Weekend Premiership games - Saturday Full Times

last updated Saturday 08th September 2001, 6:03 PM
On Sunday Fulham make a short journey across London to play Charlton for our first London derby in the the Premiership. The Super Whites must win or at worst draw if a mid-table or higher position is to be achieved at the end of the season

Charlton gained promotion to the Premiership at the end of the 1999/2000 season and in the Premiership last season finished 9th after winning 14 drawing 10 and losing 14 games. Of the 14 defeats only three were at home! This season they have played twice losing at home and winning away.

Charlton are not slow in coming forward having created as many goal attempts as Fulham, an average of 10.5 attempts per game. However following our dismal game against Defensive Derby Charlton's shots on target rate stands at 48% while Fulham's is 36%. Charlton facing a number of injuries will not be able to field their preferred first eleven and therefore may be more defensive than they would normally be at home.

Historically in 21 away fixtures against Charlton Fulham have won 5, drawn 7 and lost 9 so although the game is a must win it will not be easy.

The Fulhamweb prediction is a victory of at least 3-1 to Fulham and a crowd of 20500

Interesting results on Saturday were Chelsea and Arsenal drawing 1-1, Derby and West Ham drawing 1-1 with Leicester and Middlesboro continuingtheir disastrous start. Bolton remain top of the Premiership, clear from Man Utd and Leeds by 2 points. Fulham dropped to 11th but if we win tomorrow we will bounce up to 5th.


Barclaycard Premiership Weekend Games

On Sunday Fulham meet Charlton at The Valley and plan to take all three points.

Fulhamweb's prediction is 3-1 victory for Fulham in front of a 20500 crowd.

What do you think the score will be?

Man Utd (2) 4 Everton (0) 1

Charlton (13) v Fulham (7)
