Fulham travel to Vicarage Road on Tuesday night knowing that if they lose then relegation to the Sky Bet Championship will be sealed.

Fulham caretaker boss Scott Parker has called on his side to delay their almost inevitable relegation at Watford on Tuesday night.

The Cottagers, who have lost all four matches since Parker took over from Claudio Ranieri, know a defeat will see them follow Huddersfield into the Championship with five games still to play.

Parker said: "I think a win is vitally important.

The scenario is what it is, but it's a massive game for us to not be relegated tomorrow night.

" Watford are still chasing a seventh place finish despite losing to Manchester United 2-1 on Saturday, but will be without Isaac Success on Tuesday night as he has a knee injury.

Head to head

  • All three previous Premier League meetings have ended in a draw.

  • Fulham have not beaten Watford in any of their last five meetings (D3, L2).


  • Fulham have lost their last eight league games, including all four under caretaker manager Scott Parker.

  • They have lost their last six consecutive away matches and have not won away in the league for a year - their tally of just two points away from home this season is the lowest in the top four tiers of English football.

  • They have conceded at least twice in 12 consecutive league games.

  • Fulham have managed to score in just half of their 16 away matches in this season's Premier League.

  • They have kept just one clean sheet away from home in this season's top flight - at Newcastle in December.


  • Watford are in danger of losing three consecutive league matches for the second time this season.

  • But they are looking for a third consecutive home win.

  • A 13th league victory of the season would be the most recorded by Watford in a top-flight campaign since 1986-87, when they earned 18 wins.

  • They only need three more points this season to eclipse their club Premier League record of 45, set in 2015-16.

  • Watford's last six Premier League defeats all have come against established top six teams.

  • Watford have won just one of their last 10 midweek Premier League games (D2, L7).
