History of the Fulham v Birmingham City fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Birmingham City at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 14 of the 37 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 13.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in December 2004, with Birmingham C. inflicting a narrow 2-3 defeat upon the Cottagers in a Premiership match.
