Ayite to miss Cottagers' cup clash

Fulham winger Floyd Ayite is set to miss the visit of Southampton in the FA Cup.

Ayite limped off with a suspected hamstring injury during the 4-1 victory over Ipswich on Tuesday and could face another spell on the sidelines.

But fellow wide man Lucas Piazon is in line for his first start since August after a broken leg.

David Button is set for a run-out in goal while boss Slavisa Jokanovic will be considering further changes.

Defender Jeremy Pied has been added to Southampton's injury list ahead of their third-round clash at Craven Cottage.

French full-back Pied, who played the full 90 minutes as Saints lost to Crystal Palace on Tuesday, has suffered a leg problem, joining fellow defenders Wesley Hoedt (concussion) and Cedric Soares (hamstring) on the sidelines.

Top scorer Charlie Austin has completed a three-game ban but will continue to be absent due to a hamstring issue.
