Fulham vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 6 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
One of the most appealing clashes of mid-week’s round is set to be played at Craven Cottage where Fulham are about to host promotional rivals Sheffield United on Tuesday evening. Both teams will come into the game high on confidence after most recent successes and it will be very interesting to see which of the two will continue the winning thread here.
The Cottagers were, unlike their counterparts, in action at the weekend when they picked up a super-important 1-2 victory over Derby County at iPro Stadium. The win has seen Slavisa Jokanovic’s side jump over the Rams to clinch the fourth place in the standings and come only five points adrift of the second-placed Cardiff City (direct promotion).
One of the main catalysts for the rise in form is Jokanovic’s compatriot Aleksandar Mitrovic who has been fantastic since joining the team from Newcastle United this January. The Serbian striker scored his third goals in six appearances when he broke the deadlock at iPro Stadium and he will no doubts be the main target in the final third here against the Blades.
The visitors saw their clash against relegation strugglers Burton Albion postponed meaning they should have had more time to rest ahead of an important trip to the capital. Chris Wilder’s men have generally been enjoying a fine form lately winning three of last four league outings.
Fulham vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head
Sheffield United lead the head to head tie by three wins ahead of their 24th encounter with Fulham.
The Lilywhites have, however, been more successful at Craven Cottage where they’ve won five and lost four of 12 H2H meetings.
The clash from late-November at Bramall Lane offered as many as nine goals as Fulham came on top 4-5 at the end.
