Games for mid-week 26/04

Time for the rearranged home fixture against Nottingham Forest

Fulham v Nottingham Forest

I had hoped to see another Mitro hat-trick and 3 points that would have confirmed us as Champions, oh well, I should have known that wouldn’t happen as I’ve followed Fulham for far too long?
Over on the forum bobby01 pointed out that, before yesterday, Fulham had the least yellow cards, Fulham 65, Reading & Blackpool 68, Hull 70 and Huddersfield 71, most cards Blackburn 99, Cardiff 94, M’boro 94, Stoke 88 and Bournemouth 87, yet somehow Fulham got 7 yellows, Bournemouth got 3, and Marco sent off, how could we have gone from 1.6 a game to 7? somebody needs to have a close look at the referee, wasn’t he the same ref’ who sent off Joachim Andersen and award a penalty last season? Andersen’s red card was later rescinded.
Anyhow, a least Mitro’s goal takes him closer, definitely over the line, to breaking another record and Fulham closer to 100 goals for the season.

Forest are on a really good run and will be looking for automatic promotion, they’ll be full of confidence and hoping to overtake Bournemouth for the second slot. If Bournemouth loose their remaining games (4) and Forest win 2 or theirs (4), then they’ll overtake them and join us in the Premier League next season.
However we’ll still need the points to secure/confirm Champion status, one more win and Bournemouth can only catch not overtake us, and as our goal difference is 31 more than them, then we’d be Champions.

Curent form:
Fulham – WLLWD
Forest – WWLWW

Our record against Forest is reasonably even with 6 wins, 4 losses and a draw, we won the away fixture 0-4.

Assuming no injuries, I’d give Tete another run out, my team would be…
