Denis Odoi and Neeskens Kebano pushing for Fulham starts against Forest

Fulham defender Denis Odoi will likely deputise for the suspended Ryan Fredericks when Nottingham Forest visit Craven Cottage.

Odoi replaced the right-back and scored during their 3-2 win over Wigan, with Fredericks set to serve the second match of his three-game ban.

Centre-back Tomas Kalas will be assessed after missing Saturday's win with a hip problem.

Neeskens Kebano, who came off the bench to score the winner last weekend, is pushing for a start.

Forest have been dealt an injury blow with the news that goalkeeper Stephen Henderson has undergone Achilles surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

Henderson had to be carried off on a stretcher midway through the first half of the defeat at Norwich on Saturday, suffering the injury attempting to keep out the Canaries' third goal.

Vladimir Stojkovic is likely to replace the Irishman but Reds boss Gary Brazil also has youngsters Dimitar Evtimov and Jordan Smith available.

Full-back Eric Lichaj is suspended after his red card at Carrow Road but fellow defenders Michael Mancienne and Matt Mills (groin) are close to returning. Mancienne trained on Monday after a slight injury ruled him out at the weekend and he will be assessed.
