Fulham vs Charlton Athletic: Preview, Predicted Lineups and Prediction
Venue: Craven Cottage
Kick-off: 03:00 PM GMT / 10:00 AM EST
Just when it looked like Fulham would be able to drag themselves away from relegation trouble following the 3-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers, they went on to suffer a bitterly disappointing 3-0 defeat at the hands of relegation rivals Blackburn Rovers last weekend.
The defeat means that Fulham remain perilously close to the relegation zone and it will be of paramount importance for Slavisa Jokanovic’s men to claim all three points when they welcome fellow strugglers Charlton Athletic to Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Fulham Probable Lineup: Lonergan; Amorebieta, Ream, Burn, Madl; Fredericks, Kacaniklic, O’Hara, Cairney; McCormack, Dembele
Charlton Athletic News
Charlton Athletic claimed a positive 0-0 draw against Cardiff City last weekend but given their current predicament, the Addicks need three points rather than just one in order to stand a chance of avoiding the drop this season.
Now Charlton prepare to travel to Craven Cottage to square off against an equally desperate Fulham side and manager Jose Riga could sense an opportunity to claim all three points from the clash.
Charlton Athletic Probable Lineup: Henderson; Teixeira, Solly, Fox, Lennon; Bergdich, Jackson, Cousins, Ghoochannejhad; Guðmundsson, Makienok
Fulham have remained unbeaten in their last four competitive encounters against Charlton Athletic but the last two meetings between the sides have ended in draws, suggesting that the game on Saturday will also be a close run thing.
Fulham have the home advantage as well as arguably a stronger squad though and they should be able to pile more misery on Charlton this weekend.
