There’s a huge game in West London tonight, as Fulham host Derby County in the second leg of the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi Final.
The Rams head into tonight’s game with a slender advantage, after Cameron Jerome’s first half header earned them a 1-0 victory at the iPro Stadium.
It was their defensive solidarity that earned them the win, and meant that they head into tonight’s game knowing they will progress to the Sky Bet Championship Final if they avoid defeat against the Cottagers.
Fulham’s recent history in the Play-Offs does not stand them in good stead. They lost in last season’s Semi Final to Reading, and they head into tonight’s game knowing that no team has overturned a first leg deficit in the Play-Offs since Bolton Wanderers in 1995.
That being said, the Cottagers fans are still optimistic ahead of the game.
They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts ahead of kick off. Here is a look at what some of them have said:
It is this supporter’s dream to watch Fulham at Wembley, and he could be just 90 minutes away from making that dream a reality.
On my way to the Cottage. A cocktail of expectation with a dash of fear. My dream of watching #FFC at Wembley is just a game away….COYW!

The fans will play a big part for the home team, and this fan has called for the Craven Cottage faithful to create a good atmosphere.

Let’s hope that Fulham do not let this supporter down on his birthday…

Fulham star Tom Cairney has previously said it is now or never for Fulham, and that is clearly something that this fan agrees with.
Come on Fulham! Now or never lads! #ffc
