Tomorrow sees a buoyant Leeds United travel to London for reunion of sorts with their 40-goal ex-strike partnership from last season,  in Ross McCormack and Matt Smith. Whilst Leeds will enter the game as the Championship’s 13th-placed team (48 points – 1.30 points p/game), Fulham are firmly down the bottom of the table in 20th place with 40 points (1.08 points p/game) and only two losses away from the relegation mire.

In terms of form, nine places separate Leeds United in 12th place (1.67 points p/game over last six games) and Fulham in 21st place (0.83 points p/game). Leeds have the division’s 2nd-ranked away form record (four wins, a loss and a draw; 2.17 points p/game) and will arrive at Craven Cottage following a recent 1-0 away win against Wigan. Fulham’s home form is much better than their Championship form; they have the 14th-ranked home form record (three wins, two losses and a draw; 1.67 points p/game). Bearing this in mind, Fulham’s bad run of form of late, coupled with Leeds’ excellent away form, this could spell danger for the Londoners.
