Fulham Preview – Can the Cottagers take another giant leap towards the Premier League?

Fulham are sitting pretty at the top of the Championship table with a handsome 70 points to their name. Bournemouth have games in hand, but the Cottagers are nine points clear of the second-place Cherries. More importantly, they are 11 points above third.

Fulham have responded with two hard-fought wins after suffering a surprise home loss to Huddersfield Town. They edged past Peterborough United with a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage in their last one at home. Then last weekend, Aleksandar Mitrovic was on target in a 1-0 win over Cardiff City in Wales.

Our betting prediction:
Fulham to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 0901 GMT, Friday 4 March)

Fulham have been very hard to stop on their own patch this season, and the Londoners should add another three points to their tally with a home victory on Saturday.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Mowbray’s troops build on QPR victory?

Blackburn Rovers have had fine season up until now. They had a wobble recently, but the Blue and Whites are in fourth place with 57 points to their name. Overall, Rovers have won 34, drawn nine and lost nine.

Blackburn ended a five-game winless run in the Championship with a crucial home success over fellow promotion hopefuls Queens Park Rangers last Saturday. It was a tight game, which was settled by Reda Khadra’s late free-kick.

Fulham vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Advice

Fulham put in the performance of the Championship season when the teams met at Ewood Park back in November. Jan Paul van Hecke was sent off for Rovers on the half-hour mark and Fulham were ruthless, with goals from Neeskens Kebano (2), Harry Wilson (2), Rodrigo Munoz (2) and Aleksandar Mitrovic sealing a 7-0 away win.

Fulham are unbeaten in five against Rovers, winning four and drawing one. Blackburn’s last victory in this fixture was a 3-0 home league success back in the 2015-16 Championship season.


Key Facts – Fulham vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tip

Mowbray’s Rovers will be buoyed after last Saturday’s vital victory over QPR, but we can see the leaders being too strong for their guests at the weekend. The Cottagers have won without conceding on 11 occasions in this season Championship – you can get 6/4 for the Whites to win to nil again.

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s header at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday was his 34th Championship goal of the season. Fulham’s goal-machine is priced at 11/4 to notch the opener this weekend.
