No fresh injury concerns arose for Fulham during their loss to Liverpool, where Joao Palhinha returned from a domestic suspension, meaning that Silva should only be without three known absentees for the visit of Cooper's team.

Adama Traore (thigh), Issa Diop (foot) and Rodrigo Muniz (knee) are not expected to make their comebacks just yet, but all three are expected to return before the New Year rolls around; the former and latter could even be back for the weekend's derby with West Ham.

Silva's decision to drop two-goal Wolves hero Willian for Wilson was justified at the weekend, but both Tom Cairney and Reid - who combined for Fulham's third at Anfield - have put their name in the hat for starts on Wednesday.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Tete, Bassey, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Cairney; Wilson, Pereira, Reid; Jimenez

Forest boss Cooper was forced into an unwanted change at half time against Everton, as centre-back Willy Boly succumbed to a hip problem and should now cede his place in the shield to Felipe or Moussa Niakhate.

Murillo (knock), Chris Wood (knee) and Danilo (illness) have also emerged as fresh concerns for Wednesday's game, which Taiwo Awoniyi will definitely miss as he recuperates from his severe groin injury.

There were no truly abysmal performances from the Tricky Trees at the weekend, but the quick turnaround should benefit Nicolas Dominguez, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Neco Williams's chances of earning recalls to the starting lineup on this occasion.

Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Vlachodimos; Williams, Felipe, Murillo, Toffolo; Mangala, Yates, Dominguez; Elanga, Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi
