Must Win at Craven Cottage Tonight for Fulham

Fulham play tonight against Portsmouth at Craven Cottage at 8pm UK time. The game is on in the United States on Setanta Sports at 3Pm EST. Portsmouth currently sit at the bottom of the table. Fulham have slipped recently in the table down to 11th.

On paper Fulham should be able to win this game comfortably. However, Fulham have lost there last 5 league matches. They also have several injuries that are causing havoc with the first team lineup. Let's hope the additions of Stefano Okaka and Nicky Shorey lessen the blows of these injuries tonight.

With upcoming matches against Bolton and Burnley, the Cottagers have a chance to jump back into the top half of the table. The game tonight against Portsmouth really is a must win. Stoke is only a point behind and several teams are right behind them. A win tonight will take the pressure off the Cottagers at least for a week.
