Fulham square off against Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday evening looking to extend their winning streak in the Championship to five matches.

However, their hosts have also posted back-to-back wins, results which have moved Tony Mowbray's side up to seventh position in the standings.

Even with the season being under three months old, there was a feeling ahead of Fulham's meeting with West Bromwich Albion that it could prove decisive in the promotion race further down the line.

While fortune was on their side, the Cottagers made light work of their rivals, running out 3-0 victors to move four points clear of third position.

Marco Silva will insist that his squad will focus on one game at a time, but the West Londoners will sense that there is an opportunity to heap the pressure on the clubs below them.

Aleksandar Mitrovic remains in stunning form, the Serbia international netting all three goals at the weekend to take his tally to 18 strikes from 15 appearances.

Although Fulham end the latest period with successive away games, it is difficult to back against Silva's men from recording two more convincing wins.

Nevertheless, Blackburn will be optimistic of extending their own run of positive form on Wednesday night after moving closer to the playoffs.

Rovers prevailed past Reading and Derby County at the back end of October, Ben Brereton Diaz now scoring 12 times this season courtesy of his double versus the latter.

More importantly for Mowbray, his side have started to look stronger in defence, an improvement which was needed with 17 goals being conceded in 13 outings before the most recent double-header.

Although two tough games with Fulham and Sheffield United await his side, Mowbray will feel that his team are playing with such a belief that two more wins should not be out of the question.
