Fulham head coach Scott Parker on Mitrovic and Kebano injury situation

Fulham head coach Scott Parker has made no promises that Aleksandar Mitrovic or Neeskens Kebano will be fit for their Championship play-off final against Brentford next week.

Mitrovic sat out both legs of the semi-final against Cardiff City.

Kebano scored in the two games against the Bluebirds but went off at half-time in Thursday’s fixture at Craven Cottage. He had an ice pack strapped to the top of his leg.

The pair have little time to recover for the derby at Wembley.

Parker said: “Neeskens felt his hamstring. And Mitro is day to day, to be honest with you.

“We’re hoping he’ll be alright for Tuesday. We’ve had it quite tough since lockdown. We’ve had three positive Covid tests. We’ve had [Ivan] Cavaleiro out. And the players have done extremely well.

“It’s been an absolutely relentless two months. A lot of football, a lot of games and this is where you need to keep going.

“I’m hoping they’ll all be fine and we can keep pushing.”
