Slavisa Jokanovic is looking forward to the international break so that some of his injured players can make their way back to his already small squad.
Fulham are without Lucas Piazon and Floyed Ayite and were missing captain Scott Parker for the game against Blackburn in midweek after he suffered a back injury in training.
The Cottagers have one of the smallest squads out of those challenging for the play-off places and Jokanovic bemoaned the absence of Parker against Blackburn, who he felt could have helped to see the game out with his experience.
And the boss expects some of his injured stars will return after the international break.
He said: "We are not the biggest squad in this moment.
"I am without some important players, I expect I am going to recover some players in this international break.
"I missed Scott Parker for the last 15 minutes to help us with his experience and his spirit to push the team. In the last games I gave him less minutes, but I gave him really important periods in the game.
"(Against Blackburn) probably if he was available I could have used him. But he wasn’t, and that’s it. We keep going to be ready for the game in front of us."
