Preston North End vs Fulham
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 10th March 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).
Preston are putting serious pressure on top 6 but the team still stays inches from the play-offs. They are a good side with formidable defensive line. The team can take on any opponent but sometimes struggles to edge the games and has too many draws.
Midweek Preston made a huge leap towards the play-offs. They faced Bristol in direct confrontation for the 6th place and managed to get the victory. They opened the score in the first half going at half time with advantage. In the 67th and 69th minute the team exchanged goals to round the score at 2-1.
Fulham are in great form currently. Slavisa Jokanovic’s boys are looking very confident and are aiming high. They have not only gotten into top 6 but are pushing further. Cottagers now have a 8 points cushion over 7th place and are just 5 points behind the direct promotion places.
Last round Cottagers took a comfortable victory over Sheffield United. The team looked confident the whole time controlling the game. 2 goals from Mitrovic in the first half helped the team achieve yet another victory. Tim Cairney rounded the score to 3-0 which was the full time result.
