Fulham are likely to be unchanged again for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday.

Boss Slavisa Jokanovic has a fully-fit squad with the Whites heading into the clash after back-to-back wins over Huddersfield and Brentford, scoring seven in the process without conceding.

Winger Floyd Ayite, recently back on the bench after a spell out injured, scored for Togo during the international break and should be involved again.

Defender Michael Madl made his debut for Austria while Tomas Kalas and Ragnar Sigurdsson are also back from international duty.

Fulham have won only one of their last nine league games against the Owls (D5 L3), a 4-0 victory in December 2014.

Fulham's Tom Cairney has created 15 goalscoring chances for Sone Aluko; the most by one player to another in the Championship.

Sheffield Wednesday striker Lucas Joao could return to contention after recently returning to full training.

Portuguese Joao has been sidelined since the end of August due to a groin injury, but could increase head coach Carlos Carvalhal's attacking options.

Carvalhal has no new injury or suspension problems as his side bids to bounce back from two straight league defeats.

Goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith is closing in on his return but is not ready for action following a finger injury and midfielder Marco Matias (hip), yet to feature this season, is still out.

Wednesday have won their last three games against the Whites in all competitions, which all came all last season - two wins in the league and one in the FA Cup.

The Owls have lost their last two league games; they've not suffered three consecutive defeats since May 2014.

Gary Hooper has been involved in four of Sheffield Wednesday's last five league goals (three goals, one assist).
