Fulham will be without captain Tom Cairney when they travel to the Amex Stadium to face Brighton on Saturday afternoon. The 27-year-old was forced off during the Cottagers’ 4-2 victory over Burnley on Sunday and has been ruled out of Scotland’s matches against Belgium and Albania.
Scans have revealed the injury is not too bad and boss Slavisa Jokanovic is hoping to have the Nottingham-born midfielder back for the Manchester City clash on September 15.
Neeskens Kebano is out with an ankle problem, while Tim Ream and Floyd Ayite are also absent as the manager looks set to field his strongest XI after making changes for Tuesday’s 2-0 EFL Cup victory over Exeter City.
Fulham probable line-up: Bettinelli, Fosu-Mensah, Chambers, Mawson, Bryan, Seri, McDonald, Zambo Anguissa, Schurrle, Mitrovic, Vietto.
