Championship high flyers Derby take the trip to London to face Fulham in this clash at Craven Cottage this afternoon.
Steve McLaren’s Derby side find themselves at the Championship summit, with a slender two point lead at the top, although his side look well than worthy of reaching the Premier League this season.
Having only lost once in the Championship since mid December, things are looking rosy for the Rams but they will be missing Chris Martin, who has been banging the goals in this season, who is out with a hamstring injury.
Its much of a building job for those involved at Fulham this season, as Kit Symons attempts to rebuild the side, and the Welsh manager has indicated that significant team changes will be made following his sides’ poor 3-0 loss to Wolves midweek.
Championship safety will be the order of the day, as Fulham are currently struggling in the bottom half of the season and with no wins in the league this year, three points would be a welcome boost to the side.
