Fulham Football Club do not have a very good home record and have won just two games at home in the league all season. They are above Sunderland in 4th bottom position due to a superior goal difference. We expect Newcastle to pick up all 3 points tomorrow at Craven Cottage.
Sam Allardyce – Newcastle due a win on the road tomorrow
Newcastle havenâ€™t been great way form home this season, but showed encouraging form at Blackburn Rovers, and were unlucky not to get something out of that game. Similar form tomorrow at Craven Cottage should get us a result and all 3 points has to be the goal for tomorrow’s game.
Our only win on the road this season was our very first competitive game under Sam Allardyce at Bolton on the first day of the season.
Sam talked about Fulham today:
â€œI think Fulham are a better team than their league position suggests. They have been in the lead a lot this season and drawn games they should have won and lost games they should have drawn.”
“They have conceded a lot of late goals, but they are close to being a top-half-of-the-table side in my opinion.â€ â€œThey are a bit like us because we could be in a higher position than we are for the same reason. Weâ€™ve been talking about the need to be better at the back all season, in fact weâ€™re sick of talking about it.â€
â€œItâ€™s time to go out there and do it on the pitch.â€
In our next two games, away tomorrow at Fulham and then home the following Sunday against bottom of the league Derby County, has to be thought of as 6 points for us and a suitable move up the league. Anything less will be a disappointment, that’s for sure.
