Bobby Decordova-Reid and Josh Onomah are available for selection as Fulham look to continue their unbeaten start to the season against Hull City tomorrow.

Decordova-Reid missed the midweek win at Millwall with a minor knock sustained in training, whilst Onomah was withdrawn at half-time at the New Den on Tuesday after taking a number of heavy challenges. Fulham boss Marco Silva told his pre-match press conference that both players have proven their fitness and could feature in his starting line-up.

The Whites are still without Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo and, although Harrison Reed has been training with the side again this week after his ankle issues, Silva says that he remains doubtful and ‘needs more time’.

“Tom is still out. Harrison Reed started training with the team and is working with them. He’s doubtful for this match and needs more time. But Bobby is available and Josh is 100% fine.”

Silva is looking forward to facing one of his former sides at Craven Cottage tomorrow and won’t be underestimating the challenge posed by Grant McCann’s men.

“It will be a difficult game again. They had a very good first away match. This season they started with an away game with a good score and a good win for them. We’ll respect them, they are a strong team on the counter attack, they like to be compact and then counter attack. They have good players, fast players on the sides as well. They can play good football, they have this quality, and you have to be aware.”

It will be a special game for me, definitely it will be a special game for me. It’s a special club, a great club that I had the pleasure to work for when I first arrived in England to manage in the Premier League. It has special people, special fans as well. The way they welcomed us to that club was special and we’ll never forget that situation.”
