Fulham are still in the lead in the Championship, but in recent rounds they have started to lose points frequently due to numerous draws. If in the matches against Bournemouth even 1 point is a good result, then the draws with Derby, Luton or Preston were unexpected. As a result, the gap from the 3-4th place is no longer so significant and amounts to only 3-4 points. Fulham are trying to play not rough, with an average of 1.3 cards at home, with an average score of 4.1 cards (including CC). In the 11 rounds played at Craven Cottage, in 6 cases there were at least 4 cards (including CC).
“Sheffield United” after 21 rounds is in 14th place, while the gap from the top six is only 6 points. In the course of the season, the “Blades” managed to change their coach, and so far they did not lose points under Paul Hackingbottom (2 victories in two rounds). Sheffield United receives an average of 1.9 away cards with an average score of 3.5. In the 11 away rounds played, in 6 cases there were at least 4 cards (including CC).
The match will be served by James Linington, the highest card referee of this season in the Championship. He worked in 9 rounds and with an average 5.1 LCD, in 6 cases he showed at least 4 cards.
Fulham, thanks to the misfires of the main pursuers, have a lead over the second place. However, other competitors are gradually closing the distance. The same “Sheffield United” took the maximum points in the last three rounds, i.e. the change of mentor clearly benefited the team. As a result, the match may not be so easy for the hosts, but taking into account the refereeing with a sufficient number of cards.
