An interesting survival battle set to occur this weekend, when home team, West Bromwich Albion, are facing strong challenge from bottom seat Fulham at The Hawthorns stadium. Currently sitting only one step above that bottom three standings, West Brom will be pushing for all three points this Saturday, February 22 as that's the only result they must be targeting in current situation. Considering the quality of their opposition, this tie can be considered as the host's best chance in securing maximum points to further aid their survival mission.
Meanwhile, Fulham themselves will also consider this tie as their best shot in getting that winning run back again, as fighting fellow struggling side is definitely a must win result if they are really keen on keeping their place in Premier League. Picking up inconsistent result in their latest two games, the Cottagers are hoping that they can produce an excellent performance this Saturday.
Neither of those two teams managed to snatch maximum points from that weekend tie as that game ended in a 1-1 draw. The visitor actually got themselves in front first through Ashkan Dejagah's effort on 28 minutes, but that lead was eventually canceled out as with four minutes left in the clock, Matej Vydra netted home the equalizing goal for West Brom.
