Our prediction for this Championship match:
Fulham will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over QPR when they face Birmingham City at their Craven Cottage. The Cottagers quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Leeds United, with the team moving one step closer to booking their place in the playoffs. The triumph in the local derby gave Scott Parker’s men a confidence boost, and even though key attacker Aleksandar Mitrovic is sidelined through suspension, home win should be considered.
Since the Blues experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Huddersfield Town, they are unlikely to spoil Fulham’s party at Craven Cottage. In the first half of the season Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goal helped Fulham beat Birmingham at St. Andrew’s Stadium. This time out the Serbian attacker will not lead the line for the hosts. In his absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Ivan Cavaleiro.
