Five Fulham players have been ruled out of Fulham’s final match of the season, against Newcastle.

Long-term absentees Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo are joined on the sidelines by Aleksandar Mitrovic, Antonee Robinson and Harrison Reed.

“Harrison has a bit of an issue with his ankle and further up his leg as well,” boss Scott Parker explained.

With Harrison Reed being forced off through injury against Man United, Joachim Andersen could be restored to the Fulham starting lineup.

Mario Lemina may move back into midfield, while there could be changes elsewhere with goalkeeper Marek Rodak potentially being given a run out between the sticks.

Thinking ahead to next season, Parker may also hand a starting role to midfielder Josh Onomah.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Rodak; Adarabioyo, Andersen, Ream; Aina, Lemina, Anguissa, Bryan; Onomah, Lookman; Cavaleiro

Willock, Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton all sustained knocks in midweek, something which could lead to several changes to the Newcastle side.

Sean Longstaff, Dwight Gayle and Andy Carroll are all on standby, as is deputy goalkeeper Mark Gillespie after Martin Dubravka also picked up an issue during the closing stages against Sheffield United.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Gillespie; Schar, Clark, Dummett; Murphy, Longstaff, Shelvey, Almiron, Ritchie; Gayle, Carroll
