Fulham vs Swansea Match preview
Winless in their recent three league fixtures have caused troubles for the Fulham dugout. However, the host has kept 11 clean sheets in the league so far. Also, they are at a better place in the table than their opponents, Swansea.
Swansea won 3-1 at home in their last time out in the campaign to end a five-game winless run including two losses in it. Meanwhile, Fulham will be on the back of a 1-1 draw on the road against Derby in their previous Championship fixture.
With a six-point deficit, the Swans are at a backhand in the match, especially without the home ground advantage. Their performance on the road has not been healthy this season. To make things worse, the Swans have won only one of their last ten away fixtures.
In addition to that, Swansea has not built a bigger record away from home. They are without a win on the road in their last six matches. To make things worse, the 0-1 win against Luton in late December last year was their previous away win.
In sharp contrast, Fulham has won seven and lost three in their recent ten home matches. They did end their home run following a 0-3 loss to Barnsley. But we can count on the Cottagers to make a comeback in the league.
Fulham vs Swansea Prediction
Fulham has lost at home only five times in their 17 attempts this season in the Championship. Following their past three setbacks at Craven Cottage, Fulham has responded by winning their next home clash.
So, we can hope for a certain comeback from the Cottagers in the next match too as they lost their prior home match. Furthermore, they possess one of the strongest Championship home records in the season with 10 wins in 17 home matches.
It has to be noted that, the Swans have won only five of their 17 Championship away games so far. Eight of their away fixtures have ended in a draw. So, we can expect the visitors to have less impact on the game at Craven Cottage.
Hence, the punters can go with the home team to be the favorites to win in the clash. As such, Fulham is probably closer to taking all three points from the clash. Also, we can expect both teams to score as three of their recent five h2h clashes have carried on that tradition.
