Martin Jol will be without a number of key players for Fulham’s trip to Stoke City tomorrow afternoon.

Alex Kacaniklic and Bryan Ruiz will both be out of action for around a fortnight after injuring hamstrings against Sunderland. Kieran Richardson is also unavailable for the game at the Bet 365 Stadium after picking up a hamstring problem in the 3-3 draw with Arsenal earlier this month. Recent signing Mikael Tavares also has a hamstring issue and recovers further treatment.

Brede Hangeland serves the first of a three-match suspension following his sending off against Sunderland. Simon Davies will miss out with a hip injury and Kerim Frei was recalled from his loan spell at Cardiff City too late to feature against Stoke. Chris Baird is available again after his ban and Mahamadou Diarra is expected to feature having finally shaken off his knee injury.
