Recent signing Pavel Pogrebnyak could make his Fulham debut .

The Russia international joined from Stuttgart on transfer deadline day and could feature at Craven Cottage, although fellow striker Andrew Johnson will miss out as he continues to recover from a left adductor injury.

Philippe Senderos will miss the next couple of weeks after an MRI scan showed he has a grade two strain in his left adductor, while Zdenek Grygera (knee) and Steve Sidwell (hernia) are also unavailable.

Stoke will be without suspended defender Robert Huth.

Huth begins a three-match ban after the Potters’ appeal to the Football Association against the red card he received in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Sunderland was rejected.

Forward Cameron Jerome limped off in that game with a dead leg and midfielder Matthew Etherington missed it due to a virus, but manager Tony Pulis is hopeful both players will be available for the contest at Craven Cottage.

Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Stockdale, Etheridge, Hangeland, Riise, Kelly, Frei, Murphy, Etuhu, Gecov, Dempsey, Ruiz, Davies, Duff, Hughes, Baird, Dembele, Trotta, Kasami, Pogrebnyak.

Stoke (from): Sorensen, Begovic, Wilkinson, Shawcross, Wilson, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Etherington, Crouch, Walters, Shotton, Upson, Diao, Jones, Whitehead, Whelan, Woodgate, Fuller, Jerome, Collins.
