Fulham will be without defender Philippe Senderos and striker Andrew Johnson for Saturday’s match against Stoke.
Both players are struggling with groin problems and have been ruled out of the game at Craven Cottage, where the Whites have lost only once in eight home matches.
Senderos picked up his injury during last weekend’s 3-0 defeat against leaders Manchester City.
Russian forward Pavel Pogrebnyak, the club’s recent signing from German side Stuttgart, could make his debut after being granted a work permit.
Steve Sidwell remains sidelined with an abdominal injury.
