Match Stats - Charlton v Fulham 17.10.05

last updated Friday 14th October 2005, 11:25 AM
Big match facts from BBCSport FULHAM are 18th with 5 points and their highest achievable position after Match Day 9's games is 13th while the lowest could be 20th.
  • FULHAM cross the capital in search of only their second League victory of the season. They've lost five of the last seven League games and have not suffered four losses in succession since West Ham, Southampton, Arsenal and Aston Villa defeated them between 23 October and 9 November 2002.
  • This will be the 90th time Chris Coleman has selected the side for a Premiership match. Fulham have won 30 of the previous 89 under him, and are going into their fourth London Premiership derby this season. All three previous duels have been lost - away to Arsenal and Tottenham either side of a home reverse to West Ham. The Cottagers also lost at Chelsea toward the end of last season, so they are desperate to prevent a fifth consecutive derby defeat.
  • There's nothing to choose between these clubs in the League head-to-head standings. Both have won 17 of the 50 clashes against each other, with 16 drawn.
  • Collected just one point out of a last possible 12.
  • The 1-0 home victory over Everton on 27 August, is the clubs only maximum so far in this Premiership season.
  • Failed to score in two of their eight League matches this term, and kept two clean sheets in the eight.
  • Only Aston Villa lie beneath the Cottagers in the Premiership's "away" table on goal difference (one point each).
  • Without a victory away from home so far this term.
  • Picked up one point from the 12 available so far this season away from Craven Cottage.
  • Won only one of the last 11 Premiership matches on the road.
  • Lost nine of the last 12 away games in all competitions.
  • Lost on their Premiership travels eight times in the last 11 trips.
  • Conceded more Premiership goals away from home than any other club this season, with the exception of Aston Villa (eight each).
  • Yet to keep a clean sheet on the road this term.
  • Steed MALBRANQUE has scored four times against Charlton (including a hat trick in the FA Cup).
  • If he participates, Claus JENSEN will be playing against his former club.

CHARLTON ATHLETIC are 2nd with 15 points and their highest achievable position after Match Day 9's games is 2nd while the lowest could be 8th.
  • CHARLTON ATHLETIC against Fulham in the Monday match brings together in a London Premiership derby the Addicks, who're enjoying their best ever start to a Premiership campaign and the Cottagers, who are enduring their worst ever and battling to avoid a fourth successive defeat.
  • Alan Curbishley is determined the Addicks will not suffer a third home debut in a London derby this season. They've already lost 0-2 to Chelsea and 2-3 to Tottenham. They've lost three, and drawn one of their last four capital clashes. A 2-0 victory over Spurs on 15 March is their only triumph in seven all-London Premiership contests.
  • The Addicks are vying for a third successive home Premiership victory over Fulham. Charlton midfielder Jerome Thomas celebrated the signing of an improved contract by netting the first in the 2-1 victory when these clubs last met at the Valley, just before last Christmas.

  • Gone 11 top flight contests since a goalless draw.
  • Not suffered back-to-back defeats in eight games in the highest echelon.
  • Aiming to avoid a third consecutive home League defeat.
  • Managed one victory in the last eight League games at the Valley (1-0 v Wigan on 20 August).
  • Darren BENT is joint leading marksman in the Premiership standings with seven goals, alongside Ruud VAN NISTELROOY, going into this weekend's round of matches.
  • If he participates, Thomas MYHRE will be playing the day after his 32nd birthday.
  • Bryan HUGHES needs a hat trick to total 50 career League goals.
  • If on the field from the outset, Shaun BARTLETT will be making his 100th start for the Addicks.
