Fulham vs Derby County
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 17th December, 2016.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Craven Cottage, London.
Fulham play host to Derby county at the Craven Cottage, London as both sides go head to head in the championship game with either of the teams hoping to be on their toes and work hard to get those three points which would help massively for both sides. Derby county sit 5th in the table and have improved massively under Steve Mclaren while Fulham sit 10th although its just three points separating the two sides.
Fulham come into the game in good run of form and have lost just once in their last five games having won twice, drawn twice and lost once in their last five games which is certainly decent if not great. In their last game they played Rotterham and won the game 2-1 against the side sitting rock bottom in the league and need a similar or better performance this time around as well form them.
Derby county on the other end are in terrific form and have won all five games coming into this one and have improved a lot under new manager after a rather pale start to the season where they were struggling at the bottom end of the table. In their last game they played QPR and won the game 0-1 playing away from home which was a crucial win which leaves them in a play off spot.
