up a knock against Villa. Saturday's victory left Paul Clement's side five points clear of the relegation zone.

In regular league meetings, the Royals have conceded nine goals in their last two away trips to Craven Cottage, losing 4-2 in October 2015 and 5-0 in December 2016.

The Royals have won two of their last three Championship games, after a run of just one win in 18 prior to that.

Sone Aluko - who played in the reverse fixture for Fulham but now plays for Reading - has scored one and assisted one in two previous league matches against the Cottagers.
