Second-from-top meets second-from-bottom this weekend, as Fulham welcome Barnsley to Craven Cottage. The London outfit are the most in-form team in the division at the minute, as Scott Parker’s men go about an instant return to the Premier League.
Fulham have won their last six games, including the 7-0 thumping away at Blackburn two weeks ago and it leaves the Cottagers in second in the league, two points off first-placed Bournemouth. It’s been the opposite run of form for the visitors, with Barnsley sitting in the relegation zone after losing eight of their last nine league games. The Yorkshire outfit are four points adrift of Peterborough in 21st.
Aleksandr Mitrovic has been in fine form this season with 20 goals in 17 Championship games. Now, fresh from firing his national team into the World Cup, the Serbian international will be looking to add to his tally against a struggling Barnsley.
