Fulham vs Bristol: Preview, Prediction, Team News

Premier League player

Fulham is set to host Bristol City at the Craven Cottage stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday evening. The hosts would be looking forward to a win to reach the top of the league table.

Fulham has managed to win 1 game out of the last 5 games. However, they returned to form after defeating Reading by a mammoth scoreline of 7:0 in their last match.

Marco Silva’s men are currently in the second position with 48 points out of the 24 played. They are currently 1 point short of the top position and would look for a victory to claim the top spot.

On the other hand, Bristol City has managed to secure two wins out of the 5 matches played. Nigel Pearson’s men have been largely inconsistent for the most part of the season.

Bristol City is currently in the 15th position securing 30 points out of the 25 games played. It seems that Pearson has to take the best out of his boys to secure a win.
