MATCH REFEREE
Mark Halsey (Bolton, Lancashire, previously of Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire)
  • Victory for Fulham would see them leapfrogging the Baggies with a game in hand, but they're yet to claim a point away from home.

  • Both these clubs, who were formed in 1879, have won two and lost three of their Premier League outings this season.

  • The Cottagers' last league victory at the Hawthorns came on 9 December 2000, a 1-3 success in the Nationwide Division One, when the Fulham went on to be promoted as champions.

  • It's 48 years since the Craven Cottage club last won a top-flight match at the West Midlands club, eclipsing the Baggies 2-4 on 27 August 1960.

  • Distance between the clubs: 130 miles (209 kilometres)

  • The last corresponding fixture between West Brom and Fulham at the Hawthorns was a forgettable goalless draw. It was in stark comparison with the one before that which included three red cards, a goal a piece, a fist-fight and a missed penalty. Papa Bouba Diop, Andrew Cole and Neil Clement all got their marching orders.

  • The most recent meeting between these two was at Craven Cottage on 11 February 2006, when Fulham won 6-1.

  • Aiming for their first back-to-back victories in 52 Premier League matches since Charlton (a) and Everton (h) were defeated on 19 March and 3 April 2005 respectively.

  • Victory would take their all-time Premier League points total to 100.

  • Won 25% of their home games in the Premier League era; 15 of 60.

  • Averaging a goal a game in this league campaign (six in six).

  • Yet to keep a clean sheet at the Hawthorns this term, and not managed one on home soil in the Premier League since the goalless draw with Bolton on 17 April 2006.

  • Won one of the last nine home Premier League games, losing seven of them; the maximum being 3-2 against West Ham on 13 September.

  • 7. The three points over the Hammers were their first in seven Premier League matches against London clubs.

  • If he scores:-
  • Danny MURPHY will reach the milestone of 100 club career goals (Crewe, Liverpool, Charlton, Tottenham and Fulham).

  • If selected:-
  • Zoltan GERA will be facing a former club. The 29 year old Hungary international made 155 appearances (136 in the league) and scored 25 goals (21 league) for West Brom between July 2004 and his move to Craven Cottage last June.

  • Diomansy KAMARA will also be facing former club mates. The 27 year old Senegal international made 72 appearances (60 in the league) and scored 25 goals (21 league) for the Baggies between July 2005 and his ¬£6m close season move to Fulham.
