Fulham's £11million striker Ross McCormack eased the pressure on boss Felix Magath with the only goal of the Cottagers' 1-0 Capital One Cup victory at Brentford.

The forward latched onto Chris David's defence-splitting through ball to slide a low shot into the far corner to settle a hard-fought west London derby.

Pearson could play son

Boss Nigel Pearson could hand a Leicester debut to son James as he makes wholesale changes to face Shrewsbury.

Youngsters Jak McCourt and Michael Cain could also feature.

Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Hamer, Pearson, Konchesky, Wasilewski, Schlupp, Moore, Morgan, King, Hammond, McCourt, Cain, Albrighton, Knockaert, Mahrez, Taylor-Fletcher, Ulloa, Nugent, Wood.

For the second time in three days Jeff Hendrick proved to be Derby's man on the spot, grabbing the second-half goal which broke Carlisle's brave resistance and secured a 2-0 win in the Capital One Cup first-round tie at Brunton Park.

Hendrick, who netted the winner in Derby's Championship opener on Saturday, was unmarked at the far post when he headed in Will Hughes' cross, and Derby secured victory in added time when Chris Martin sidefooted a right-wing cross home from six yards.
