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
