Match Preview
Fulham waiting on Stefan Johansen ahead of Brentford clash

Fulham hope Stefan Johansen will be fit for the west London derby against Brentford.

The Norwegian midfielder scored twice in the 4-1 win over Huddersfield last weekend but limped off with five minutes remaining.

Striker Chris Martin misses out again as he completes a three-match suspension.

The Cottagers know a win will seal their place in the play-offs as they are three points ahead of Leeds with a vastly superior goal difference.

Brentford face their second derby in a week having beaten QPR at home last Saturday.

They will check on midfielder Ryan Woods, who is struggling with a foot injury.

Defender Andreas Bjelland is fit after a hamstring problem but is unlikely to be thrust straight into the starting line-up.

Alan McCormack is not expected to be risked following a groin injury but Lasse Vibe should be available after having stitches in his ankle removed.
