Fulham midfielder Harrison Reed is expected to recover in time from a twisted knee but Tom Cairney will miss out with an ankle problem.

New signings Sasa Lukic and Cedric Soares are available for their debuts..

Having failed to find the net in his last three league outings, Aleksandar Mitrovic will be eager to add to his tally of 11 goals in 18 matches when he returns to the starting lineup this weekend.

Neeskens Kebano remains a long-term injury absentee for the Cottagers, while there are question marks over the fitness of midfield duo Harrison Reed and Tom Cairney, meaning that Harry Wilson could be handed a start on Saturday.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Pereira, Palhinha; Reid, Willian, Wilson; Mitrovic

Nottingham Forest's extensive injury list contains Dean Henderson, Moussa Niakhate, Taiwo Awoniyi, Omar Richards, Cheikhou Kouyate and Giulian Biancone, while Ryan Yates remains absent due to illness.

Following an impressive debut performance, on-loan goalkeeper Kaylor Navas will continue to deputise for Henderson, with Willy Boly and Scott McKenna expected to start at centre-back.

Jonjo Shelvey and Felipe could feature for the visitors for the first time after arriving at the City Ground during the winter transfer window, although both players are likely to start on the bench this weekend.

Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Navas; Aurier, Boly, McKenna, Lodi; Danilo, Freuler, Mangala; Gibbs-White; Johnson, Wood
