Ahead of a home fixture with Coventry City, there was the assumption that Fulham would move to the brink of automatic promotion with a 13th home win of the season.
However, the West Londoners were well beaten by the Sky Blues, who were 2-0 ahead after 24 minutes and eventually prevailed by a 3-1 scoreline.
All things considered, the result will almost certainly not deny Fulham an immediate return to the Premier League, but it has left Marco Silva to reiterate to his players that they cannot avoid to get complacent.
Still sitting 10 points ahead of Bournemouth, however, the Portuguese will stress that it is not the time to panic, even if their final four fixtures are against teams occupying spots in the top six.
On a more positive note, Fulham have won 13 of their 20 away fixtures this campaign, collecting eight points more than the next best effort.
After scoring Fulham’s consolation goal against Coventry, Bobby Decordova-Reid could be handed a recall in a creative area.
Jean Michael Seri will hope to feature in central midfield, with Nathaniel Chalobah most likely to drop down to the substitutes’ bench.
While further alterations are possible, Silva will be against tinkering with an otherwise successful team.
Rooney will consider making several changes to his Derby XI, including handing a recall to Festy Ebosele down the right flank.
