Fulham have been sitting quietly just outside the Championship top-six for much of the season, however they have now made their move and following an excellent run they now sit securely in the play-offs as we head towards the business end of the campaign.
Indeed the Cottagers are without doubt the in-form side in the division with their last four outings ending in emphatic victories. 3-1 wins over Ipswich Town, Norwich City and Aston Villa were followed by a 4-1 thrashing of promotion-hopefuls Huddersfield Town on Saturday and we see no reason to believe that this winning run will end when they welcome local rivals Brentford to Craven Cottage this weekend.
It all seemed to happen so suddenly. Slavisa Jovanovic’s men were, until this month, something of a mixed bag and they didn’t look likely to mount a late challenge on the play-off places. Indeed following their 4-2 demolition by Derby County earlier this month it looked as though any promotion ambitions would have to be put on hold until next season.
That certainly isn’t the case now and given that seventh-placed Leeds United appear to have hit a sticky patch with just a single point in their last three outings, Fulham will be confident of securing for themselves another vital win as they distance themselves further from the Whites this weekend.
For their part, Brentford will certainly provide tough opposition for the hosts and following their 3-1 win over QPR last week they will be optimistic about their chances of managing something for their efforts on Saturday, however we’ll be going for a Fulham victory on Saturday with an away goal thrown in for good measure.
