Fulham will face Nottingham Forest on Sunday without midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah – and question marks are hanging over Fabio Carvalho, Harrison Reed and Joe Bryan.

Harrison Reed went off injured at halftime in Fulham's win over Cardiff, putting Tom Cairney in the frame to make his first start of the season.

Carvalho had his first training session this week after recovering from Covid-19 and a broken toe, as did Bryan following a clash with a post desperately trying to prevent QPR’s goal last weekend.

On Reed, boss Marco Silva said: “It’s nothing serious, but he’s not 100% fit. “We have one more training session, so we have to see how all three are.

“How long is Chalobah out? It’s difficult to say right now. We have to wait and see.”

Aleksandar Mitrovic is the Championship's top scorer this season with 13 goals in 13 appearances and netted in his last outing against Forest in August 2019.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Rodak; Odoi, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson; Seri, Cairney; Wilson, Reid, Kebano; Mitrovic

Lyle Taylor's two goals off the bench against Bristol City put him in a strong position to take Lewis Grabban's spot in Forest's starting XI.

Joe Lolley and Alex Mighten also made an impact as substitutes in midweek so will be pushing to start on Sunday.

Jordi Osei-Tutu, Loic Mbe Soh and Rodrigo Ely all remain sidelined through injury for the East Midlands side.

Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Samba; Worrall, Figueiredo, McKenna; Spence, Yates, Colback, Lowe; Johnson, Taylor, Lolley
