Fulham vs Nottingham Forest

, KO: 19:30 Dec 6, 2023, Craven Cottage
Nottingham Forest

Fulham host Nottingham Forest in a midweek Premier League fixture with both teams looking to find some consistency in their campaign. Fulham have done some of their best work at Craven Cottage and should have the edge over Forest, who often struggle on their travels.

Fulham are coming off a 4-3 defeat to Liverpool in a thrilling encounter last time out in the Premier League. They looked to have sealed a famous win after coming from behind to lead through Harry Wilson, Kenny Tete and Bobby De Cordova-Reid but ultimately suffered a late capitulation.

Although it ultimately ended in defeat, manager Marco Silva will take plenty of positives from the team's display. Having lost three of their last four matches, Fulham will be keen to use that performance as a spark to get things back on track.

Fulham have done some of their best work at Craven Cottage, where they have won three of their last five matches. They picked up a 3-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous home fixture, although the result means they are without a clean sheet in their last four matches in front of their fans.

Nottingham Forest travel to Craven Cottage off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Everton in their previous Premier League fixture. They saw a lot of possession but struggled to find the cutting edge in attack, finishing with just two attempts on target.

That result means Nottingham Forest have now picked up just one win from their last five matches, suffering four defeats in that run. One thing that will also be worrying for manager Steve Cooper is that Forest are winless in the last 10 Premier League matches without Taiwo Awoniyi, who is not expected to return from a groin injury until 2024.

Nottingham Forest have also found things difficult on their travels this season, claiming just one away win in seven matches so far. They have been beaten five times in that run and suffered a 3-2 defeat to West Ham in their previous fixture on the road.

Players to watch
