Consistency is everything in the Championship, and it has proven to be the difference when it comes to Fulham and Bournemouth establishing a considerable advantage in the race for the Premier League.
However, ahead of reaching the halfway stage, both clubs have started to show vulnerability, particularly Bournemouth who have only recorded one victory in five games.
Neither Marco Silva or Scott Parker will be too concerned at this stage with previous challengers West Bromwich Albion having dropped off alarmingly over the past month.
Nevertheless, there will be an eagerness to get back on track with a resurgent Queens Park Rangers having recently moved to within seven points of second position.
Fulham will argue that they are still on an upward trajectory, the West Londoners unbeaten in nine Championship fixtures and having conceded just three goals.
Despite the share of the spoils at Deepdale, Silva will give consideration to naming the same Fulham XI.
However, Bobby Decordova-Reid is an alternative in the final third, while Tom Cairney will come into contention if he has fully shaken off the illness which has kept him sidelined for the last two games.
With Lerma and Chris Mepham both suspended for this contest, Parker may feel that he has little choice but to revert to a back four.
Gary Cahill could return after a rib injury to partner Steve Cook, while Leif Davis will hope to come into the team at left-back.
Zeno Rossi is an alternative if Parker sticks with a back three, but the remainder of the team should stay the same.
