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.

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