The festive fixtures continue at a pace with Fulham welcoming high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion to Craven Cottage this Monday.

Both sides saw the last fixtures fall victim to the fog that has been swirling around the country for the last few days.

Brighton`s fixture was called off before the game had started whilst Fulham`s was abandoned at half time due to the worsening weather conditions.

The game against Brighton will, no doubt, be a tough one and will give us all an indication as to whether Fulham are suited for a promotion campaign this season.

With the kick-off still some way off, we have some early team-news.

Starting with Fulham:

The big decision Slavisa Jokanovic has to make relates to Chris Martin. The on-loan striker didn`t feature against Reading, in the abandoned game, with their being speculation he wants to return to his parent club, Derby County.

Continuing with Brighton:

Chris Hughton will be without Kazenga LuLua, the player is serving the third game of a four-match ban.

Brighton will also be without the injured duo of Beram Kayal and Liam Rosenior.

Another absentee is Sebastien Pocognoli, with the Belgian defender recovering from a slight knock.
