Jazz Richards missed Fulham's 2-2 draw against Wigan on Friday night with a calf injury.
The defender has been out of action since sustaining the injury while on international duty with Wales.
Fulham led twice, first through Ross McCormack's low drive and then Matt Smith's stunning 25-yard strike.
Jermaine Pennant's curling free-kick cancelled out the home side's opener and Jason Pearce prodded in on 69 minutes to earn a draw.
The result saw Fulham move nine points clear of safety with four games left to play.
Modou Barrow was also not included in the Nottingham Forest squad that lost 1-0 against Huddersfield at the City Ground.
Meanwhile, Dwight Tiendalli was also not involved as Middlesbrough kept pace at the top of the Championship with a 2-0 victory over Rotherham.
In League One, two Swans loanees went head-to-head as Crewe played host to Leyton Orient in a crucial game at the foot of the table.
Alan Tate played the full 90 minutes as the hosts slipped back into the relegation zone after a 1-1 draw at Gresty Road.
Crewe went ahead early on through Lauri Dalla Valle, but Orient - who also included Ryan Hedges in their starting line-up - hit back to earn a point thanks to Darius Henderson's strike.
The result leaves Crewe 21st in League One on goal difference with four games to play, while Orient have a better goal record and also have a game in hand on their rivals.
However, it wasn't such good news for Yeovil Town who suffered relegation to League Two following Saturday's 1-1 draw against Notts County at Huish Park.
Liam Shephard and Stephen Kingsley both played the full 90 minutes, while Josh Sheehan came on for the final seven minutes as the Glovers suffered a second successive relegation.
In League Two, Rory Donnelly featured as a second-half substitute as Tranmere lost 1-0 at promotion-chasing Southend, while David Cornell was an unused sub as Portsmouth went down 3-1 at Morecambe.
Tranmere's defeat leaves them one point adrift of safety with four games to play, with Portsmouth sitting comfortably in mid table.
