In a crucial game, Fulham host relegation rivals Norwich City in what will be Neil Adams’ first match in charge of the Canaries.
Victory away to Aston Villa last time out, achieved thanks to a much more potent attacking display, lifted Fulham to within just five points of their opponents ahead of this game, and their run-in looks much more favourable. What could work against Fulham is the fact that they have lost more at home than any other Premier League club, but performances have undoubtedly improved under Felix Magath.
Norwich, meanwhile, have one of the league’s poorest records on the road, but it was the club’s first home defeat since the one by Fulham on Boxing Day that accounted for Chris Hughton on Sunday. The timing of the 55-year-old’s dismissal has surprised many with just five games to go, but victory here for new boss Neil Adams should be enough to allow his side to rest a little easier.
Fulham are likely to be without record signing Kostas Mitroglou as well as winger Damien Duff, while Hugo Rodallega will be pushing for a start after scoring the winner at Villa Park.
The visitors, who have not beaten Fulham for over 25 years, are unlikely to risk Leroy Fer, who is recovering from a hamstring problem. Elliott Bennett is set to miss the remainder of the season.
