Fulham will be looking to pick up from where they left off before the international break this weekend as Championship action returns to Craven Cottage with Barnsley the visitors.

Marco Silva should be able to name a strong side for this one

Tosin Adarabioyo serves the last match of his three-game ban this weekend so Michael Hector could be in the heart of the defence alongside Tim Ream.

Denis Odoi is also suspended, with him collecting his fifth yellow card of the season last time out against Peterborough United.

The timing isn’t too bad, though, as we saw Kenny Tete return to the field against the Posh and he should come into the side at right-back.

Further forwards, Marco Silva again has calls to make with his superb midfield options but it does seem Jean Michael Seri and Harrison Reed are proving fairly hard to budge.

And then, up top, the attacking quartet rather picks itself at the moment with them on fire and Aleksandar Mitrovic continued his form in the international break, pleasingly for Fulham.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Rodak; Tete, Hector, Ream, Robinson; Seri, Reed; Wilson, Decordova-Reid, Kebano; Mitrovic

Barnsley are facing a crucial clash against automatic promotion-chasing Fulham as they aim to secure a positive result in front of their new manager Poya Ashbaghi in Joseph Laumann’s last game in charge.

Laumann is likey to want to stick with the 3-4-3 or 3-4-2-1 formation that the Tykes have been used to playing during his caretaker spell in charge of the club.

In goal, Bradley Collins is likely to start with him having been an ever-present in their opening 17 matches of the season. He will be aiming to make sure he impresses the new manager and continues to be relied upon between the sticks.

Barnsley have some issues to contend with at the heart of their defence, with Aapo Halme still unavailable and Liam Kitching looking likely to miss out of the game through injury as well.

That means Laumann could go with a back three of Jasper Moon, Mads Juel Andersen and Michael Helik for the Tykes’ trip to Fulham. It would provide a chance for the trio to show their worth to the new manager and that they can be relied upon to be Barnsley’s back three under him.

In the midfield two, Josh Benson should keep his place in the side having been a decent enough performer for the Tykes since his summer arrival from Burnley. He could be joined in the middle of the park by Claudio Gomes.

On the right-hand side, Callum Brittain is set to miss out on the game due to a one-match ban after he has accumulated five yellow cards in the Championship this season. Callum Styles could come back into the side in the wing-back role

Carlton Morris could be set to make a return to action and it was even suggested that he could be ready to start this game for Barnsley. He could come into the side alongside Aaron Leya Iseka, Cauley Woodrow would be expected to start up front.

Barnsley possible starting lineup:
Collins; Andersen, Helik, Moon; Williams, Gomes, Benson, Styles; Morris, Iseka; Woodrow,
