Fulham v Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough are in the capital this weekend when meeting Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday (kick-off 3.00pm).

Midfielder Adam Clayton returns for the visitors having been suspended for the midweek Carabao Cup victory at Aston Villa. But winger Adama Traore will be completing a three-match ban following his recent dismissal.

Summer recruit Martin Braithwaite [hamstring] is recently back in training but once again wasn't expected to be involved, while fellow striker Rudy Gestede [thigh] remains a long-term absentee.

Fulham are themselves missing Rafa Soares [ankle] and Lucas Piazon [broken leg], with skipper Tom Cairney [knee] also struggling - although Portuguese winger Rui Fonte may return.
