Fulham club-record signing Kostas Mitroglou has returned to training following a knee injury, but will not be in the squad to face Hull on Saturday.

Mahamadou Diarra (knee), Kieran Richardson (hamstring) and Sascha Riether (illness) are all available having missed the defeat at Tottenham.

Midfielder Lewis Holtby can also feature having been ineligible to play against his parent club last weekend.

Hull expect to have strikers Shane Long and Sone Aluko fit for their Barclays Premier League trip to relegation-threatened Fulham.

Aluko missed last week's defeat to Arsenal with a hamstring injury and Long was replaced at half-time with a calf complaint, but both are due to travel to Craven Cottage, where Matty Fryatt, Yannick Sagbo and Nikica Jelavic are also hoping to get the nod up front.

Goalkeeper Allan McGregor is running again after breaking three ribs and damaging his kidney against West Ham last month, but is not yet in full training.

Fulham Squad: Stockdale, Heitinga, Hangeland, Amorebieta, Riise, Sidwell, Parker, Dejagah, Kvist, Kacaniklic, Rodallega, Stekelenburg, Zverotic, Karagounis, Kasami, Bent, Diarra, Richardson, Riether, Holtby.

Hull squad: Harper, Jakupovic, Rosenior, Figueroa, Bruce, Chester, Davies, Meyler, Huddlestone, Koren, Fryatt, Livermore, Boyd, Aluko, Quinn, Elmohamady, Sagbo, Long, Jelavic.
