Joe Bryan and Antonee Robinson are both in line to return at Coventry on Saturday to ease Fulham’s left back crisis, according to Marco Silva.

The Fulham boss will assess the pair after Fulham’s final training session at Motspur Park tomorrow. Bryan had to be replaced after injuring his back after a clash with Swansea’s Ethan Laird, but Silva believes the former Bristol City left back could make a quick recovery. Antonee Robinson was unavailable after jarring his knee in training but could also be available for the trip to the Midlands.

“Antonee wasn’t comfortable playing. It was something in his knee, but nothing special. Joe had a big impact on his back and it was really stiff at half time, and the beginning of the second half. Today, he’s doing better than yesterday. It’s possible tomorrow it could be much better again. After the session we will decide. But it looks good.

Fulham will certainly be without Nathaniel Chalobah and teenager Fabio Carvalho.

Fabio is working with the team. Today he worked again. He had a good session. Now is for him to get in the best physical condition to play, and we expect to see him after the international break. Chalobah felt something in the first half at Bristol City. He hasn’t worked with the team since then. It’s a small issue in his leg.”
