Play it again Sam (and Stan)

Last updated : 26 February 2003 By Tony Scholes
Glen Little - fit again and should be on the bench
In fact it will be a case of play it again when the Clarets take to the field and for the third match in succession it will be the same line up.

There must have been thoughts of bringing Glen straight back in or even starting with Robbie Blake but neither will start and Burnley will line up as they did at Loftus Road and in the home match against Derby.

Lee Briscoe and Driss Diallo picked up knocks during that win against Derby but both have come through with no problem and both will be in the starting line up tonight. Only Steve Davis from the first team squad is now unavailable.

That starting line up (in a 4-1-4-1 system) is: Marlon Beresford, Dean West, Ian Cox, Driss Diallo, Graham Branch, Paul Cook, Ian Moore, Tony Grant, Lee Briscoe, Alan Moore, Gareth Taylor.

Glen will be added to the bench and the five substitutes will come from Nik Michopoulos, Mark McGregor, Paul Weller, Glen Little, Robbie Blake and Dimitri Papadopoulos.

The multi-million pound Fulham squad do have some injuries. Some of them have been out for some time with long term injuries and these include Edwin van der Sar, Barry Hailes, John Collins and Lee Clark who are all some way from being fit.

Also out tonight are Steve Marlet who has a medial ligament injury to his right knee and Alain Goma who strained a hamstring a week ago in their win against West Brom.

Martin Djetou will play despite a mouth injury. He has severe bruising to the roots of some of his teeth but has been given the all clear to play. He will join Sylvain Legwinski who returned from injury against Spurs.

Apart from that there are no clues to who will actually line up for Fulham.

Graham Poll will again be the referee, you can click HERE for more on him and HERE for more on Fulham.

With the Football Association once again touting a Fulham victory we can not only upset the odds but hit the governing body of our game hard by reaching the last eight.

Come on you Clarets
