This Saturday, with a traditional 15:00 hours kick-off time, Fulham welcome Southampton to Craven Cottage for a FA Cup 3rd round tie.

The Fulham support will be hoping that their club can go on a decent FA Cup run.

Ahead of the tie we`ve cobbled together some early team-news.

Starting with Fulham:

Slavisa Jokanovic will be without the services of his striker Floyd Ayite, who picked up a hamstring injury in the victory over Ipswich Town, in midweek.

This tie could see Lucas Piazon start his first game since breaking a leg in the Championship fixture away to Leeds United back in August.

Continuing with Southampton:

Our visitors will be without the trio of Jeremy Pied, Wesley Hoedt and Cedric Soares who are side-lined with leg concussion and hamstring injuries respectively.

Their striker Charlie Austen, has served a three-game suspension but is unavailable due to a hamstring problem.
