Match preview: Fulham v Wednesday

17 July 2020

Wednesday are back on their travels this weekend heading to promotion hopefuls Fulham.

The Cottagers’ automatic promotion hopes are hanging by a thread after their 0-0 draw with West Brom in midweek.

Currently fourth in the table and five points adrift of second with two to play, Fulham look set for a play-off campaign.

Scott Parker’s side are in outstanding form, though, with four wins from their last five games.

Wednesday will be looking to build on back to back clean sheets. Garry Monk’s side took all three points from last weekend’s trip to the capital where they defeated QPR 3-0.

Those three goals saw the Owls jump back to the top of the chart in terms of goals scored on the road (36), before coming back to Hillsborough and drawing 0-0 with Huddersfield.

Osaze Urhoghide has been ruled out for the final two games.

Fulham: Aboubakar Kamara, Tom Cairney and Ivan Cavaleiro are all doubts for Saturday.
