History of the Fulham v Middlesbrough fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Middlesbrough at Craven Cottage on Monday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Cottagers are clearly on top, winning 52.00% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in May 2006, the Cottagers carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premiership match.
