Fulham: No change there then!!
What seems to be becoming the norm this season, Fulham are constantly being decimated with injuries to key players, and the forthcoming Christmas programme is no different!!
Captain Boa Morte will be out for a month with a hamstring tear; fellow midfielder Diop faces a month to six weeks on the sidelines with a quad muscle tear - and defender Pearce's back problem is expected to keep him out for two weeks.
But manager Chris Coleman is hoping goalkeeper Antti Niemi, rated 50-50 following his recovery from cartilage surgery, and left-back Franck Queudrue (gashed shin) will return against Boro on Monday.
Kick-off at Craven Cottage is 8pm.
