Fulham's strong cup bid.

Fulham's strong cup bid.

Fulham boss Chris Coleman has promised to field a strong team for Wednesday night's Carling Cup clash with Wycombe.

The Cottagers are struggling in midfield with Jimmy Bullard, Papa Bouba Diop, Mark Pembridge and Simon Elliott all ruled out through injury.

Coleman fielded a weakened side in the competition last year, scraping past Lincoln in a 5-4 win at the same stage, but is not set to do the same against the Chairboys.

'I've said all long that I will not pick a weakened team for the Carling Cup,' said the Fulham boss, 'But while I'm not going to select the kids, any player who is still struggling from the Tottenham game won't be figuring.

'No disrespect to Wycombe but any team we field should be strong enough to win, although they will make it hard for us.

'I want to do well in both cups. I rested a lot of guys in the FA Cup last year.

'We didn't haven't a lot of strength in depth and got beaten by Orient. We had enough good players on the pitch, we just didn't perform.'

As far as I am concerned it is every managers duty to field the strongest team for every match, the cups are a realistic way of getting into Europe, look at Wet Spam last season, they lost in a cup final and still get a European place, wrong, very wrong.

Looking back now especially, what a good way to reach Europe. Unfortunately it is the players' attitudes rather than the manager's which lost us this game.

Take nothing away from Wycombe as this was their special night. Well done the Chairboys!
