Swansea City and Fulham meet at the Liberty Stadium to get another round of matches underway in the Championship on Friday night, and both sides have big names doubtful for the game, according to BBC Sport.

Just two points separate the sixth placed Swans and the Cottagers, who are three spots in front of them heading into the weekend, so this one should be a keenly fought contest.

Swansea go into the match off the back of a disappointing draw against Huddersfield in midweek, and will be looking to make up for that in front of their own supporters, but face being without a key player.

Mike van der Hoorn is a doubt for the Swans after picking up an ankle injury against the Terriers, so teenager Ben Cabango could be handed a first Championship start in his place.

Fulham have suddenly picked up a decent run of form, with three successive victories either side of the international break, moving them up to third, and they will look to close the gap between themselves and the top two even further here.

The latest win for the Cottagers came at home to Derby in midweek, when Aleksandar Mitrovic returned to highlight why nobody has more goals in the Championship this term than he.

The Serbia international might need to spearhead the Fulham goal charge for this contest, as the Londoners could be without Bobby Reid and Aboubakar Kamara, both of whom are doubtful for the game.

That could mean a Cottagers recall for Anthony Knockaert, who was left out for the win against the Rams on Tuesday evening, but who has shown his qualities for Scott Parker at various times this season.

Swansea have won five of the last six league matches between these two, but Fulham head into the game in excellent form, so it will be interesting to see which way this one results in a victory for.
