Saturday will see Fulham without the same players who missed the midweek victory over Hull City.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Slaviša Jokanović stated: “It’s the same as before this last game.

“Tom Cairney and Rui Fonte are out, you know about Lucas [Piazon], Rafa [Soares] still hasn’t started working with us.

“Tom didn’t start working with us yet, Rui made part of the training today with us, but it’s very difficult and I don’t think they’re going to be part of the team for the Burton game.

“At the moment we are without some very important players, but we expect they’re going to be with us soon.

“From another side, it’s a chance for other people to show how important they can be for us, and be good replacements for the people who aren’t in the squad.

“This isn’t a competition for just 11 players, especially in the Championship you need a squad who can be available to compete in this busy and tough competition.”
