History of the Burnley v Fulham fixture

Fulham face a trip to Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 32 out of 44 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2008, the Clarets carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League Cup match.
