Fulham will welcome back Harry Wilson but Fabio Carvalho is set to miss out at Birmingham City on Wednesday night.
Both players missed the below-par performance at Blackpool on Saturday as the Whites suffered their first loss of the season.
Wilson has recovered from concussion sustained playing for Wales, but Carvalho – the EFL player of the month for August – is struggling with the recurrence of a foot injury.
Manager Marco Silva admitted it’s also too soon to pencil in Carvalho for Saturday at home to Reading.
Silva said: “Harry Wilson is good, and taking the steps to play tomorrow.
“We have doubts about Fabio. He has a problem with his foot – in the toe.
“Sometimes players can play with the pain – he was OK to play against Stoke with some pain. After that, it becomes a little bit worse.
“It’s nothing really serious, but we are trying to get to the pain. Saturday? We have to take it day by day and see on Friday.”
