Fulham face Derby in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday, live on Sky Sports Football Red Button.

Fulham's inconsistency - and the pressure it put on Scott Parker - over the last month seems to have evaporated for the time being, with the Whites taking six points from the last two games: A 1-0 win at Birmingham and a 2-1 west London derby victory at home to QPR on Friday night.

Derby, however, can't seem to put a run of victories together at present.

Phillip Cocu's men beat Preston 1-0 last time out, but lost to Nottingham Forest before the international break.
