Sixth-placed Fulham welcome the relegation battlers at Craven Cottage and a win would put them level on points with Newcastle in fifth.
Just like in the 1-0 win over Brighton last weekend, Marco Silva’s side will have to make do without top scorer Mitrovic, who is still recovering from a hamstring problem.
“It will be difficult for him to be ready but he will have some more [training] time tomorrow,” Silva said on Thursday. “He was on the pitch today. Let’s see the reaction from today. Tom Cairney is still out, as is Neeskens Kebano.”
Cairney is out with an ankle injury until at least next week while Kebano is a long-term absentee having ruptured his Achilles in early November.
Silva opted to move Bobby Decordova-Reid to centre-forward in place of the absent Mitrovic in the win over Brighton but despite the result it didn’t work.
Out-and-out striker Carlos Vinicius comes in this evening.
Starting XI: Leno, Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson, Reed, Palhinha, Reid, Pereira, Willian, Vinicius.
Subs: Rodak, Kurzawa, Adarabioyo, Duffy, Wilson, Solomon, Cedric, James, Lukic.
