Rui Fonte has been handed a start as Fulham make one change from last week's victory over Birmingham City.

The forward comes into the starting line-up at the expense of Neeskens Kebano, who misses out with a hamstring injury.

Marcus Bettinelli retains his place in the XI, keeping David Button out of Slavisa Jokanovic's side.

The 25-year-old made his first start of the campaign against the Blues, and has seemingly done enough to retain the goalkeepers' jersey.
