Mickey Adams to miss Fulham striker Zamora

Port Vale manager Micky Adams Former Fulham and now Port Vale manager Mickey Adams and Bobby Zamora have already exchanged texts before Fulham's Carling Cup clash with Port Vale.

But it had nothing to with the match that brings the former Whites manager back to the Cottage for the third time since he was sacked at the start of chairman Mohamed Al Fayed's reign in 1997.

"We texted each other last week before the England game to thank each other for the past at Brighton," said Adams.

"I was proud of the fact he played for England and I hope he gets a few more opportunities."

"Bobby is a great kid who always knew where the back of the net was," said Adams.

"He was a very intelligent footballer, I didn't have to tell him things twice and if I gave him a rollicking he didn't sulk."

But it's likely Zamora will sit out the game as current Fulham boss Mark Hughes is ready to make a raft of changes to the team that produced an exciting 2-2 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.

Hughes had six internationals warming the bench against the Man Utd, and with Blackpool and the Premier League a bigger priority on Saturday, Hughes could make use of all six to knock over the League Two side.
