Watford v Fulham

1st April 2019, 19:10 by Simon Barlow

Scott Parker says Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic remains a doubt for Tuesday's Premier League clash at Watford.

A defeat could see the Cottagers, who will be looking to win their first away game of the campaign, relegated at Vicarage Road - following hard on the heels of Huddersfield Town.

Mitrovic missed Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Manchester City as he struggles with a stomach muscle injury and Parker has admitted it's a race against time for the Serbian.

The interim manager will make a late call on whether the forward will be able to feature against the Hornets on Tuesday night.

"Aleksandar has been struggling in the last few weeks," said Parker. "He featured for Serbia in the week against Portugal, he came back in and didn't really have a chance to get right.

"The turnaround for Tuesday is going to be a day-to-day basis.

"We'll try and get some treatment into him, but really I couldn't make a call on whether or not he will be fit for Tuesday."

Parker's side produced a brave display in their home defeat to City although they will need to improve once again this week.

Defender Alfie Mawson and goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli remain sidelined for the Whites.

For Watford, midfielder Tom Cleverley has a calf tear but Andre Gray and Jose Holebas, who have recovered from minor injuries and were unused substitutes at Manchester United on Saturday, could feature.
