Fulham face a trip to Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 15 and win only 5 of the 28 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in November 2008, when they played out a goalless draw in a Premier League match.
