Aaron Hughes is a doubt for Fulham after he had to be taken off during the first half of the game against Blackburn Rovers, while Bjorn Helge Riise may be unavailable due to the hamstring problem sustained after the game against RNK Split.
Dickson Etuhu missed the recent Europa League clash against Twente due to a thigh problem and is also a doubt for this fixture.
