Fulham prepare to entertain Blackburn Rovers at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 36 games played, Cottagers have recorded 15 wins, and Blackburn R. have come away with 9 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was just last season, in December 2005, the Cottagers carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Fulham's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Cottagers have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Blackburn R.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Rovers have hit 5 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Fulham are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 35 points from 34 matches. Blackburn R.'s 43 points from 33 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Fulham at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Cottagers will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
