Fulham Preview – Can the Cottagers end unwanted winless run?

Marco Silva’s Fulham recently went on an incredible seven-game winning streak in the Championship to fire their way to the top of the table. However, since a 4-1 victory over Barnsley in November, the Cottagers have failed to win in five.

Fulham picked up consecutive draws with Derby County, Preston North End, Bournemouth and Luton Town before suffering a shock 1-0 home reverse to Sheffield United on Monday night. The defeat to the Blades was their first reverse since losing 4-1 at Coventry City on 2nd October.

Our betting prediction:
Fulham to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1218 GMT, Friday 24 December)

Having not tasted victory in over a month, Fulham will be hungry for success in this one. Despite their wobbly form, the leaders should be too strong for struggling Birmingham on Boxing Day.

Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues cause an unlikely upset?

Lee Bowyer’s Birmingham City are in 17th place with 27 points to their name. So far, the Blues have won seven, drawn six and lost ten of their 23 Championship matches. They have scored 22 and shipped 30.

Birmingham have been in poor form of late, winning just one of the last seven. They have taken a mere point from the last nine on offer and were hammered 4-0 by in-form Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park last time out.

Fulham vs Birmingham City Betting Advice

This will be the third meeting between Fulham and Birmingham already this season. In the Carabao Cup back in August, goals from Jay Stansfield and Antonee Robinson gave the Whites a 2-0 win at St Andrew’s. Fulham then ran out 4-1 winners in Birmingham in the Championship in mid-September, with Aleksandar Mitrovic (2), Denis Odoi and Harry Wilson on target.


Key Facts – Fulham vs Birmingham City Betting Tip

  • Fulham are searching for their first victory in six
  • Birmingham have picked up just one away win since August
  • The Cottagers have won four in a row against the Blues


Silva’s side have hit a sticky patch of form ahead of the busy festive period, but the Cottagers will be hoping to secure their first win in over a month on Boxing Day. Birmingham are also in poor form, and there is good value in 11/10 for the home team to win -1.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is the Championship’s top scorer with a staggering 22 goals in 22 games for Fulham this season. The Serbia international netted twice in the reverse league meeting at St Andrew’s, and Mitrovic is available at 5/2 to score the opening goal of this game.
