Head to Head

  • Middlesbrough took the lead in last season's corresponding fixture. Colin Cooper scored after a defensive mix-up. Sub Louis Saha equalised with a diving header and Steve Marlet won it for Fulham with a goal the 'Boro players complained was off side.
  • The reverse fixture was turned on its head by two stoppage time scrambled efforts from Sean Davis and sub Facundo Sava after new Teesside hero Massimo Maccarone gave Middlesbrough a comfortable lead with two goals from Jonathan Greening crosses.
  • The Teessiders have only won once in the top flight at Fulham. That was 1-2 in the former Division One on 6 May, 1950.
  • The Londoners have won four of the last six home games against the Teessiders.
  • The Cleveland club have won only one of their six trips to Fulham since 1983.
  • Fulham's biggest win in this corresponding fixture was 6-0 on 19 January, 1952 in the old League - Division One. Middlesbrough's biggest win in a League match at Fulham was 0-4 on 19 March, 1974 was in the former Second Division.
  • No player has ever been sent off in this corresponding fixture.
  • The last player to bag a hat trick in League fixtures between these clubs was Graham Leggat. He scored all Fulham's goals in the 2-3 away win in the former Second Division victory on 25 October, 1958.
  • Fulham are looking to register their fifth win in seven home League games against 'Boro.
  • The visitors will be keen to prevent a repeat of their performance in the reverse fixture when they were leading 2-0 in front of their home fans going into stoppage time, but only claimed a point.
  • The Cottagers, who hold the weakest disciplinary record in the top division, have never met Middlesbrough outside a League fixture.

Matchday Referee

Mark Halsey - Bolton, Lancashire

Ref Mark HalseyMark Halsey enjoyed a fairly meteoric rise to the Premier League referees list having only taken up the profession in the 1988/89 season. The 41-year-old self-employed driver - or white van man - caught the refereeing bug in the Hertfordshire County League, before joining the football league as a linesman in 1993.

Halsey came into the Premiership with a reputation as a lover of injury time. He was in charge of the 1998/99 Division Two play-off final in which Manchester City scored in the 95th minute to equalise with Gillingham, before winning the match on penalties.

(Ed. - Ref Halsey has reffed 3 Fulham games this season so far the League Cup 2-1 away defeat against Wigan, our Premiership 4-2 away defeat against Southampton and our Premiership 3-2 home victory over Tottenham. In these games he booked Boa Morte, Goma and Ouaddou. In the Tottenham game the linesman on the Ellerslie Road side had a shocker allowing two Spurs goals despite offsides and fouls but went on to redeem himself by insisting on giving a penalty to Fulham against the clear wishes of Halsey.)

Ref Halsey is whistling a little less this season, as much as once less per game. More seriously his approach to cautions has changed dramatically with 33% less yellows being issued this season so far. As far as reds are concerned he is 1 or 2 cards up on his last season figures.

Franck Queudrue has 5 yellows while Ugo Ehiogun and Jonathan Greening are both on 3 cards. Luis Boa Morte is on 4 cards at the moment
