FULHAM are sweating on the fitness of Paul Konchesky before Saturday's FA Cup home clash with Tottenham.

The West London Whites are hoping the left-back has recovered from his ankle injury, but will again be without long-term crocks Clint Dempsey, John Pantsil and Andrew Johnson (all have knee injuries).

Kagisho Dikgacoi's ankle injury makes him a doubt.

Peter Crouch should be buzzing for Spurs after scoring twice for England in their midweek win over Egypt - assuming he reclaims a starting role alongside Jermain Defoe from Roman Pavlyuchenko, who played against Everton in the last match.

Jonathan Woodgate, Carlo Cudicini, Ledley King and Aaron Lennon are their long term injured.

This will be the third meeting between the teams this season, following a 0-0 draw at Craven Cottage on Boxing Day and a 2-0 win for Spurs at White Hart Lane in January.

The Whites will expect to put up more fight than they did three years ago when they lost a fifth round tie 4-0 at home to Tottenham when Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov scored two each and Vincenzo Montella was sent off for Fulham.
