History of the Fulham v Burnley fixture

Fulham play host to Burnley at Craven Cottage on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Cottagers are clearly on top, having won 24 and lost only 10 of the 44 games.

The last time the two teams met at Fulham was back in February 2003, over five years ago, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a F.A. Cup match.
