An FA Cup fourth-round replay against Sheffield United on Tuesday will give struggling Fulham an opportunity to restore some pride.
The London club's miserable season reached a new low on Saturday when they dropped to the bottom of the Premier League table with a 3-0 home defeat against Southampton.
Rene Meulensteen's side are without a win in four games and have scored just one goal in those fixtures.
Hugo Rodallega found the back of the net to salvage a replay at Bramall Lane on January 26 after 10-man United looked set to pull off a shock win.
Meulensteen has described the task he faces at Craven Cottage as the biggest challenge of his career to date and the Fulham head coach could really do with a morale-boosting win against Nigel Clough's League One side.
The former Manchester United coach's priority is to keep Fulham in the top flight, but a cup run could provide valuable momentum.
Meulensteen attempted to turn his side's fortunes around by bringing in several new faces during the transfer window.
Greece striker Konstantinos Mitroglou will be expected to add some much-needed firepower following his move from Olympiakos for an undisclosed fee - reported to be £12million.
However, Mitroglou, Larnell Cole, Lewis Holtby, Ryan Tunnicliffe, William Kvist and John Heitinga are not eligible to feature on Tuesday as they were not registered when the original tie was played.
Fulham have doubts over John Arne Riise (hamstring), Fernando Amorebieta (knee) and Matthew Briggs (hernia).
Sheffield United also come into the game on the back of a 3-0 defeat on Saturday, at the hands of Crewe Alexandra.
Clough was puzzled by his side's lacklustre display at Gresty Road against another side battling to avoid relegation.
United, who pulled off a stunning win at Aston Villa in the third round, are now without a win in four games across all competitions, but gave Fulham a real scare when the two sides met last month.
Chris Porter put United in front, but their hopes of reaching the fifth round suffered a major setback when Michael Doyle was sent off early in the second half and Rodallega denied them 15 minutes from time.
Porter has been struggling with a hamstring injury and dropped to the bench at Crewe, but the former Derby County striker could start at Craven Cottage.
Midfielder Doyle serves the second instalment of a three-match ban as a result of his dismissal in the first tie between the two clubs.
