Fulham's new signing Nathaniel Chalobah impressed on his Fulham debut against Birmingham in midweek and should keep his place in midfield.

The Cottagers are likely to still be without teenager Fabio Carvalho, who has missed the last two games with a toe injury. Harrison Reed is also doubtful due to injury but “It’s nothing serious,” said boss Marco Silva.

Long-term injuries to Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo rule them out, but Harry Wilson, who went off early in the 4-1 away thumping of Birmingham on Wednesday, is fine.

“Harry and Harrison went off because they were really tired in that moment,” Siva explained.

“But Harry looks OK, and it’s different from Harrison.”

Josh Onomah, who sat out the Birmingham game, is also available again.

Mitrovic scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season on Wednesday night.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Gazzaniga; Odoi, Adarabioyo, Ream, Bryan; Seri, Reed, Chalobah; Wilson, De Cordova-Reid, Mitrovic,

Reading's John Swift has seven goals and three assists to his name, meaning he has played a part in 77% of Reading's goals this season.

The hand injury suffered by Royals goalkeeper Rafael Cabral is not as bad as first feared and the Brazilian is already back in training, but backup Luke Southwood should remain between the sticks at Craven Cottage.

Captain Liam Moore was forced off injured against Peterborough in midweek, with Tom Holmes likely to replace him in the centre of defence..

Reading possible starting lineup:
Southwood; Yiadom, Holmes, Morrison, Rahman; Dele-Bashiru, Laurent; Hoilett, Swift, Ejaria; Puscas
