FA CUP Saturday 28th January

We welcome Sunderland to the Cottage for the fourth round FA Cup tie..

Fulham v Sunderland FA Cup

This will be the first FA Cup meeting between Fulham and Sunderland since a previous fourth round tie in the 2014-15 campaign, Sunderland won 3-1 after a replay.
Our last game against Sunderland was in April 2018, we won that game 2-1 however, Sunderland have won three of their last four visits to the Cottage.
The fourth round is a “tricky” tie for Fulham having been eliminated from seven of our last eight fourth round ties, our only win was, at home, against Hull in 2016-17 when the result was 4-1.
This will be Sunderland’s first appearance in the fourth round since they beat us in 2014-15, interestingly Sunderland haven’t reached the fifth round since they’ve been outside the Premier League since 2003-04.
Tony Mowbray has faced Premier League teams in five FA Cup ties while he was the manager at West Brom, Middlesborough and Blackburn, he lost all five games.
Tony Mowbray has lost his last four games against Fulham with an aggregate score of 12-0.

Overall our recent record against Sunderland is remarkably even with 5 wins, 5 losses and 5 draws.

I would rest most of the first team and give other squad players some valuable game time, my team would be…

Games of interest for weekend 27-29/04

Fulham welcome back “Cookie” and his Sunderland team to Craven Cottage for our last home game of the season

Fulham v Sunderland

This will be our 3rd televised game in a row and the 2nd on a Friday evening, I’m sure that moving the game to a Friday will have upset many, many supporters arrangements. With the game move and Sunderland’s demotion to the 3rd tier, I can’t think of it as division one, I’m guessing that the away support will be a lot lower than it would of been, after all Sunderland’s not just around the corner is it!?

Last weeks game against Millwall showed how good we can be, if we win, tempting fate I know but I do think that we’ll get the result we need, or get a draw we’ll then beat Man City’s record of unbeaten games! not bad for little ol’ Fulham. With Cardiff loosing mid-week against Derby, their “game in hand”, the last couple of games of the ‘season proper’ are going to be really, really interesting!
