Fulham vs Preston
English Football League Championship
Date: Saturday, 4th March 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
Fulham are back in the promotional contest after Sheffield Wednesday lost two games on the bounce. The Lilywhites now trail only by five points and have a game in hand which makes the dream more than achievable for Slavisa Jokanovic and his men.
Preston also have dreams of their own as well. Even though the team had so many ups and downs throughout the season, they are a single point below Fulham at the moment.
The Lilywhites have been lethal in the final third lately. The team grabbed three wins in last five league fixtures mainly thanks to impressive attacking displays.
Chris Martin and Tom Cairney lead the deadly linuep of attackers having combined 17 goals so far in the season. Fulham ended three-win streak with a 2-2 draw with Cardiff City on Saturday. The team netted as many as 10 goals during the process.
Preston North End
Preston North End also have their own weapons in the final third in the likes of Jordan Hugill and Callum Robinson who combined the total of 18 goals so far in the season.
The team has been undefeated in last five league matches. Simon Grayson will, however, be worried ahead of the visit to Craven Cottage since his lads failed to score a single goal in last three games on the road.
Fulham vs Preston North End: Head to head
Preston lead the head to head tie by a single win, but Fulham won each of the last two meetings with the same 1-2 scoreline.
Both of the last two games took place at Deepdale. It is important to note that each of the last four encounters between the two sides ended with the option of both teams scoring.
Fulham vs Preston North End: Prediction
We can easily see a goal fest here because both teams fancy attacking football. The hosts are somewhat closer to getting three points because they have the home court advantage and the momentum after winning three consecutive fixtures at Craven Cottage.
