West Bromwich Albion lost 3-2 at home to Newcastle in their last league outing, to make a run of three matches without a win.
In their last five matches, West Brom have won one, drawn one, and lost three, earning 4 points from a potential 15 on offer. WBA have scored 8 goals and conceded 12 in these matches, as they currently sit at the bottom of the league ladder in 20th place.
West Bromwich will be without Craig Beattie (groin), Jonathan Greening (knee), Ishmael Miller (knee), Neil Clement (knee), and Jonas Olsson (knee), although Luke Moore, Ryan Donk, Jay Simpson may all be available for this match.
West Brom beat Fulham 1-0 at the Hawthorns earlier this season. Fulham currently hold the 4th best home record in the league, whilst West Brom have the 2nd worst away record.
Therefore, in spite of Fulham’s disappointing 3-0 loss against Manchester United on Wednesday, and despite the fact that they will have had less time to prepare and recover for this match than their opponents, the Cottagers should still go into this match against West Bromwich as favourites for victory.
