Fulham will be boosted by the return of Bobby Zamora.
The England international missed last weekend's match at Manchester City after going over on his ankle in training just days after making his long-awaited comeback from a broken leg.
Midfielder Steven Sidwell continues to miss out with knee ligament trouble, while long-term absentee Philippe Senderos needs more work after feeling tightness in his hamstrings.
Blackburn have named former Barcelona B striker Ruben Rochina in their squad for the first time.
Rochina's arrival in the group is a timely boost for Steve Kean as Roque Santa Cruz is doubtful because of a back problem. The Paraguayan trained on Friday, however.
Christopher Samba returns after a virus while Junior Hoilett is expected to recover from a hamstring strain. But Ryan Nelsen (suspension) and David Dunn (hip injury) are both ruled out.
Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Stockdale, Pantsil, Hangeland, Hughes, Baird, Briggs, Etuhu, Davies, Murphy, Duff, Dempsey, Gudjohnsen, Kakuta, Gera, Dembele, Salcido, Greening, Johnson, Zamora, Halliche.
Blackburn (from): Robinson, Salgado, Samba, Givet, Olsson, Andrews, J Jones, MB Diouf, Santa Cruz, Pedersen, Bunn, Hanley, Emerton, Nzonzi, Grella, Benjani, Hoilett, Roberts, Kalinic, Rochina.
