Fulham face their third game in a week as they travel to the Pirelli Stadium to take on Burton Albion.

It's a been good week results wide for the side, with a 1-1 draw against Cardiff City swiftly followed by a 2-1 victory over Hull City and Slavisa Jokanovic will be hoping his side continue with another positive result today.

However, it's not all good news with Tom Cairney and Rui Fonte both missing the tie through injury, as they have done since the 2-0 victory over Ipswich Town before the international break.

The game kicks off at 3pm and we will have live updates from the Pirelli Stadium at 1.30pm, with team news and match updates throughout the afternoon.

Full time - Burton 2-1 Fulham

There’s the final whistle, Fulham suffer their second league defeat of the season as they’re beaten 2-1 by Burton

Ojo misses a sitter

Ojo should drag Fulham level but he puts his shot across the bar from only yards out

We're back

After major internet problems we’re back.

Fulham are currently 2-1 down after conceding a penalty but are threatening

Half time: Burton 1-1 Fulham

Not much between the two sides with both having decent chances.

Fulham need to figure a way to stop the hosts from latching onto the long ball which has caused problems, while it’s the same story for Fulham who have struggled to find that final quality in the final third.

One minute added on

Not sure where that’s come from as there’s been longer than a minute’s stoppage but there we go

Ojo booked for diving

Ojo beats Bywater to the ball as he’s played in and goes down - the referee blows and gives the Liverpool loanee a yellow for diving

Burton hit the post

Good work down the right sees the ball played into the middle and Burton fire off a strike from outside the box which hits the foot of the post and bounces away

Great strike

It was a great strike from Norwood and Fulham really need to shift the momentum in this game into their favour now

GOAL! Burton 1-1 Fulham - Norwood

Fulham equalise!

It’s been frustrating to watch but Oliver Norwood has got the side level with a lovely drilled strike into the bottom corner

Kebano has a go

Kebano has a go from well outside the box as he gets shut down by about four Burton players, but it’s straight at Bywater

Fulham lacking that final ball

Burton’s gameplan is working well and they’re making Fulham rush with their relentless pressing game

Better from Fulham

Kebano is played into space out wide and he plays it to Ojo, who slaloms his way into the box but his strike is blocked for a corner

Fulham miss a sitter

The ball is played into the six yard box and somehow Norwood skies it over from under the crossbar!

Scannell causing problems

Scannell’s runs in behind Ream and Kalas are causing problems and that’s how the goal came - defence need to find a way to contain him

GOAL! Burton 1-0 Fulham

Burton take the lead!

Scannell finds himself in behind and plays the ball into the box - it’s cut out by Norwood but falls to Warnock who taps home

Ojo tries to bend one top corner

Good this from Fulham, they’re recycling the ball well in the second phase - Ojo has just curled one over as he tried to find the top bin

Chance for Burton

Burton test Button early on but it’s an easy take for the Fulham keeper

Fulham start brightly

Good start from Fulham, nice football releases Kebano down the left but his ball into the box is cleared to safety
