Fulham v West Brom: Out of form pairing’s woes to continue

| 13.09.2013

Those hoping for an entertaining goalfest may want to avoid this one. Both teams have netted in just three of the previous eight encounters so selecting the ‘no’ option in the both teams to score market at evens should generate a return by the Thames.

West Brom enjoyed their greatest ever start to a Premier League season last year but a failure to win at Craven Cottage in this clash will see the Baggies equal their worst ever return from their opening four fixtures.

Steve Clarke’s men travel to a ground where they have failed to register a victory on their last six visits, losing on five occasions.

The Midlands club also harbour an unimpressive record in the capital, winning on just four of their previous 39 jaunts to the city and they are 11/10 to be defeated once again by a London club when they face Fulham here.

The visitors have yet to notch a single goal in league competition and they are 9/5 to draw a blank in this one and become the first team since Swansea in 2011/12 to embark on a goalless run of four matches.

The Midlands outfit will, however, be boosted by their opponents dismal form.

The Cottagers have taken a mere seven points from their preceding 11 top flight games, securing the maximum return in two.

Martin Jol’s side have also displayed frailties on their own patch in recent times, losing five on the spin, their longest run in their tenure at the summit, which could entice those favouring an away success at 5/2.

With two teams performing poorly and both struggling to register a win, the draw will undoubtedly gather real attention at 23/10.

Two of the last four between the duo have resulted in a stalemate and with just two goals between them a 0-0 scoreline appeals at 10/1, while getting behind fewer than 1.5 strikes at 12/5 is wise.
