Saturday, October 31st, 3pm

Bristol City take on Fulham for the first time in almost 18 years at Ashton Gate this Saturday (3pm).

Find out more about Fulham below.

FULHAM
After a slow start to the season, boss Kit Symons job has come under scrutiny. The Cottagers have one win in five games to their name but did beat local rivals QPR 4-0 at Craven Cottage. The West Londoners possess the attacking threats of Ross McCormack, Moussa Dembele and Matt Smith while Tom Cairney and Alexander Kacaniklic have also impressed from midfield.

MANAGER
Kit Symons - Former Wales international whose 17-year career spanned across four clubs including Fulham. The 44-year-old has been caretaker of Crystal Palace (twice), Colchester United and Fulham as well as being assistant manager of Wales. He took over the reigns permanently at Craven Cottage in last year.

STAR MAN
Ross McCormack - Signed from Leeds United for a Championship transfer record estimated at £11m. The 29-year-old started his career with Rangers and after two years with Motherwell, he moved to English leagues with Cardiff City. The Scotland international impressed for the Welsh club and was denied moves to the Premier League before signing for Leeds. He scored 58 times 154 appearances for the Yorkshire club leading to his big money sale to Fulham. The striker had eight goals this season.

OFFICIALS
Andy Woolmer is appointed as the man in the middle. Justin Amey and John Law will assist him, and Rob Lewis will be the fourth official.

TICKETS
This match is sold out.

LAST TIME OUT
Fulham 1-0 Bristol City (1997) - A Paul Moody header earned Ray Wilkins’ Fulham an impressive win over in-form City at Craven Cottage. The visitors went into the game on the back of a 15-match unbeaten run, which included 13 wins, but their streak was ended when Moody won it for the Cottagers with a glancing header in the 55th minute.

LAST SEASON
Sky Bet Championship: 17th
FA Cup: Fourth round replay (lost to Sunderland)
Capital One Cup: Fourth round (lost to Derby County)

DID YOU KNOW?
Fulham have never won a major trophy. They lost in the 1958 FA Cup final to Aston Villa and 2010 Europa League final to Atletico Madrid.
