Fulham set to make changes for Sheffield Wednesday trip
Tuesday 28 August 2012
Martin Jol will rotate his squad for Fulham's Capital One Cup second round tie against Sheffield Wednesday tonight.
The Cottagers have made an encouraging start to the season, thrashing Norwich 5-0 on the opening day of the campaign and almost snatching a point at Manchester United on Saturday.
Jol is confident he has the depth in his squad to field an alternative line-up at Hillsborough.
"There will be a few changes. We have 18 or 19 players," Jol said.
"They are good enough to come in for some others. I can give three or four players a rest."
Centre Aaron Hughes predicts Fulham are going to enjoy a successful season.
"We did really well against Norwich and there's a lot we can take from the Man Utd game too," Hughes told the club's official website, http://www.fulhamfc.com.
"It's been a good start, but there's a long way to go yet.
"We're solid at the back, have players with a lot of creativity in midfield and up front we can score goals - it's a nice balance.
"With that in mind, looking ahead, we could have a good season."
