Fulham v QPR line-ups: Whites defender out, one change for both sides, Smyth back in squad

Fulham are still without Tomas Kalas for the derby at Craven Cottage, where Luke Freeman returns for QPR.

On-loan Chelsea defender Kalas is back in training following a hip problem but is not yet fit enough to rejoin the squad.

The Whites make one change, with Lucas Piazon coming into midfield to replace Floyd Ayite, who drops to the bench.

Freeman, who is one yellow card away from a two-match ban, was left out for Rangers’ midweek win at Aston Villa.

Ryan Manning came in for that game and keeps his place, while Josh Scowen is out because of a suspected burst appendix.

Paul Smyth, who has been nursing a toe problem, is on the Rangers bench. But Jack Robinson remains sidelined.

Fulham: Bettinielli, Fredericks, Ream, Odoi, Targett, McDonald, Cairney, Johansen, Sessegnon, Piazon, Mitrovic
Subs: Button, Christie, Norwod, Ojo, Ayite, Fonte, Kamara

QPR: Smithies, Furlong, Onuoha, Lynch, Bidwell, Wszolek, Luongo, Manning, Freeman, Eze, Smith.
Subs: Ingram, Cousins, Washington, Baptiste, Perch, Osayi-Samuel, Smyth.
