FootyMAD's Tottenham Hotspur match preview

Last updated : 30 January 2004 By Footymad Previewer
History of the Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Tottenham Hotspur at Loftus Road (temporary) on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 12 of the 27 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 5.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Loftus Road (temporary) was just last season, in September 2002, as the Cottagers squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 3-2 in a Premiership match.

Fulham have an excellent home record, winning five and losing just one of the last six games. A total of 10 goals have been scored by the Cottagers in those games, with 4 conceded.

In complete contrast to Fulham, Tottenham H. are having a torrid time on their travels, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Spurs have conceded 10 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Fulham's 31 points from 22 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 7th position. Tottenham H. see themselves just below half way in the Barclaycard Premiership, showing a record of 27 points from their 22 games played so far,
