Fulham will be looking to progress to the next round of the FA Cup when they host Oldham Athletic at Craven Cottage on Sunday.

The Cottagers have been struggling this season in the Premier League and were on the wrong end of a 4-1 defeat to Arsenal at the weekend.

However, Claudio Ranieri will want to see his side use the match against the League Two outfit as an opportunity to restore some confidence.

And, according to a match preview by Sky Sports, the Italian manager is ready to give some of his fringe men at Fulham a chance to feature in the tie.

However, it would appear that one man could be set to make a swift return to the starting line-up.

Calum Chambers missed the game against Arsenal at the weekend due to loan restrictions.

The defender has featured prominently for the Cottagers this season and his availability will come at a timely boost for Ranieri.

Alfie Mawson is thought to miss the game with a knee injury as he continues to struggle to make an impact in west London following his summer move from Swansea City.

A win against the Boundary Park outfit could do wonders for the Premier League side’s confidence and a cup run could be exactly what they need to start putting results together.

Fulham currently remain four points from safety in the top-flight and will meet fellow strugglers Burnley next weekend.
