Fulham v สล็อตออโต้ United Football Preview

I was disappointed in the 3-0 loss that Rangers suffered at the hands of Lyon in their final สล็อตออโต้ League group match and not just because it was a loser that is the nature of the business I am in.

What disappointed me most is the manner in which Rangers lost and the tactics employed, surely in hindsight a more adventurous formation at home would have brought greater reward.

Anyway on to today and it is into the Premiership I am going for the match between Fulham and Newcastle in the 5:15 GMT kick off.

Fulham are 17th in the league ahead of nearest rivals Sunderland on goal difference but they have lost the lead 8 times in league matches so far which adds up to 17 points and if they had held on to those leads they would in fact be in the top 4 or 5.

Their home record so far is won 2 drawn 4 lost 2 scored 14 and conceded 14 and form wise over the last 6 games they have won 1 drawn 2 lost 3 scored 5 and conceded 10 though it must be said that 7 of the goals conceded have come in the 3 away games in that time.

Newcastle on the other hand have had a mini revival under Sam Allardyce and followed a gutsy 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal with a 2-1 home win over Birmingham in their last game. They currently sit 11th in the league and have a record away from St James Park in the league this season of won 1 drawn 2 lost 4 scored 9 and conceded 13, the solitary away win coming on the opening day of the season in a 3-1 defeat of Bolton.

Form over the last 6 games in not that dissimilar to that of Fulham’s with a record of won 1 drawn 2 lost 3 scored 6 and conceded 11, with the form over the last 3 on the road being won 0 drawn 1 lost 2 scored 3 and conceded 6.

Head to head over the last 10 games has seen Fulham win 3 and lose 2 of the games played at Craven Cottage in that time so does not offer many clues to a final outcome in that particular stat:

Feb 3, 07 Premiership Fulham FC 2 – 1 Newcastle United

Oct 21, 03 Premiership Fulham FC 2 – 3 Newcastle United

Apr 19, 03 Premiership Fulham FC 2 – 1 Newcastle United

Dec 21, 02 Premiership Newcastle United 2 – 0 Fulham FC

Team news is that Moritz Volz and midfielders Alexei Smertin and Jimmy Bullard are back in training after long term injuries but won’t feature for Fulham, while Phillipe Christanval, Lee Cook, rian McBride (all knee), Ian Pearce (calf) and Kasey Keller (bicep) are also out.

Claudio Cacapa (hamstring) could return for Newcastle, but Stephen Carr (hamstring) and Peter Ramage (knee) remain on the sidelines. The game will also come too soon for Michael Owen (knee), Damien Duff (foot) and Abdoulaye Faye (calf).

Taking all this into consideration I am going for two bets this evening, firstly the draw which Ladbrokes are currently best price 23/10 and +2.5 goals which is at the moment best price 4/5 with Skybet as neither of these two defences are the most solid in the league.

So hopefully these two bets will help to make up for the disappointment of the Rangers punt in midweek, as ever good luck in whatever you go for.
