Fulham v Blackburn Rovers @ Craven Cottage
Sunday, September 13 2015 @ 12pm
Fulham will be looking to complete consecutive victories in the Championship for the first time this season in Sunday’s home fixture against Blackburn Rovers.
The Cottagers secured their first league win of the season away against Rotherham in the last game before the recent international break.
Manager Kit Symons has spoken during the week about how he expects his new look squad to start picking up the points they are capable of.
Deadline day signings Richard Stearman and Ryan Fredericks could both make their debuts having been involved in training sessions with their new teammates ahead of the televised fixture.
England U21 international Cauley Woodrow will be hoping for a starting spot having come off the bench to score in the past two league games against Rotherham and Huddersfield, but top scorer Ross McCormack is likely to spearhead the attack.
The former Leeds United player has netted three goals in all competitions including a double against Sheffield United in August’s League Cup clash at Craven Cottage.
Blackburn’s danger man is Jordan Rhodes who has an increased demand on his shoulders following the summer departure of fellow striker Rudy Gestede to Aston Villa.
Blackburn’s last fixture was a goalless draw to Lancashire rivals Bolton and they will come to the capital desperate to pick up their first league victory of the season in a game they have won the last three times the two clubs met.
Fulham’s last victory came back in 2011, when both sides were in the Premier League.
