Fulham Team News
Scott Parker is set to benefit from a significant injury boost after the return of talisman Aboubakar Kamara to full training. Previously, Kamara missed out on five matches for the Cottagers after picking up an injury.
The return of Kamara provides several attacking options for Scott Parker, especially with the injuries sustained by Aleksandar Mitrovic and Anthony Knockaert. Scott Parker has been relying on Bobby Reid as the head of the attacking line, but Kamara provides another viable option.
Huddersfield Team News
It remains a doubt whether goalkeeper Kamil Grabara will feature in the clash after picking up a concussion during their clash with Hull City. This means that Ryan Schofield might gain selection to the first team. However, the academy graduate was sent on loan to Livingston, and it remains a doubt whether he can be recalled ahead of the clash.
Prediction and Odds
Fulham has to deal with injury woes at the camp, especially with the attacking options. Huddersfield can also take advantage of the lack of goalkeeping options for the side ahead of the clash.
