Ragnar Sigurdsson and Michael Madl to miss play-off semi-final for Fulham

Fulham will be without defenders Ragnar Sigurdsson and Michael Madl for the play-off semi-final first leg against Reading.

Sigurdsson will miss out at Craven Cottage after suffering a calf problem and Madl is nursing an ankle injury.

Boss Slavisa Jokanovic does not expect either player to be fit for the second leg on Tuesday, but they might be available at Wembley should Fulham reach the final.

Jokanovic otherwise has a full-strength squad available.

Reading winger Garath McCleary is in contention despite missing the 4-2 win over Burton with a groin problem.

Skipper Paul McShane (calf) and midfielder Joey van den Berg (hamstring) played 45 minutes each against Albion to prove their fitness.

Stephen Quinn is also close to returning after a knee problem and Deniss Rakels is back in training following a broken ankle.

Winger Callum Harriott remains sidelined by a hamstring injury.
