Match 29/46

Sat 7 Feb 2015

15:00 vs Birmingham City

Craven Cottage (Home)

Star Man: Demarai Gray

Hugo Rodallega's strike earned Fulham their first league win of the season as the Whites came back to beat Birmingham in the reverse fixture, but a lot has since changed. Demarai Gray has hit the limelight but Birmingham City rejected an improved £5m bid from Championship rivals AFC Bournemouth for the teenage winger. In last month's 6-1 home win over Reading, Gray became the third-youngest player in the club's 130-year history to score a hat-trick, that win was part of a run of just two defeats in 15 matches that has propelled Gary Rowett's side from 23rd to 11th in the Championship. Thus, it will be an incredibly tough ask for, what is currently, an extremely average looking Fulham side.

Ethan Predicts: Fulham 1-3 Birmingham

Tom Predicts: Fulham 2-1 Birmingham

Emma Predicts: Fulham 1-1 Birmingham

Match 30/46

Tue 10 Feb 2015

20:00 vs Bolton Wanderers

Macron Stadium (Away)

Bitter Bolton After Liverpool Loss

Neil Lennon's side were unbeaten at home in all competitions until last night when Liverpool proved that defensive football only works for 80 minutes. The Trotters were thumped for 4 by Fulham last time out, Kit Symons biggest home win yet. Yet Lennon, a multi-award winning ex-Celtic manager will be sure to expose nothing but solidity to the Whites at the Macron. As a team who recruited well during the January transfer window, this side couldn't contrast more from Fulham. In other words, they invested where Symons didn't, they don't play the same style of football Symons wants and they are thoroughly solid in defence.

Ethan Predicts: Bolton 2-0 Fulham

Tom Predicts: Bolton 1-1 Fulham

Emma Predicts: Bolton 2-1 Fulham

Match 31/46

Sat 14 Feb 2015

15:00 vs Ipswich Town

Craven Cottage (Home)

Star Man: Daryl Murphy is the league's top scorer

Fourth-placed Ipswich are 11 places and 17 points above Symons' army, and the away side will arrive at the Cottage in very good fettle. Yet their recent form isn't so attractive...
1 win in their last 5 games show a loose cog in the works, and the January window wasn't too much of a success. Optimism is high, however, and Town have already sold more than 3,000 of their ticket allocation of almost 4,000 for their first trip to Craven Cottage since a 1-1 draw in October 2001.

Ethan Predicts: Fulham 1-2 Ipswich

Tom Predicts: Fulham 0-3 Ipswich

TOTAL POINTS HAUL:

Ethan: 0

Tom: 4
