Fulham face a trip to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood 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 23 and win only 9 of the 40 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2008, the Rovers carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Premier League match.

Recent respective form guides
Blackburn Rovers will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. While Rovers have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.
Fulham's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. The Cottagers's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.
Blackburn R. see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 21 points from their 21 games played so far, Fulham's 27 points from 20 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
