Cardiff City travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham this Wednesday hoping to end the six consecutive game defeats run in the EFL Championship whereas the hosts look to extend on their impressive victory from the QPR match last time out.
Fulham came to this campaign with an impressive start but a dragged back performance before the international break has been witnessed in the camp. Marco Silva’s men suffered a humbling 4-1 defeat against Coventry City when they locked horns at the Coventry Building Society Arena before the international break.
Fulham bounced back to winning ways last time out when they claimed an emphatic 4-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers. Fulham have now collected 23 points from the 12 fixture matches played to this point and have lost three times in that run, currently placed in the third position five points adrift of league leaders Bournemouth.
It’s important to state that, Fulham always scores at home and more often than not they win and score several goals.
On the other hand, Mick McCarthy, the Cardiff city manager is looking to keep his job having had a poor performance in the league at far and are down near the relegation zone. With 11 points from 12 games, the Bluebirds are currently 20th in the standings, three points above the relegation zone.
The visitors have failed to win any points in the preceding 6 matches and they now come to this match from a 1-3 defeat against Swansea at the Swansea.com Stadium. The bluebirds have a relatively poor defensive side and they have shipped 22 goals so far. They will have a difficult time defending against a brilliant Fulham attack in this fixture.
