Fulham fear Aleksandar Mitrovic will miss Friday’s match with Wolves, due to a nagging hamstring injury.

Mitrovic was absent from Saturday’s 1-0 win at Brighton, and Fulham could be without their top scorer again when Wolves visit Craven Cottage.

Without Mitrovic, Fulham produced only two shots on target against Brighton and rarely threatened until Manor Solomon scored an 88th-minute winner to lift them into sixth place.

Fulham will look to continue their European push when they play Wolves. They then have an FA Cup fifth-round tie with Leeds on February 28.

“Mitro got a minor injury in the muscle,” said Fulham boss Marco Silva.

“He had a small issue in the warm-up before the Nottingham Forest game.

“He doesn’t look really seriously injured. It’s probably a minor injury.

“I don’t know if he will be ready for [Wolves] or just for Leeds. The next few days will be important for us to see if he will be available.”
