History of the Fulham v Portsmouth fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Portsmouth at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 10 of the 24 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 6.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in April 2006, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-3 winners in a Premiership match.
