FULHAM
11th in Premiership
with 9 points
Position achievable
after MatchDay 8:
Highest 9th - Lowest 14th
  • FULHAM host Charlton in the Monday night match, searching for a first win in four Premiership outings. But their plight is nothing compared to that of their opponents, who are rock bottom and desperate to avert a fifth successive League loss.
  • There are no shortage of goals when Fulham are around. The spectacular 3-3 draw, away to Watford, in their last match was the joint highest scoring encounter of this Premiership season. Indeed Chris Coleman's side have been involved in two of the three six-goal games so far - the other being their opening 5-1 hammering at Manchester United.
  • The Cottagers are on the look out to extend their unbeaten Premiership run against Charlton to four games. Luis Boa Morte scored twice in last season's corresponding fixture. The victory was Fulham's most recent in a London Premiership derby and sealed top flight football for another season at Craven Cottage. Jason Euell's consolation was Charlton's first ever away goal against Fulham in this League.

Charlton
20th in Premiership
with 3 points
Position achievable
after MatchDay 8:
Highest 14th - Lowest 20th
  • CHARLTON ATHLETIC are in danger of suffering a sequence of five consecutive League defeats for the third time inside a year. They lost the last three of last season and first two of this. Prior to that, they failed to gain a point from five outings between 29 October and 4 December. But on the plus side for beleaguered manager Iain Dowie is the fact that in their seven fixtures to date, the Addicks have already played five of the current top six clubs, plus Arsenal.
  • This is Charlton's fourth London Premiership derby, and second in a row. They're still looking for a first point having lost at West Ham and Chelsea, and home to the Gunners last time out. They cross the capital eager to improve on a winless run of 17 Premiership matches away from home, 13 of which have been lost, including the last six.
  • The Addicks are searching for a first ever Premiership victory on Fulham soil. They've drawn two and lost four League trips since a 0-3 triumph at second League level on 22 April 1986. It's 56 years since Charlton recorded a top flight maximum at Fulham - that being 1-3 on 23 August 1950.

  • Not won in four in all competitions.
  • Claimed two points from the last nine available, since winning 1-2 at Newcastle on 9 September.
  • Conceded the opening goal in five of their seven Premiership matches, but gained five points from those matches (won at Newcastle, and drew home to Bolton, and away to Watford).
  • Conceded more goals in the first quarter (22 minutes) of Premiership matches this season than any other club (four) and scored more in the last 10 minutes than any other (five).
  • Scored four more League goals on the road than at home. One each against Bolton and Sheffield United are the only occasions Fulham have hit the back of the net in League games at Craven Cottage this term, whereas they've hit the back of the net six times on their travels.
  • Completed 19 top tier matches since a victory by more than a single goal (6-1, home to West Brom on 11 February).
  • Won one, drawn one and lost one of their three home League matches.
  • Premiership games involving Fulham are the ones to watch in terms of goals return. Their seven outings have produced an unequalled 20 (eight for, 12 against). Charlton's game have yielded 18 (five for, 13 against).
  • This is Fulham's fifth game in a row in all competitions against clubs from the home counties, and third in four Premiership encounters against clubs from within the M25. They drew at Spurs, and lost at home to Chelsea.
  • If he participates, CLAUS JENSEN will be playing against his former club.
  • If he lines up from the opening whistle, Luis BOA MORTE will be making his 200th start in a Fulham shirt.
  • If he plays, Ian PEARCE will be making his 250th career League appearance (Chelsea, Blackburn, West Ham and Fulham).
  • Mark PEMBRIDGE needs one more appearance to total 400 in his League career.
  • If they get run outs, NICLAS JENSEN and Heidar HELGUSON will be making their 50th career appearances in the Premier League.
  • If he lines up for the opening whistle, Moritz VOLZ will be making his 100th career League start (Wimbledon and Fulham).

  • Lost more Premiership matches this season than any other club (six), and dropped more points (18).

  • Victory would be Charlton's 1,200th in their League history.

  • The only club without a top tier draw so far this term.

  • 10 of those 13 goals have been conceded in the second half - that's more than any other club.
  • Not won a London Premiership derby in 2006. Drawn two and lost six, since beating West Ham 2-0 at home on 31 December 2005.
  • Had a club best 16 Premiership points after the first eight games last season, that's 10 more than Charlton would have this season even with a win over Fulham. Their previous lowest Premiership points tally after the first eight games was seven in 2002-03, when they went on to finish 12th.
  • DARREN BENT has scored five of Charlton's six goals so far this season - four of the five in the Premiership. Jimmy Floyd HASSELBAINK got the other.
