Fulham were left counting the cost of their 1-0 win over Brentford tonight in the Capital Cup after two midfielders were taken off with injuries.

Captain Scott Parker didn’t return to the fray after the half-time interval having taken knock to his ankle after a late challenge. Parker’s injury isn’t though to serious enough to keep him out of Saturday’s Championship clash with Cardiff at Craven Cottage, but there is greater concern over the man who replaced him. Mark Fotheringham, the former Norwich and Notts County midfielder, lasted little more than twenty minutes before hurting his hip in a challenge and he will be sent for a scan, according to Fulham manager Felix Magath.

Scott Parker twisted his ankle but Fotheringham might be worse. He has to have a scan on his hip and he’s very unhappy.
