Craven Cottage

Fulham v Norwich Preview

Norwich City arrive at Craven Cottage this Saturday with Fulham looking to end a run of results that has seen them lose four on the bounce and also not troubling the scorers. Norwich, under the leadership of Paul Lambert, have surprised many with their progress this season and a win at Craven Cottage would take them to that magical forty point mark that, supposedly, ensures relegation is very uncertain.

Vital Quotes:

Too follow.

Fulham Team News:

Aside from the normal absentees of Grygera (knee) and Sidwell (hernia) Martin Jol will be hoping that Andrew Johnson can shake off the knock that saw him miss the defeat at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Player to watch: Pavel Pogrebnyak

Since bursting onto the scene with five goals in his first three games the Russian hasn`t had a sniff in recent weeks, time to rectify that we feel.

Norwich Team News:

Paul Lambert brings the Canaries to Craven Cottage without their top scorer Grant Holt. The bulky striker was red-carded last time out and is serving his suspension.

Lambert will be hoping that Daniel Ayala and Anthony Pilkington can pass fitness tests to be available for selection.

Player to watch: Wes Hoolahan

An under-rated midfielder who can score the odd goal or two if given half a chance.

Match Facts & Stats

Looking to end a goal drought, Fulham fans will have fond memories of the last time we entertained Norwich City, Fulham routed them 6-0 as Norwich crashed out of the Premier League.

In terms of clashes between the two in the Premier League, the new-boy status of Norwich means that this is only the fourth meeting the two sides in the Premier League.

You have to go back to 1986 to find the last time Norwich won at Craven Cottage, the Canaries triumphed 2-1 in an old Second Division fixture.

Match Prediction:

After a run of defeats the Craven Cottage faithful will be willing Fulham to take all three points. Norwich will come to play and not park the bus and it could well be an open game, but it is a game that we see Fulham winning by the odd goal in three.

Next Fixtures:

We continue our season, next weekend, with a trip to the Reebok Stadium to play Bolton Wanderers.
