Fulham hope to call on their leading goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic in the Championship play-off final against west London rivals Brentford.

A hamstring issue kept the Serb out of the semi-final against Cardiff, which Fulham won 3-2 on aggregate despite a 2-1 second-leg home loss.

However, boss Scott Parker has faith that the 26-goal frontman can feature at Wembley on Tuesday (19:45 BST).

"He was close on Thursday, but wasn't quite ready," Parker said.

"He was probably the loudest voice I could hear up in the stands, roaring the players on and that's what it was all about in the second half - just getting behind each other.

"[Aleksandar] would've been a massive risk for us, so we hope he will be OK for Tuesday."

Neeskens Kebano, who scored in both legs of the semi-final, is another doubt with a hamstring strain but Parker is also hopeful the DR Congo midfielder can overcome his niggle to feature.
