Andrew Johnson, Bobby Zamora and Damien Duff are all likely to miss Fulham’s trip to Norwich on New Year’s Eve.
Fulham boss Martin Jol does not believe strikers Bobby Zamora (Achilles) and Andy Johnson (groin) will be fit to return, while Duff is also set to miss out through injury.
Fellow midfielder Simon Davies (back) is hopeful of a return for the New Year fixtures but continues to miss out. Fulham are also without defender Zdenek Grygera (knee) and goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer (spine).
Provisional squad: Stockdale, Etheridge, Riise, Kelly, Baird, Hangeland, Senderos, Hughes, Dembele, Briggs, Kasami, Murphy, Gecov, Etuhu, Ruiz, Dempsey, Frei, Sa.
