Jimmy Bullard has been ruled out of Fulham's FA Cup third-round tie at Sheffield Wednesday through illness.

But Zoltan Gera (calf), Andranik Teymourian (knee) and Diomansy Kamara (knee) remain sidelined.

Team details to follow .................

Wednesday manager Brian Laws will again send out a patched-up side.

Laws hopes to have strikers Leon Clarke and Akpo Sodje and winger Jermaine Johnson back for the Owls' next league match against Ipswich, but the trio are not expected to be included in the cup tie.

But defender Lewis Buxton, on loan from Stoke, has been given permission to play by his parent club and Wade Small (eye), Francis Jeffers (groin) and Steve Watson (hip) all came through unscathed against Coventry last weekend after returning from injury.

Chelsea midfielder Jimmy Smith, on loan since August, will not be included so as not to be cup-tied ahead of his return to Stamford Bridge next week.

Youngsters Rocky Lekaj, Nathan Modest and Luke Boden are all expected to retain their places in the squad.
