Fulham continue their quest for promotion in an EFL Championship fixture against Middlesbrough at Craven Cottage. The London side have won their last two matches and are backed to maintain their fine form against Boro.

Fulham Form


Fulham earned a 1-0 victory at Hull City in their last Championship fixture. Ivan Cavaleiro's first half effort proved to be the difference for the London club.

The Cottagers continue to close the gap on the automatic promotion places as they sit just seven points off the top two. Scott Parker’s men have won three of their last four matches in all competitions, including a 2-1 victory over Premier League team Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

Fulham News


Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic went off injured on Saturday and is likely to miss the visit of Middlesbrough. Midfielder Harrison Reid is also ruled out of Friday’s clash with injury.

Middlesbrough Form


Middlesbrough were held to a 2-2 home draw by Derby County in their last Championship fixture. They twice took the lead through Lewis Wing and Paddy McNair but were pegged back both times.

They followed up that result with 2-1 defeat in an FA Cup replay at Tottenham, George Saville grabbed Boro's solitary goal.

Boro have struggled on their travels this season and have claimed just two wins in their last 13 away matches. Among their results on the road this season is a 3-1 defeat to promotion chasers Swansea while they also lost 4-0 at second place Leeds.

Middlesbrough News


Middlesbrough are without a number of players with Britt Assombalonga, Ryan Shotton and Daniel Ayala all sidelined with injury. Striker Rudy Gestede continues to work his way back to full fitness and is expected to feature on Friday.

Fulham vs Middlesbrough Head to Head


Fulham have a 12-11 advantage with seven draws from 30 previous matches against Middlesbrough. The Cottagers are unbeaten in the last three Championship matches and earned a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture at the Riverside Stadium.

Fulham vs Middlesbrough Betting Odds


Fulham are favourites to win on Friday at odds of 1.85. Middlesbrough are priced at 4.00 for an unlikely victory in London with a draw set at odds of 3.60. Middlesbrough produced over 3.5 goals in their last Championship fixture and a similar outcome is paying 3.00. 

Over 2.5 goals is valued at 1.72 while BTTS is offered at odds of 1.66.

Fulham vs Middlesbrough Match Up 


Even without the injured Aleksandar Mitrovic, Fulham still have enough quality to trouble the Fulham backline. Ivan Cavaleiro often troubles defenders with his pace and movement and has scored twice in his last three matches. 

Britt Assombalonga is out injured, meaning Ashley Fletcher is expected to carry the attacking threat for Middlesbrough. With Fulham likely to dominate the possession, the striker could be starved of service on Thursday.
