Fulham host Blackpool at Craven Cottage in the third round of the FA Cup.

Two sides struggling in their respective divisions, Fulham and Blackpool, face each other at Craven Cottage in the FA Cup third round.

Fulham won only their second Premier League game in 13 attempts on New Year's Day with a 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Blackpool are without a win in four in the Championship, most recently being held 0-0 at home by Hull City.

Mark Schwarzer and Damien Duff are likely to be fit enough to return, and Martin Jol might look to rest one or two key players, such as Bryan Ruiz and Dimitar Berbatov.

Blackpool will likely line up with a full-strength team, with goalkeeper Matt Gilks hoping to remain in the form that kept Hull at bay.

Recent form

Fulham: WLLDLW

Fulham: Stockdale; Kelly, Hughes, Senderos, Briggs; Duff, Sidwell, Baird, Frei; Richardson; Rodallega

Blackpool: Gilks; Eardley, Broadfoot, Baptiste, Crainey; Osbourne, Sylvestre, Basham; Ince, Taylor-Fletcher, Thomas

Sports Mole says: 2-1
