Games for the Weekend 13/03

Our only home game for March is a Friday evening kick off against local(ish) rivals Brentford.

Fulham v Brentford

In other circumstances an away draw at Bristol would have been a good result, especially after going a goal behind, but if we’re aiming for automatic promotion it must be seen as 2 points dropped? Having said that we played well and it looks as if Captain Cairney is back to his best, Tom had his best game in an age, lets hope he continues.

Brentford are scoring goals for fun 5-0 against Wednesday, they also beat Hull 1-5 earlier in February, our defence will have to be on top of their game Friday evening.

Brentford are another team who like playing us, they’ve won 5, drawn 3 and only lost 2 against us in recent games. They are currently on 60 points, 4 behind us, so we could stretch that gap to 7 and move ourselves closer to West Brom and Leeds.

Games for the weekend 07/03

This weekend we travel down to Ashton Gate to take on Bristol City for the early kick-off of 12:30.

Bristol City v Fulham

Our win last week end puts us 9 points clear of 7th place, which funnily enough is Bristol City, so at this point in the season we look OK for at least a top six place. Forest, who drew their Monday evening game against Middlesbrough with a last-gasp equaliser, play on Friday evening against Millwall, a win by 2 clear goals would see them leap-frog us into 3rd, at least until after our game, a win or a draw would keep us ahead of them.

AK47 and Cyrus Christie were both impressive coming on as substitutes, Cyrus will almost certainly start and AK surely must be close to starting a game?

Bristol City are a bit of a bogey team, we’ve had only 2 wins, with 5 losses and 1 draw.

Games for the weekend 29/02

This weekend we welcome Preston North End to the Cottage for a 3 o’clock kick-off.

Fulham v Preston North End

So after a “last-minute” winner against Swansea we’re back to winning ways at the Cottage, where would we be without Mitro?

Preston NE suffered a 2-0 loss at West Brom, no shame there, and are currently on a bit of a roll, sitting currently in 6th, if they were to win they’d still be a point behind us.

Our record against Preston is very good, 4 wins, 1 loss and 2 draws, should we win, and in the unlikely event Hull were to beat Leeds, we’d be 2 points behind 2nd place.

Games for mid-week 26/02

Yet another mid-week game, this time we welcome Swansea City to the Cottage.

Fulham v Swansea City

Well a draw away to Derby wasn’t a bad result but with the gap back to 5 points we needed more.
Swansea had a comfortable(?) 3-1 win against Huddersfield and are pressing for the play-offs and with our inconsistent form they’ll be looking forward this game.

Recent results against Swansea include 3 wins, 5 losses and 1 draw.

Games for the Weekend 21/02

For this game we travel up to Derby County for a Friday evening game.

Derby v Fulham

Well, the game against Barnsley is one to forget.
At the weekend Derby had a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield, so they had a better day than us.

Historically we’re very even against Derby, 4 wins, 5 losses and 5 draws and surely we can’t play as badly two game in a row?

Games for the Weekend 15/02

This Saturday we invite Barnsley to the Cottage

Fulham v Barnsley

Well the mid-week game didn’t go quite as planned, at least we didn’t loose and Mitro scored his 21st, so not all bad?

I worry that not taking the chance to gain the automatic promotion place will come back to haunt us, it’s so close at the top of the league and it would have been boost for us and a dent to Leeds’ confidence slipping out of the top two, still there’s always the next game!

“in theory” we should be comfortable this game however, thats what I thought the first game of the season when Barnsley scored their only win over us, we’ve won the 4 other games against them.

Games for mid-week 02/02

We make the short across South London to the New Den to take on Millwall at their place.

Millwall v Fulham

We enjoyed our trip to Blackburn, wasn’t that the first time we’ve won there since the early eighties? Isn’t good that Mitro’s back, that was number 20 in the league, he must be a good bet for 30 for the season?
So we’re currently only outside the automatic promotion positions on goal difference, who’d have guessed that back in November?
It’s funny if results go “our way” we could be in 2nd, if they don’t we could be 5th, Tuesday evenings Brentford v Leeds and Forest v Charlton will be results to keep an eye on!

Millwall’s gave West Brom a good game on Sunday even though they lost, by all accounts the pitch wasn’t very good so that might be a leveller?

We’ve a reasonable record against Millwall, the game earlier this season we played the best football I’ve seen in quite some time, with 4 wins and a loss and a draw. If we come close to replicating the form we had in the earlier game and/or of the game in our promotion season then we should have an enjoyable evening, regardless of the result I’m sure it’ll be a good game.

Games for the Weekend 08/02

We’re on our travels again, this weekend were off to Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers v Fulham

Well we hung-on after a fantastic start on Saturday, those first 30-35 minutes were some of the best I’ve seen at the Cottage this season, the second half we managed to hang-on, at some points in this season we wouldn’t have.
Really good news that both Mitro and AK47 were back for the game and with Bobby Decordova-Reid scoring one of the best goals I’ve seen for some time, things look better on the attacking front.
As for defence the addition of Michael Hector has made a “chalk and cheese” difference to the back four, if only he could have started at the beginning of the season.

Blackburn are on a bit of a run themselves, they drew with Middlesborough at the weekend, beat QPR at home, beat Wednesday 0-5 away and drew with Preston NE.
Our results against Rovers is quite even with 5 wins, 8 loses and 6 draws so if history is anything to go by it’ll be a close game.
