Following Friday’s dramatic 10-man win over the Canaries of Norwich City, Fulham turn their attention to a home fixture against Aston Villa. Whilst Friday’s victory was a precious one, wins for Wednesday and Reading, as well as a point for Leeds against Newcastle means that the pressure for wins remains firmly on the Whites.
Whilst optimism remains high in the camp at Craven Cottage, there’s a pervading feeling that something hasn’t been quite right in the last four games that the Whites have played.
Fulham leapfrogged Sheffield Wednesday into the playoff places on Saturday afternoon, but a tough game against Derby County has the potential to pull the Whites back down to Earth incredibly quickly if they're not firing on all cylinders this evening.
As you might have heard on this week's podcast, next week we're opening the phone lines to talk about loads of things related to Fulham. If you'd be interested, fill in the form below and we'll be in touch with those who are to appear on the show, by email next week!
Tuesday's crushing last-gasp disappointment means that Fulham remain outside the playoff places, but that will change if the Whites can return to winning ways against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
The fabled game in hand has finally arrived at the Cottage and with Saturday's results all falling the way of the Whites, Fulham can finally breach the top six with a win over Blackburn Rovers.
Black and White is the order of the day as Fulham travel up to the North East to face the mighty Newcastle United, who sit three points clear at the top of the league, and seemingly destined for a return to the Premier League.
As many of you will have heard on last night's podcast, I thought it would be a good idea to try and rank the run ins that the playoff contenders have left, to compare them.
It's a case of all the 'Whites' in a week as Preston North End's visit to the Cottage is followed up by their similarly attired cousins from Yorkshire.
