Fulham vs Woves

FA Cup Third Round at Craven Cottage

Saturday January 3rd 2015    KO: 15:00

Referee: Lee Probert (Wiltshire)
Referee Lee Probert
Referee Lee Probert has been part of the Select Group of referees since 2007, after a successful 11-year career as an official in the Football League.

Probert came in for criticism, 2009, when he sent Arsene Wenger to the stands for kicking a water bottle. The Premier League subsequently issued an apology to Wenger.

Last season Ref Probert bossed four Fulham Premiership games, two home and two away games. We got one point at home to West Brom and lost all the others. Mind you the others were home against Man Utd and away at Chelsea and Arsenal.


Fulham will be without Lasse Vigen Christensen when they host Championship rivals Wolves in the FA Cup.

The Danish midfielder has a hamstring injury which forced him to miss Monday night's 2-0 home defeat by Brighton.

Costa Rican forward Bryan Ruiz will be checked over after he failed a late fitness test ahead of the Seagulls' visit.

Ryan Tunnicliffe has returned from his loan spell at Blackburn but is not eligible to play while Tim Hoogland (hernia) and Fernando Amorebieta (knee) are still injured.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves will be without Kevin McDonald for the trip through suspension.

The Scottish midfielder must serve a one-match ban after being sent off for two bookable offences in last weekend's Championship win over Brentford.

Striker Bakary Sako will be available before joining up with Mali for African Nations Cup duty, but defender Scott Golbourne has only played one game since early October due to a foot problem.

Danny Graham has returned to Sunderland following the end of a loan spell which saw him score one goal in five games but end up as an unused substitute in his last two matches.
