Carvalho and Chalobah ruled out as Fulham wait on Robinson and Bryan

Fulham will face Coventry in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off without Fabio Carvalho and Nathaniel Chalobah.

Both midfielders are expected to return after the intentional break, while Marco Silva has fingers crossed for Antonee Robinson and Joe Bryan.

The Whites boss is hoping at least one recovers from injury in time, otherwise he will have no ready-made left back.

Robinson is nursing a knee injury and Bryan hurt his back against Swansea.

Silva said: “Antonee wasn’t comfortable playing (against Swansea). It was something in his knee, but nothing special.

“Joe had a big impact on his back and it was really stiff at half time, and the beginning of the second half. Today, he’s doing better than yesterday.

“It’s possible tomorrow (Friday) it could be much better again. After the session we will decide. But it looks good.

“Fabio is working with the team. Today he worked again. He had a good session. Now is for him to get in the best physical condition to play, and we expect to see him after the international break.

“Chalobah felt something in the first half at Bristol City. He hasn’t worked with the team since then. It’s a small issue in his leg.”
