nd dur­ing the English FA Cup third round foot­ball match at Craven Cot­tage in Ful­ham, west Lon­don on Satur­day... Photo: AFP team se­lec­tion, but in a sea­son of Pre­mier League strug­gle, this re­sult will of­fer hope that the club has a new goalscorer on the way through.

With his side rooted to the foot of the Pre­mier League, seven points from safety and with a trip to Manch­ester United up next, Farke made eight changes from their 1-1 draw with Crys­tal Palace on New Year's Day, with only Sam Byram, Christoph Zim­mer­mann and Todd Cantwell re­tained.

But that was one less than Pre­ston boss Alex Neil, who kept only Dar­nell Fisher and Ben Davies from their 2-0 de­feat at Mid­dles­brough, pre­fer­ring to fo­cus on next week­end's Cham­pi­onship derby against Black­burn and their play-off push.
