Jamie O’Hara will sit out Fulham’s League Cup clash with Stoke and Tom Cairney is also likely to miss tonight’s game.
A hip injury meant O’Hara missed training on Monday, while Cairney picked up a knock during the session and is being assessed.
Neither injury is serious but Whites boss Kit Symons wants to make sure the pair are available to face QPR so is reluctant to risk them ahead of Friday’s derby.
Both players scored in Fulham’s 3-2 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.
Fulham will also be without recent signings Ryan Fredericks and James Husband against Stoke as both players are cup-tied.
