Team News Bristol City vs Fulham
Fulham boss Scott Parker has no injury concerns. A 2-0 defeat away to struggling Stoke at the weekend means Parker’s side have won just two of their last eight league outings.
The Cottagers, among the pre-season promotion favourites, sit 10th as a result but Parker should have a full complement of players to select from.
Stefan Johansen sat out the defeat at the Bet365 Stadium but is set to return.
Luton may be without the services of Izzy Brown for the short trip to west London.
The on-loan Chelsea midfielder is a doubt after being forced off late on in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Bristol City with a leg injury.
Brown hit the post and laid on a goal for Harry Cornick before being replaced by Callum McManaman – who is likely to replace the 22-year-old if he is not fit.
There was better news on the injury front for fellow loanee James Bree as the Aston Villa defender expected to have recovered from a groin complaint that saw him taken off at half-time at the weekend.
