PR: Fulham vs Hull City
Craven isn’t a word I often use, but somehow it fits right in to describe how I saw Wednesday nights game as well as linking with this preview. “Craven – fainthearted” The truth is we cannot go to Craven Cottage with that sort of attitude, we need courage some self-belief, as well as the ability to string a few passes together, oh and score, obviously! Grant McCann view is unsurprisingly the same.
“We’re going to go there, embrace the opportunity, embrace the challenge and see if we can play with more bravery in our game.”
Former Tigers boss Marco Silva, side have started very well, in second place in the league after hammering Huddersfield 5-1 and winning 2-1 at Millwall following an opening day draw with Middlesbrough.
Let’s face the fact that Fulham are a good team, they have to be one of the favourites for promotion having kept enough of last season’s Premier League players in the squad to justify that opinion and establishing themselves as a first-class yo-yo club.
Individually and as a team they will be tough opponents add to the mix a rest day in hand along with home advantage, this will be a hard game for City. Could the return of Tom Huddlestone be the key to unlocking Fulham’s defence?
Player to watch: 2019/20 Championship Golden Boot winner Aleksandar Mitrovic has to be a threat, both Jones and Greaves will have their work cut out containing him.

Josh Onomah was substituted at half-time in the win at Millwall on Tuesday but is fit for the weekend, as is Bobby De Cordova-Reid who missed the trip to the Den. Harry Wilson is denied the opportunity to face a former loan side through suspension.

Alfie Jones has a 50-50 chance of making the match according to his Head Coach Grant McCann after the centre-back picked up a groin strain. Mallik Wilks, Ryan Longman and George Honeyman are all definitely out, as is George Moncur who is serving a three-game ban.
