New Fulham defender Brede Hangeland is still waiting for international clearance and will not be available for Tuesday’s clash with Bristol Rovers.

Paul Konchesky returns from suspension for the FA Cup third-round replay and Jimmy Bullard could start after making two substitute appearances since his recovery from a serious knee injury.

Ian Pearce, Brian McBride and Philippe Christanval are unlikely to feature despite returning to training, while striker Diomansy Kamara is on African Nations Cup duty with Senegal.
