Fulham are keen on grabbing another positive result on their latest English Premier League fixture this Saturday, January 11 as they meet up against fellow relegation battler, Sunderland at Craven Cottage. This type of encounter is a must win for the Cottagers as by taking points from their direct rival, there's a big shot that they finished better in the final standings. Moreover, getting three points are very essential for the home side knowing that they are far from secure from current 16th place as relegation battle this season are looking tight as ever.
Sunderland themselves are also looking to pick up maximum points this weekend as they're position will not get any better should they continue to fail in picking up three points. It won't be an easy task, but their recent Capital One Cup victory over Mnchester United could very well push their confidence when facing Fulham this Saturday.
It was the away side that bag all three points from that weekend encounter as they bagged a convincing 4-1 away victory against their opponent with goals being scored by Adam Johnson on 29 minutes, Ki Sung-Yeung on 41 minutes, before Johnson completing his hat-trick adding his tally on 69 and 85 minutes. Meanwhile, Fulham themselves only managed to pull one goal back with an effort from Steve Sidgewell on 52 minutes, which was far from enough to cause the Black Cats much concern.
