Boss Gary Rowett revealed the Italian has been playing with a bruised toe since his arrival in January.

The issue flared up again in training on Monday and Blues must decide whether to press him into action as they chase the play-offs.

James Vaughan (calf) and Nicolai Brock-Madsen (quad) have recovered and are available to Rowett.

Fulham defender Chris Baird is hoping to shake off injury in time to feature in Slavisa Jokanovic’s squad.

Baird has missed Fulham’s last two matches after sustaining a knock in the recent draw at Reading and Jokanovic will make a late decision.

But Alexander Kacaniklic (unspecified), who has also missed the last two games, and fellow midfielder Lasse Christensen, out since mid-February due to a hamstring injury, remain sidelined.

Striker Cauley Woodrow is hoping to play a bigger role after his recovery from a broken bone in his foot. He made his first appearance since early January off the bench in last week’s home defeat to Bristol City.
