Match Preview: Fulham vs. West Bromwich Albion

Updated: September 3, 2013

Match Date: 14 September 2013 (local time)

Venue: Craven Cottage


Fulham has the capacity to dominate in the pitch. Unfortunately, they barely convert. Meanwhile, West Brom is desperate to have its first victory this season.

With both teams struggling to survive, the match will most likely end in a stalemate.




Frustration filled the air when the Cottagers lost by a point against Newcastle United. Even manager Martin Jol cannot help but express his disappointments when the club failed to convert.
A late rally from Hatem Ben Arfa forced the squad to wave their white flag. As a result, the Cottagers are just a notch away from dropping into the relegation zone.


Jol is not alone in his disappointing view of the club. Brede Hangeland also disclosed the club’s issues in surviving the Premier League. Thus, in the upcoming match against West Bromwich, the club is left with no other choice but to secure their second victory.


West Bromwich Albion

The Baggies have a bigger problem than that of the Cottagers. Already in the relegation zone, the club has never won a match this new season.


To date, the best performance that it had was a 0-0 draw against Everton. Although it gained them a single point, this barely ensures a long stay in UK’s top-flight league.


Online betting tip: The Cottagers And The Baggies end in a draw

With both clubs in dire need of a win, expect the upcoming face-off to be a close one. Fulham, although it has the home court advantage have readily lost their last 5 encounters in their own soil.
On the other hand, West Brom hardly scored in their last 5 matches. Although, the Cottagers have a slightly better record, this does not guarantee that they get the upper-hand. Unless they work on their conversions, they might steal the spotlight and delight their supporters.


However, considering the stiff competition in the league, a draw is more likely to occur.
