West Brom vs Fulham Premier League Preview

December 31, 2012


Fulham will be desperate to find some fresh form in the New Year when they visit West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday lunchtime. 

Martin Jol's team are in relegation shape after winning just one of their last 12 Premier League games to fall to 14th position in the table.

Saturday's defeat by Swansea City at Craven Cottage was a latest setback and the home fans booed their team off at half-time in the game. 

Jol therefore knows he needs to ease the pressure with a win against a West Brom club who first brought him to England as a player in the 1980s. 

But it will not be easy at The Hawthorns, where the Baggies have won seven games this season to match the record of defending champions Manchester City. 

Steve Clarke's side did lose at table-topping Manchester United at the weekend in what was their fourth defeat in seven league games in part of a slide to seventh spot. 

But West Brom have still enjoyed an excellent season and Clarke will want to avenge the 3-0 setback at Fulham in September.



West Brom head coach Steve Clarke will check on the fitness of several key players ahead of Tuesday's home Premier League clash with Fulham.

Defenders Jonas Olsson (groin), Steven Reid (ankle) and Goran Popov (hamstring) and midfielders Youssouf Mulumbu and Claudio Yacob (both hamstring) all missed the 2-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Midfielder George Thorne could make another start against the Cottagers after impressing at Old Trafford following his recall from a loan spell at Peterborough.


Fulham will wait to see if Mahamadou Diarra, Mladen Petric and Damien Duff have any chance of being available.

The trio missed Saturday's defeat by Swansea City and manager Martin Jol has admitted they are unlikely to return at The Hawthorns.

But Jol is hopeful goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer will return from a neck injury on Tuesday after watching understudy David Stockdale gift Swansea their victory.
