Bristol City v Fulham
Sky Bet Championship
Ashton Gate
Wednesday, February 22nd (8pm)

Fulham are the visitors to Ashton Gate for this Sky Bet Championship clash.

Everything you need to know about Fulham can be found below.

FULHAM

The West London club have games in hand on their rivals all challenging for a top-six spot, but it still looks a tall order for Fulham to creep into the play-offs. Five wins in their last ten league matches showcases their indifferent form. In their most recent outing, Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur - inspired by Harry Kane's hat-trick – were comfortable winners at Craven Cottage in the Emirates FA Cup fifth round.

HEAD COACH

Serb Slavisa Jokanovic first came to English football in 2000, when he joined Premier League Chelsea. It was more than 12 years before he returned to these shores to manage Watford, but he made a huge success of it. Jokanovic guided the Hornets into the Premier League as Championship runners-up in 2014/15, but was strangely never given the chance to take charge in the top flight. Now he is trying to do a similar job at Craven Cottage after being appointed Fulham boss in December 2015.

OFFICIALS

Tim Robinson will be in charge of the match, assisted by Andrew Fox and John Flynn. Kevin Johnson has been named as the fourth official.

TICKETS

The match is pay on the day for home fans. It's quid-a-kid across the ground for under-12s.

LAST TIME OUT

Fulham 0-4 Bristol City. September 24th 2016. Fresh from winning 2-1 at Craven Cottage in the EFL Cup, City thrashed their West London hosts in the sun. Tammy Abraham got the ball rolling in the first half, before a second-half onslaught saw Luke Freeman, Bobby Reid and Aden Flint all find the net. To make matters worse for Fulham, Kevin McDonald was shown a late red card.

LAST SEASON

Sky Bet Championship: 20th
FA Cup: Third Round (Lost to Sheffield Wednesday)
EFL Cup: Third Round (Lost to Stoke City)

DID YOU KNOW?

Fulham mascot Billy the Badger has been one of the most controversial furry friends at football grounds across the UK. First he was caught trying to cheer up Chelsea boss Avram Grant on live TV, and then he was sent off for break-dancing on the pitch in a league clash with Aston Villa. In March 2009 he even walked across the playing surface when Fulham scored...but fortunately the referee missed it!

 

SPONSOR

Tonight’s matchball sponsor is Smith and Williamson.
