History of the Fulham v Southampton fixture

Southampton face a trip to Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Saints will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 15 and win only 3 of the 29 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2003, with Fulham running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Fulham's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Cottagers have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Southampton's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Saints have hit 5 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Fulham find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 5 points from their 6 matches. Southampton are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 4 points from 6 matches.
