Norwich City travel to Fulham tonight in the FA Cup to battle it out in their fourth round replay.

The two sides drew 1-1 in the original tie at Carrow Road with Robert Snodgrass scoring for the home side and Darren Bent getting his first goal since October for Fulham.

The winner of the replay tonight will face a trip to Sheffield United who knocked out Premier League side Aston Villa in the last round.

Fulham come into the game on the back of a 4-1 thumping by fellow strugglers Sunderland and will be looking to bounce back and get a cup run going. Norwich are without a win in seven games in all competitions, last winning on December 7 against West Bromwich Albion.

Tonight's match will be the third time the sides have met since Boxing Day where Fulham picked up a 2-1 win at Carrow Road.

The west London side may see the return of defender Brede Hangeland who has been out for three months after back surgery.

Rene Meulensteen praises the FA Cup and says it is a chance to utilise his squad according to BBC Sport.

Meulensteen said: "The FA Cup is a fantastic competition that I respect.

"If you look back on its history there are so many joyful moments. And nothing good comes out of losing.

"However it is a game where we have to utilise the squad, that's normal and it would be stupid not to do it."

The Canaries are likely to rotate with Luciano Becchio in contention for a starting place, however new loan signing Jonás Gutiérrez is not available.
