Fulham captain Brede Hangeland should finally be fit for his first action in three months following back surgery in December as Fulham host Norwich in the FA Cup.

The Norwegian may have to start from the bench though, as boss Rene Meulensteen eases his experienced defender back in.

First-choice goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg will not be ready in time for the third round replay, as he edges towards a return from ankle trouble.

Norwich have no fresh injury problems ahead of Tuesday night's FA Cup third-round replay, where manager Chris Hughton confirmed he would again utilise his squad against Fulham.

Midfielder David Fox could come back into the side, while striker Luciano Becchio could also be handed a chance to impress along with 18-year-old winger Josh Murphy and his twin brother Jacob, who both played in the first tie.

Midfielders Alex Tettey (knee) and Anthony Pilkington (hamstring) have both returned to training, and could come into contention for the Barclays Premier League game against Hull. Centre-back Michael Turner (hamstring) and midfielder Jonny Howson (back) are still sidelined, winger Elliott Bennett (knee) is a long-term absentee.
