Although Fulham have been far from a one-man team this season, the absence of Aleksandar Mitrovic against Derby County suggested otherwise as they failed to find the back of the net against the bottom-placed side.
Despite credit needing to be given to their opponents, Marco Silva would have been bitterly disappointed with being held to a goalless draw by the Rams.
On a positive note, none of their direct rivals took advantage, but the Portuguese will only feel extra reliant on top goalscorer Mitrovic heading into the Christmas period.
Summer arrival Rodrigo Muniz was making his first start in the second tier of English football, and the 20-year-old found it considerably more difficult to when he netted twice as a substitute against 10-man Blackburn Rovers earlier this month.
Silva would been satisfied with another clean sheet being added to their tally, Fulham now shutting out the opposition in six of their last seven matches.
With Tuesday’s cameo his first appearance in three months, Evans is likely to remain on the Preston substitutes’ bench for this contest.
Daniel Johnson and Scott Sinclair are pushing for starting roles, but McAvoy may opt to keep the same team which started at Middlesbrough.
With Tom Cairney and Mitrovic having both been sidelined through illness this week, they are unlikely to come back into contention for a starting role.
Silva may stick with the same Fulham XI, although the likes of Josh Onomah and Bobby DeCordova Reid are both pushing for recalls.
A reshuffle may lead to Muniz starting this fixture among the replacements and Harry Wilson being used in a central position.
