Marco Silva has few concerns to deal with, though Andre-Frank Anguissa was left out of Fulham's squad against Middlesbrough due to his desire to leave and will not be involved.

The former Marseille midfielder is subject to interest from clubs across Europe and is not willing to play in the Championship.

It is expected that Silva will consider bringing in Bobby Decordova-Reid from the start, though, as the Jamaica international - who recently played in the Gold Cup for the Reggae Boyz - could provide support for star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Both Tom Cairney and Harrison Reed remain unavailable due to injuries.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Gazzaniga; Tete, Ream, Adarabioyo, Robinson; Reed, Onomah; Cordova-Reid, Carvalho, Wilson; Mitrovic

Huddersfield remain embroiled in uncertainty ahead of the game, as Lewis O'Brien, Lee Nicholls, Harry Toffolo and Josh Ruffels were all ruled out of the draw with Derby as they entered quarantine.

The quartet's return depends on providing a negative COVID-19 test and subsequently proving their fitness, so the hosts are unlikely to field their strongest XI.

Town handed Championship debuts to defenders Ollie Turton and Levi Colwill at Pride Park - and the pair could start again - while former Boreham Wood winger Sorba Thomas has impressed so far and should feature. Goalkeeper Ryan Schofield will start in the probable absence of Nicholls.

Huddersfield Town possible starting lineup:
Schofield; Sarr, Pearson, Colwill; Turton, High, Hogg, Holmes, Thomas; Ward, Rhodes
