Fulham will check on captain Brede Hangeland ahead of the trip to Leicester in the Capital One Cup.

The centre-half missed Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Southampton due to a nerve problem in his leg.

Fit-again Aaron Hughes (thigh) could start after making his first appearance in a month as a substitute at St Mary's, but fellow defender Matthew Briggs (hernia) is still missing.

Squad details to follow .........................



Leicester manager Nigel Pearson will "tweak" his starting line up for the visit of Fulham.

One change could see leading scorer David Nugent replaced after the eight-goal striker was forced off due to illness early in the second half of the home league win over Bournemouth on Saturday. Chris Wood came on for Nugent against the Cherries but Jeff Schlupp and Gary Taylor-Fletcher are also options up front.

On-loan Arsenal defender Ignasi Miquel and midfielders Dean Hammond and Matty James will also hope to come into the reckoning for starting places against Martin Jol's Premier League team.

Ahead of the fourth-round tie, Pearson said: "We'll tweak the starting line-up but that won't weaken us."
