This weekend we travel to South Wales to take on fellow Premiership ‘new boys’ Cardiff
Well the past couple of games didn’t go the way we’d hoped so this weekend we’ll be aiming to get a result against a Cardiff ream that haven’t won a game so far this season, so expect a Fulhamish result!?
I’m sure Slaviša will have spent the ‘international break’ working with the players on their defensive duties, something Colin will try to exploit.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah is unlikely to be fit, so Cyrus Christie will hope for a better performance than against Arsenal, he wasn’t as bad as some have made out however he’ll want to answer some of his critics with a performance. At this point we don’t know if Tom Cairney, Alfie Mawson or Joe Bryan will be in the squad, their inclusion can only help shore up a too leaky defence.
If Slaviša’s style of football is better than Colin’s version then this game is the one to drive our point home, last season’s fixture resulted in a 4-2 defeat, time for revenge…
