Dave Jones said: "Any home tie in the cup must be seen as a good tie and it doesn’t really matter who you are going to play. But Fulham are a very, very good side and they always have been since they achieved promotion to the Premier League."
Martin Jol said: "There will be a few changes. We have 18 or 19 players and they are all good enough to come in and play. I can give three or four players a rest."
