Fulham v Brentford: team news, key stats and match odds

Fulham will again be without Floyd Ayite for Saturday’s vital derby at Craven Cottage.

The forward sustained a hamstring injury at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend and could also miss next Friday’s game at in-form Millwall.

Whites boss Slavisa Jokanovic could name the same side that earned a 1-0 victory over Reading, although he does have options in the likes of Neeskens Kebano and Oliver Norwood.

Alan Judge could miss out for Brentford as he continues to struggle with a hamstring problem.

The issue forced Judge to miss Tuesday’s victory at Nottingham Forest and he did not train on Thursday.

Fellow midfielder Ryan Woods is available after completing his three-match ban, while winger Florian Jozefzoon is back in training and could feature.
