Fulham continue their march towards automatic promotion as they travel to Swansea City for a midweek English Championship fixture. The Swans have been in good form but face a very impressive Fulham side who are favourites to pick all the points.
Swansea have been slowly easing themselves away from trouble in the second half of the season and now have a 20-point gap over the relegation zone. Sitting just eight points off the top 10, Russell Martin’s men can also make a late push for a top half finish.
The Swans head into Tuesday’s clash with three wins from their last four Championship matches. They claimed a 3-1 victory over Coventry City in their previous fixture with Michael Obafemi netting a brace after Jamie Paterson had opened the scoring.
Swansea generally have a good record at home but tend to struggle against some of the big teams. A 2-1 loss to second placed Huddersfield Town is among their recent home defeats while they were also hammered 4-1 by promotion playoff chasing Nottingham Forest.
Fulham are getting and are well on course for automatic promotion. They remain top of the Championship and have now opened up an 11 point gap over second placed Huddersfield Town.
The Cottagers travel to Swansea of a 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers in their previous fixture with Neeskens Kebano and Harry Wilson getting the goals. That was their fifth win in their last six matches as they appear almost unstoppable in recent weeks.
Fulham also have an impressive record on their travels and are unbeaten in their last nine away matches in the Championship. Marco Silva’s men have also won their last four matches on the road, a run that includes a 7-0 victory at Reading.
