With hopes of a Premier League return after a year of non-action, Fulham will be set to tighten their dreams as they head to Hull City at the KCOM Stadium. The match is scheduled for 11th January, with kickoff at 15:00 GMT.
Hull City is currently 9th on the table with 39 points, which is three points clear of Fulham. Coach Grant McCann has done a lot of impressive transformations for the squad ever since arrival from the Doncaster Rovers.
The opening of the January transfer window has seen one signing with two loan deals extending their spells at the club. With the time running out on the Tigers, McCann has agreed on the need for an attacking threat for the squad.
The Tigers recently confirmed the young prospects Max Sheaf and Jacob Greaves would continue their loan spell at the Cheltenham Town for the rest of the season. The duo has been impressive ever since their arrival for the Tigers.
Fulham is 5th in the Championship table with 42 points. Coach Scott Parker has had to deal with a lot of inconsistencies in the club. The opening of the transfer window has further put a cloud of doubt over the availability of top stars.
Fulham has registered two wins in their past six matches. Will McCann find an edge over Parker at the KCOM stadium given their long history?
