History of the Sheffield United v Fulham fixture

Fulham travel to take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 20 and win only 5 of the 31 games.

The last time the two teams met at Sheff. Utd. was back in November 2000, over five years ago, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Division One match.
