At the start of the season Fulham and West Brom were both expected to be challenging for automatic promotion. Both sides find themselves in the playoff positions after six games setting up Saturday’s clash very nicely.

Fulham Preview – Will the International break have served Fulham well as they hunt a first win in three games?

It’s always uncertain how a team will respond following relegation. That’s particularly the case dropping into the Championship. Stoke are the most recent reminder of how difficult that transition is so Scott Parker will be relatively happy with how things have gone in the early part of the campaign. As you would expect there was a large turnover of the playing squad during the summer. This is one of the biggest aspects of that transition. Six games in and Fulham find themselves in sixth spot with 10 points – leading a host of teams on the same total. That leaves them six points off the early pacesetters Swansea but with 40 games left to play it’s a good, steady start.

Looking at the Cottagers results and it’s easy to think that the international break came at a good time. Having lost on the opening day in a surprise defeat at Barnsley, Fulham won three straight games in the league and looked to be settling into their stride. The competitiveness of the Championship means there are also speed bumps along the road and that was in the shape of Nottingham Forest who won 2-1 at Craven Cottage. A 1-1 draw away to Cardiff will feel like a point earned in their latest game, though, having went behind and playing the last 20 minutes with 10 men. This will be a different sort of test for them on Saturday.

West Brom Preview – Can West Brom find a result to continue impressive unbeaten start to the season?

Relegation is not the only thing from a previous season that can scar a team. West Brom had to suffer the heartbreak of losing on penalties in the playoffs as the climax of last season which would have meant a long summer. The club appointed Slaven Bilic to be their permanent manager and at the time it was deemed to be a really positive hire. Six games into this campaign and that feeling has only grown. The Baggies have yet to taste in the Championship under their new manager. A total of 12 points has them well placed and the expectation will be they can continue picking up results to challenge for the top two.

A 2-1 victory away to Forest got things off to a perfect start under the former West Ham manager before an underwhelming draw at home to Millwall. Another good away victory followed at newly promoted Luton before a pair of 1-1 draws at home to Reading and away at Derby – West Brom equalised in the closing stages of both those games. Bilic’s men fell behind in the last match at home to Blackburn but came back once again, eventually prevailing 3-2 for a first home win of the season.

Key-Facts – Fulham v West Brom

  • Scot Parker will feel there is more to come from his Fulham team and will hope the international break has come at a good time
  • It’s been an impressive start to life at West Brom for Slaven Bilic who has yet to taste defeat in the league
  • All seven of West Brom’s games this season have seen both teams scoring

Fulham v West Brom Betting Advice

On paper this looks a really attractive game with two squads who have plenty of attacking quality in their ranks. The results for both teams further indicate that this should be a really entertaining match on Saturday. Fulham and West Brom have both scored 10 goals in those six games and the two managers set their teams up to play attacking football. Saturday’s game will be the first big game for both teams against an opponent expected to challenge for promotion.

All seven of West Brom’s games this season have had both teams scoring, including their League Cup defeat to Millwall. Fulham, on the other hand, have had three of their games ending in a similar way. Four of the last five meetings have also seen both teams netting and it looks a likely outcome again.
