Martin Jol plans to name a strong Fulham line-up in Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie with Blackpool, but will have to do without several key players.

Petric: Still out through injury
Petric: Still out through injury

Mladen Petric, Damien Duff and Mahamadou Diarra are still injured so will be unable to feature for the west Londoners.

Mark Schwarzer is also sidelined due to a neck problem, while Stephen Kelly (knee) and John Arne Riise (shin) are also missing.

All eyes will be on whether Tom Ince and Alex Baptiste feature for Blackpool.

England Under-21 winger Ince and Seasiders captain Baptiste are reportedly the subject of January transfer interest from Liverpool and Leicester respectively.

The players would become cup-tied for any potential future employers if selected by boss Michael Appleton at Craven Cottage but Press Association understands the pair are expected to be included in the travelling party.

Appleton is slightly light on attacking options after Nouha Dicko and Wes Thomas returned to Wigan and Bournemouth from their respective loan spells.

Centre-back Ian Evatt (knee) and winger Matt Phillips (toe) remain on the sidelines.

Tom Barkhuizen and Barry Ferguson have returned from loan spells at Fleetwood - Blackpool's victims in last season's fifth round - but are unlikely to feature.

Fulham squad: Stockdale, Somogyi, Etheridge, Riether, Hangeland, Hughes, Senderos, Briggs, Dejagah, Baird, Sidwell, Karagounis, Kacaniklic, Frei, Richardson, Kasami, Ruiz, Rodallega, Berbatov.
