Fulham were relegated from the Premier League at the end of the last season, and they certainly have set target to get back to the top flight as soon as possible. However, their impressive run came to an end with two back-to-back losses in the competition, pushing fans slightly into panic-mode.

Brentford vs Fulham Prediction
Brentford had locked horns with Cardiff the last match-day, at the former’s home. The home team struck two goals in return for just one from the guests, and thus settled for a hard-fought three points.
Meanwhile, Fulham were on the road, and the early red card they received practically took them out of contention for the win. The hosts Preston, made full use of their home advantage, as well as numerical advantage, and obtained a 2-0 lead by the start of the second half.
The guests did find the back of the net once late into the game, but were allowed another goal, and thus had to be contended with the loss.
In regards to the result of this upcoming fixture, consider that Fulham are coming from (relegated) arguably the best league in the world, and they surely score higher in the metrics of experience, exposure, and dealing with pressure.
Moreover, they have lost just four games from their previous sixteen attempts, and on the road, the team remained unbeaten in seven of their preceding nine match-ups. In addition, they are placed third in the table, and are in contention for a playoff spot at the end of the season, while their opposite number are placed outside the playoff zone.
Furthermore, after their back-to-back losses, Fulham will be hell-bent on not making it three losses in a row, and they will treating this game as a virtual final.
Considering these observations, count on the recently-relegated Fulham to avoid the loss at the least this Saturday.
However, Brentford do have the home advantage, and have found the back of the net in ten of their last thirteen games. Also, they scored a total of ten goals from their previous three home appearances.
Coupling these with the recent struggles of Fulham, and the fact that they failed to keep a clean sheet in 18 of the previous 21 road trips, the chances for goals to come from both teams are very high this game week.
