Fulham (from):

Schwarzer, Zuberbuhler,

Paintsil, Stoor, Hangeland, Konchesky, Kallio, Milsom,

Murphy, Davies, Gray, Gera, Dacourt, Brown, Barnes,

Zamora, Nevland, Johnson, Dempsey, Kamara.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson looks certain to be without midfielder Dickson Etuhu for Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round trip to Swansea.

Etuhu hobbled off the pitch in last week's 0-0 draw with Wigan and is not yet fit for action, paving the way for a full debut for on-loan Inter Milan midfielder Olivier Dacourt.

Aaron Hughes is also struggling after sustaining a dead leg in Northern Ireland's midweek win over San Marino, while Clint Dempsey may be rested after a lengthy trip back from international duty with the USA.

Team news to follow ...................

Swansea will be without Gorka Pintado for the clash.

The Spanish striker has had a long-awaited double hernia operation after previously playing through the pain barrier and is expected to be sidelined for two weeks.

Full-back Angel Rangel will return to the squad following a one-match ban but will have to battle it out with Albert Serran for a starting role against the Cottagers at the Liberty Stadium.

Andrea Orlandi is expected to retain his place after fully recovering from an ankle injury while 17-year-old rookie goalkeeper David Cornell will be added to the squad for the first time.

Meanwhile, long-term absentee Darren Pratley (shoulder) remains six to seven weeks away from a return.
