Fulham v Leeds - Team/News/Reports/Ratings

Post by 1964white » Mon Apr 02, 2018 7:57 am

Screenshot 2018-04-02 at 08.23.43.png

Heckingbottom will be without Adam Forshaw, possibly until the end of the season after picking up a calf injury, an injury the 26 year old had when we signed him from Boro. Cooper, De Bock, Ayling, Shaughhnessy & Roberts are still on crutches too

Dallas performed well at RB with Hecky switching Berardi to LB to cope with the threat of Ameobi v Bolton, defensively we looked much better with Gaetano back in the LB role

Can't see Hecky making too many changes from the team that started last Friday

From a Fulham prospective

I expect their 14 goal winger Sessegnon to return after being rested at Norwich

Kamara and Norwood are also options for boss Jokanovic, who said his side looked tired in the game at Carrow Road

Mitrovic has been on fire with seven goals in eight game since signing on-loan from Newcastle. Class signing ambitious clubs make when required

Tom Cairney has had a hand in six goals in his past six league matches against Leeds (four goals, two assists), scoring exactly once in each of his past four matches against the Whites.

Fulham coach has so many options where as we have very little to offer outside our first eleven

Match facts

The past five league meetings between these sides have ended as draws, with the reverse fixture ending goalless this season.

Leeds are unbeaten in their past three league visits to Craven Cottage (W1 D2).

Slavisa Jokanovic has yet to lose against Leeds as manager, although four of his five encounters have been draws (W1).

Paul Heckingbottom, meanwhile, has lost all four of his Championship matches against Fulham, including two this season with Barnsley; the last manager to lose three Championship games against the same opponent in a season was Lee Clark in 2014/15 against Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds have lost 17 of their past 24 away league games in April (W4 D3), with their most recent victory coming in April 2016 away at Birmingham.

Can we get anything out of this game?

Even if things were going well this would be a very tough fixture, can't see anything but a defeat I'm afraid.

Good chance of a draw if we play as well as we have in the last 2. Clean sheet would be great

Desperately need to keep a clean sheet, then we may get lucky and nick a goal, result :-D however if we let them score in the first 20mins I can see this Fulham team scoring a bagful against us :shock:

My hope is a win, my gut says a draw but my head thinks it could be a step backwards and a loss is By Heck doesn’t get his tactics right, at this point I’d take draw MOT

Just want to see more of Pearce, I know what Dallas can do. I'd have no problem with Dallas starting though.

It certainly would be a test for young Pearce with the calibre of the Fulham wingers

I thought Berardi had one of his best games of late at LB last Friday

I thought the Bolton goal was actually well worked.

Unconvinced it would make any difference as Phillips has been really poor when he's played in 2018

As that position is Anita's main role... I would be inclined to pair him and Vierra in CM

Klich would have been perfect around about now...6 foot plus strong centre mid with great passing

True, but dont think O'Kane has had a good game since August.

Prefer Rey over both of them.
