Fulham appeared to be heading towards securing three points against Derby on Friday, with Fabio Carvalho making the breakthrough in the 20th minute of the contest, but the Rams turned the match around in the second period, meaning that the Cottagers are still waiting for their promotion to be finalised.
Marco Silva‘s side would guarantee a top-two finish with a victory over Preston on Tuesday, and they are also in a commanding position when it comes to winning the league, sitting nine points clear of second-placed Bournemouth, although the Cherries have one match in hand.
Fulham have lost three of their last five Championship matches, though, including their last two against Coventry City and Derby, while they were also beaten at West Bromwich Albion in the middle of last month.
That said, it has been an excellent season for the capital outfit, who have won 25, drawn eight and lost eight of their 41 league matches, scoring 95 times in the process, with Aleksandar Mitrovic registering 38 times in 39 matches in the second tier during a brilliant campaign.
The Cottagers have the second-best home record in the Championship this season, picking up 40 points from 20 matches, which is only bettered by Blackburn Rovers (41), and they will be taking on a Preston side with only the 14th-best away record in the second tier, picking up just 24 points from their 21 matches.
Fulham will once again be without the services of Terence Kongolo through injury on Tuesday, but the home side are otherwise in strong shape, with the league leaders not suffering any fresh concerns against Derby.
Head coach Silva will resist the temptation to shuffle his pack, but Antonee Robinson may come into the starting side at left-back, while Nathaniel Chalobah could feature in central midfield.
There are unlikely to be any alterations in the final third of the field, though, with Harry Wilson, Carvalho and Bobby Reid supporting leading goalscorer Mitrovic.
As for Preston, Emil Riis missed out against Millwall through injury and is also facing a fight to be available for this match, with a spot on the bench the most likely scenario.
Isaiah Brown and Tom Barkhuizen are still out through injury, meanwhile, but there are expected to be changes from the side that started against Millwall.
