Fulham will not risk Simon Davies in their second leg Europa League tie against FC Vetra as the midfielder recovers from a foot injury.

The Cottagers have a commanding 3-0 lead over the Lithuanian side and victory will put them into Friday’s draw for the play-off round.

Defender Toni Kallio (Achilles) is Fulham’s only other absentee.

Thursday’s match is the first time Craven Cottage has hosted European football since 2002.

“We’re hoping that we’ll not only play in a historic match but we also get a good result and put ourselves in the draw for the next round,” Fulham boss Roy Hodgson told the club’s official website.

If Fulham can see off FC Vetra, they will have to win another two-legged play-off tie before reaching the 38-team group stage.
