Fulham v Bristol Rovers - League Cup 2nd Round

Fulham v Bristol Rovers - League Cup 2nd Round

The Cottagers are back in action this Tuesday evening when they take on Bristol Rovers in a League Cup 2nd round tie.

After suffering a first defeat of the Championship season, against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, Slavisa Jokanovic will be hoping his side can repeat the form showed in the first round when they beat Wycombe Wanderers.

With the fixture looming large on the horizon, we have cobbled together some early team-news.

Starting with Fulham:

It`s anticipated that Jokanovic could give a first start of the season to Marcus Bettinelli, the keeper has now recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him on the side-lines.

With the Championship taking priority, there could be some rotation of the squad for this game with the likes of Steven Sessegnon, Ibrahima Cisse, Sheyo Ojo and Marcelo Djalo.

Continuing with Bristol Rovers:

Sam Slocombe is tipped to continue in goal with Adam Smith still troubled by a hand injury.

Dan Leadbitter, having recovered from a thigh problem, may make a return to the starting eleven.
