Fulham face Derby at the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday, live on Sky Sports Football Red Button.
Aboubakar Kamara is pushing to get a start for Fulham’s Sky Bet Championship battle. The scored both the goals in Fulham’s 2-1 triumph over local rivals QPR and stepped into the Aleksandar Mitrovic on Friday night.
Mitrovic is readily available for your derby clash, but manager Scott Parker might have a decision to make over who begins ahead. Parker has no fresh injury issues to compete with.
Derby are likely to be to London without duo Graham Shinnie and Mason Bennett for your trip. The pair both limped off at the first half of their side’s 1-0 home win over Bennett an ankle injury, Shinnie using a issue and Preston on Saturday.
Defender Scott Malone (knee) and midfielders Tom Huddlestone (knee) and Ikechi Anya (H ) are predicted to also remain sidelined.
Fulham’s inconsistency – and the strain it put on Scott Parker – over the last month seems to have vanished for now, together with the Whites carrying six points from the last two games: A 1-0 win at Birmingham and a 2-1 west London derby victory at home to QPR on Friday night.
Derby, nevertheless, can’t appear to place a streak of successes together at present. The men of phillip Cocu beat out Preston time, but lost before the global break to Nottingham Forest.
Fulham have dropped one of the last 14 home league games against Derby County (W7 D6 L1), a 1-0 defeat in April 1969.
Six of the last seven league encounters between Derby and Fulham in Craven Cottage have ended as draws.
Fulham have a greater ownership figure (66.6%) and higher proportion of short moves (90.2%) than every other group in the Championship that season.
Derby haven’t lost four consecutive away league matches since March 2017 under Steve McClaren.
Fulham striker Aboubakar Kamara has dentures at each of his last two Championship starts at Craven Cottage, doing so in January 2018 at their final home match against QPR and from Ipswich.
Derby have won none of their last 11 away league visits into London (W0 D7 L4) using their last win there at December 2016 off at QPR.
Following a tiny dip last month, Fulham look to be returning for their own finest before a busy festive period and that I was impressed with their win against QPR last time out. The Rams of phillip Cocu are not scoring at the present time, but they aren’t conceding many and did well to edge past Preston.
David Prutton predicts: 1-1 (13/2 with Sky Bet)
