Fulham will again be without the services of Terence Kongolo due to a knee injury, while Tom Cairney is not expected to be involved despite recently returning to first-team training.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be back in the squad, having been unable to face parent club Chelsea last time out, while Harrison Reed trained on Friday, and the hosts are hopeful that the midfielder will be able to shake off a knock in time for the key encounter at Craven Cottage.

Loftus-Cheek could operate in the number 10 spot behind Josh Maja, while Ademola Lookman and Bobby Decordova-Reid should feature in the wide areas for the strugglers.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Robinson; Reed, Lemina; Reid, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman; Maja

Burnley, leading scorer Wood is available despite being withdrawn in the latter stages of the team's 2-1 defeat to West Ham on Monday evening due to a dead leg.

Robbie Brady and Kevin Long remain on the sidelines, but midfielder Dale Stephens is in contention, meaning that Dyche does have options for change at Craven Cottage.

Jay Rodriguez and Ashley Barnes are pushing for spots in the final third of the field, but Matej Vydra is likely to keep his spot alongside Wood as part of a front two.

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Vydra
