Andy Lonergan, Ryan Fredericks and Jazz Richards are amongst the players Fulham manager Kit Symons will have to do without against Birmingham.

On-loan Joe Lewis will again deputise in goal on Saturday, with Marcus Bettinelli a long-term absentee due to knee ligament damage and Lonergan facing a month out with a hamstring injury.

Fredericks is unlikely to be risked after coming off in Tuesday’s 3-1 loss at Burnley with a hamstring complaint, while fellow full-back Richards remains absent with a calf injury.

Former England midfielder Scott Parker, who is building up his fitness following ankle problems, could return to the squad, but Jack Grimmer (ankle) and Sakari Mattila (illness) are out.
