TEAM NEWS

Brentford are unlikely to have left-back Jake Bidwell available after he injured a hamstring against Hull.

Another hamstring casualty, Lasse Vibe, is rated 50/50 and Marco Djuricin is doubtful with a bruised calf.

Even with relegation avoided, Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic says he will play the strongest team available.

Emerson Hyndman, Michael Madl and Tom Cairney returned to the starting line-up for the 3-1 defeat by Nottingham Forest and should keep their places.

MATCH FACTS

  • There has not been a league draw between the sides at Griffin Park since February 1987, with both sides winning four games apiece since then.
