It’s the team that most of us expected for Fulham’s first European fixture of the summer. Chris Baird comes in for Dickson Etuhu as the Nigerian midfielder’s partner is expecting a baby. Dempsey and Gera on the flanks and, of course, Brede Hangeland starts at the heart of the Fulham defence. New signings Riise and Kelly are on the bench.

FK VETRA (4-4-2): Valincius; Paulauskas, Borovskij, Jankauskas, Kijanskas; Ngapounou, Rasanauskas, Vezevcius, Masitsev; Grigalevicius, Grigaitis.

FULHAM (4-4-2): Schwarzer; Pantsil, Konchesky, Hughes, Hangeland; Baird, Murphy, Gera, Dempsey; Zamora, A. Johnson. Subs: Stockdale, Kelly, Seol Ki-Hyeon, Nevland, Kamara, Riise, E. Johnson.
