The left-back suffered a hamstring injury during the 2-0 defeat at Hull and is not expected to feature.

Lasse Vibe is rated 50/50 due to a hamstring problem and Marco Djuricin has a calf knock.

But Philipp Hofmann (back) and Lewis Macleod (knee) are back in training and could be added to the squad.

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has said he will stick with his strongest team for the remaining two league games.

The Whites have secured their position in the Sky Bet Championship but Jokanovic will not use the short trip to Brentford or a final-day home clash with Bolton to experiment ahead of next season.

Emerson Hyndman, Michael Madl and Tom Cairney all returned to Fulham’s starting line-up for last weekend’s 3-1 loss to Nottingham Forest and should keep their places.

Although Jokanovic insists wholesale changes will not take place, the likes of Ryan Tunnicliffe, Richard Stearman and Matt Smith will be hopeful of earning recalls.
