Fulham prepare to entertain Portsmouth at Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 11 of the 27 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 7.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was just last season, in January 2009, with Fulham running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Premier League match.
