Fulham

Slavisa Jokanovic can be more than happy with the impressive attacking displays his team showed over the last couple of weeks.

The Lilywhites trail to Sheffield Wednesday by five points, but they have a game in hand and the potential victory over Leeds would be a major confidence boost for the team ahead of the final challenges.

Leeds United

The visitors travel to London with three wins and a draw in last four league encounters. Gary Monk’s side took a huge victory over the Owls two weeks ago. They managed to back it up with a commanding 1-3 victory over Birmingham City at St. Andrew’s on Friday evening.

Chris Wood has been on fire lately. The striker from New Zealand is now topping the goalscorers list in Championship as he kept the good form going by netting a brace in the victory over Birmingham.

It was his fourth goal in last four appearances for Leeds and he is a must take to score anytime against Fulham at 5/4 odds.
