Fulham face a trip to Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium 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 ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in February 2008, the Boro carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Premier League match.
