History of the West Bromwich Albion v Fulham fixture

Fulham pack their bags to visit West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was within the last three years, in August 2002, the Baggies carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Premiership match.
