Fulham prepare to entertain Tottenham Hotspur at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 12 of the 28 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 6.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in January 2004, the Cottagers carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premiership match.
