Jimmy Bullard has been ruled out of Fulham’s FA Cup third-round tie at Sheffield Wednesday through illness.

Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson will rotate his squad following a hectic festive programme of victories. He will be without Zoltan Gera, who is still troubled by a calf complaint, Andranik Teymourian, who is still out with a knee problem and Diomansy Kamara, whose latest setback in his recovery from a serious knee injury is expected to keep him out until February.
