Fulham vs Reading
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Fulham continued their push for the direct promotion with a super important 0-1 victory over the in-form Sheffield Wednesday side at Hillsborough. It was the red-hot Aleksandar Mitrovic who maintained his spell of amazing form to bag the match-winner late in the second half. Since Cardiff City fell 0-1 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers, the gap between them and Fulham has been reduced down to two points (the Bluebirds have a game in hand, though).
Slavisa Jokanovic and his men will have a nice chance to keep the streak going and make it four victories on the trot on Tuesday when Reading are about to arrive to the capital. The Royals have probably made a decisive step in securing the survival in the second tier on Saturday when they saw off Preston North End 1-0 at Madejski Left winger Modou Barrow made the difference netting his tenth goal of the season. However, Reading have been struggling badly on travels recently. They’ve lost there on the bounce away from Madejski in the Championship, conceding three goals in each of these losses in the process.
Given they are now about to come face to face with one of league’s best strikers at the moment, one can hardly be optimistic about Reading’s chances to avoid a defeat here. We will also add that Fulham’s defensive line has shown massive signs of improvements recently. The hosts have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the Championship.
Fulham vs Reading: Head-to-head
