Our prediction for this Championship match:
Thanks to a 2-0 win over Cardiff City in Wales, Fulham moved one step closer to booking their place in the Championship playoffs final. The Cottagers proved their worth in the first leg without top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic in the starting line-up, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the second leg. The Serbia international is rated doubtful for the match, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered.
The Bluebirds failed to impress in the 2-0 defeat to Fulham, and seeing that they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the return leg, we predict that Scott Parker’s men will have a number of opportunities to score on the break. Anyhow, Fulham are more of a team than Cardiff City, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Thursday.
