This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Derby County and Fulham at 15:00 on Saturday, 29th March 2008 in the Premier League.
Fulham pack their bags to visit Derby County at Pride Park on Saturday 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 13 and win only 3 of the 23 games.
The previous match played between the two at Pride Park was more than three years back, in January 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a F.A. Cup match.
