Fulham prediction

Two wins on the bounce and a nice, late surge to hopefully end the season on a high note following the second half slump.

Currently sat in eighth position, depending on results elsewhere we have an opportunity to go level with Aston Villa in sixth place but realistically we have to win out to guarantee that Inter Toto position, as whilst it is clear Portsmouth have more than one eye on the FA Cup final, Villa's final three games are winnable (although Everton this weekend will be tricky).

Team wise, defensively we are still struggling with a late decision expected on Richard Dunne, which prompted Shaleum Logan to be recalled from a loan spell at Stockport but elsewhere we are relatively 100% with key players returning to form.

As for Fulham, it is looking extremely grim and anything other than a win could see them relegated this weekend. The introduction of Roy Hodgson to replace Lawrie Sanchez hasn't paid the dividends it was hoped and a shocking run of form away from home has been their achilees heel.

Although Brian McBride and Jimmy Bullard are back in the line-up, their absence has been felt this season and their comeback has been too late in the day and their overall squad depth is light on quality with too many players not at Premier League level.

Prediction? Not a good day for Fulham as a 2-0 defeat sends them on the brink of relegation.
