Fulham not in League Cup 1st round!

last updated Tuesday 19th June 2001, 3:53 PM

The Worthington Cup 2002 1st round fixtures may appear a bit strange to Fulham fans as their beloved Black and Whites are absent from the fixture list for the first time.

But, of course, there is nothing to worry about because as a Premiership team Fulham don't have to play in the First Round.

Fixtures of some interest are the one's that see newly promoted Brighton meeting Wimbledon and Leyton Orient meeting Crystal Palace.

League new-boys Rushden & Diamonds will travel to Burnley's Turf Moor in their first ever Worthington Cup tie with a certain Italian also making an early debut against Plymouth.
