Fulham Manager Martin Jol cut a disappointed figure after the Whites went out of the Capital One Cup at the Second Round stage on Tuesday night.

A second-half penalty from Gary Madine secured a 1-0 win for Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough to send the Whites out of the competition.

Speaking afterwards, Jol admitted that the Owls had thoroughly deserved their victory.

"We made five changes but we had enough to cause them problems so it was disappointing," Jol told the official website.

"We mixed it around a little but we struggled to get going in the first half.

"Then we lost the goal and we stepped up towards the end but we just didn't have enough."

Jol also confirmed post-match that the Club has accepted a bid for Mousa Dembele from Tottenham Hotspur. The player is currently undergoing a medical.
