Recent respective form guides
Newcastle United's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Magpies have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Fulham's away form is none too clever either, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. Only 3 goals have been registered in this time, with 5 leaked at the wrong end.
Newcastle Utd. find themselves struggling down in 14th position in the league having picked up 29 points from their 30 matches. Fulham are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premier League with a return of just 23 points from their 30 games thus far.
