TEAM NEWS

SWFC: If round two is to provide any clues into team selection, it is highly likely manager Garry Monk will ring the changes again for tonight’s trip to the capital.

Wednesday made 11 changes for the 2-0 win over Dale last time out in the cup.

Elias Kachunga scored on his maiden start for the Owls, while Josh Windass came off the bench late to add a second.

Youngsters Liam Shaw, Ciaran Brennan, Alex Hunt and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru all started in the last round and after solid performances, will be pushing for more game-time in round three.

Fulham: Scott Parker is likely to make changes also.

Mitrovic, who bagged his first Premier League goals of the season last weekend at Leeds, could be rested with Aboubakar Kamara ready to step in.

Fulham have no fresh injuries but made nine changes in their previous cup outing, and Parker has indicated it will be a similar case in terms of selection for the Owls.

Owls boss on Fulham: “We will be going down there trying to give a good account of ourselves. The standard we have set ourselves is really high and we want to win games. You can see the lads are desperate to win games.”

Fulham manager Scott Parker said: “We played against them last season, not too long ago at the Cottage, so we’re familiar with Sheffield Wednesday. They’re a strong side, we know that, we saw that last time we played against them. We had some good moments, but they showed that they can cause you some problems.”
