Fulham News

Fulham have managed seven points from their last four matches and the decent run has seen the Cottagers allay fears of relegation for the time being.

However, Fulham cannot afford to relax as of yet as a lot can change within the next few weeks and Slavisa Jokanovic’s men will surely be intent on continuing their good run of form with a positive result when high flying Middlesbrough pay a visit to Craven Cottage this weekend.

Fulham Probable Lineup: A. Lonergan, F. Amorebieta, M. Madl, C. Baird, L. Garbutt, D. Burn, J. O’Hara, T. Cairney, R. Fredericks, R. McCormack, M. Dembélé

Middlesbrough News

Middlesbrough managed to end their run of five matches without a single victory following a 3-1 triumph over Cardiff City in midweek and the positive result means that Aitor Karanka’s men now have placed themselves in a very good position to earn promotion.

Boro have a few games in hand over their rivals in the table but need to take advantage by going on a good run of form over the next few game weeks and claiming a victory over strugglers Fulham this weekend will be seen as a must win by Karanka.

Middlesbrough Probable Lineup: D. Konstantopoulos, G. Friend, T. Kalas, D. Fry, S. Downing, G. Leadbitter, Nsue, A. Adomah, G. Ramírez, A. Forshaw, J. Rhodes

Prediction

While Middlesbrough are not in the best of forms at the moment, the recent victory would have given them a lot of confidence and they should be placed as favourites for this weekend’s clash.

Fulham are sure to make it tough but Boro seem to getting back to their best and should be able to claim another three points from the game.

Fulham 1 – 3 Middlesbrough
