Fulham v Derby Play-Off Semi-Final 2nd Leg Betting Preview

Date: 14/5/18

Time: 19:45

Stadium: Craven Cottage

Channel: Sky Sports

Fulham face Derby in a crucial Championship play-off second leg at Craven Cottage. Derby were 1-0 victors on Friday night and hold a slender advantage after a bullet header from Cameron Jerome.

It is two losses on the bounce for Fulham who were unbeaten in their previous 23.

They have quality in attack with players such as Ryan Sessegnon and Alexander Mitrovic. The Serb was blunted by a tremendous defensive performance by Curtis Davies while Sessegnon was anonymous and was too central.

The West London side dominated for most of the game but did not test Carson enough. At home, it should be different and they would expect to score at least once.

Team News

Sheyi Ojo could earn a recall for Fulham. Anya could return to Derby’s XI. Marcus Olsson suffered an ACL injury and will be out for a long period.

Potential Fulham Starting XI: Bettinelli; Targett, Ream, Odoi, Fredericks; Johansen, McDonald, Cairney; Sessegnon, Mitrovic, Ojo

Potential Derby Starting XI: Carson; Keogh, Davies, Forsyth; Wisdom, Huddlestone, Johnson, Weimann; Vydra, Lawrence, Jerome
