Two sides sitting comfortably in mid table meet at Craven Cottage this weekend when Sunderland travel to West London to take on Fulham, as Martin O’Neil’s side could be worth a punt at 3/1 with Ladbrokes.
Martin Jol’s men had a fantastic victory last time out when they were 1-0 winners at Anfield. Even though Liverpool have been poor at home this season, it was still a famous three points.
Jol will not be letting his players go easy this weekend, as he knows they could go eighth with a result here, which would be a great return for the season.
Fulham are now unbeaten in three games on home soil so will be confident of taking the points from Sunderland in this fixture. They enjoy playing in front of their home fans at the moment.
With just one defeat in their previous six, the Cottagers are on a great run of form, with leading scorer Clint Dempsey scoring four times in this sequence.

The West London outfit have put back to back victories together just two times in the Premier League this season, something they will be looking to change come Sunday afternoon.
As for Sunderland, after their initial resurgence under Martin O’Neil their campaign has faded out somewhat, failing to pick up a win since the 24th of March.
This is not to take away what a great job O’Neil has done at the Stadium of Light, considering they were relegation candidates when he took over in December. His side now sit in eleventh position with a finish in the top half still possible.
The Black Cats have found finding the back of the net a struggle in recent weeks, scoring just two goals in their previous five encounters. This includes a run of four games where they have failed to break the deadlock.
Sunderland fans will have one eye on the summer which should be an exciting one for the club, with O’Neil being able to bring in his own crop of players.
There isn’t too much to play for and this should be a closely fought contest. It all gets underway from Craven Cottage at 2pm on Sunday.
