QPR told Assou-Ekotto can play in FA Cup

Recently-appointed Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has told QPR they can select Benoit Assou-Ekotto in the FA Cup but cannot field Tom Carroll.

The pair are both on season-long loans from Spurs, although an option allows the north London club to recall them this month.

Sherwood’s decision means midfielder Carroll would be eligible to play for Spurs in this season’s FA Cup if he is called back to White Hart Lane.

Rangers visit Goodison Park to play Everton in a third-round tie this Saturday.
