History of the Fulham v Southampton fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Southampton at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Cottagers are clearly on top, having won 15 and lost only 3 of the 29 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in December 2003, with Fulham running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Fulham's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Cottagers have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Southampton's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Saints have hit 5 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Fulham find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 5 points from their 6 matches. Southampton are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 4 points from 6 matches.
