Recent respective form guides

Fulham need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Cottagers have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Reading's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Royals have hit 8 goals, 16 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Fulham find themselves struggling down in 14th position in the league having picked up 9 points from their 11 matches. Reading see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 13 points from their 11 games played so far,
