Fulham are hopeful defenders Sascha Riether (calf) and Kieran Richardson (foot) will be fit for Tuesday night's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Sheffield United.

Cottager boss Rene Meulensteen is again likely to draft in some fringe players, but defender Fernando Amorebieta (knee) and John Arne Riise (hamstring) remain doubtful.

Deadline-day signings Kostas Mitroglou, Johnny Heitinga and Lewis Holtby are all not eligible to play in the cup tie.

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



Sheffield United will be without Billy Paynter and Elliot Whitehouse for their FA Cup replay at Fulham.

Paynter and Whitehouse have both played in the competition for other clubs and are cup-tied so Diego De Girolamo will come into the squad, with boss Nigel Clough confirming a member of the Under-18 squad will also travel.

Harry Maguire (knee) and striker Chris Porter (hamstring) both came through injuries to take their place in the side for the disappointing 3-0 loss at Crewe on Saturday and they have come through unscathed.

There are no fresh injury or selection concerns for the Blades, who will face the winner of Preston and Nottingham Forest in the quarter-final if they can beat the Cottagers.
