Well-Backed Fulham Eye Top Six

sky-bet-championship-trophyIn the Championship this weekend Fulham have a big opportunity to gain some ground and stake their claim for a play-off place.

The Cottagers have been on the fringes of the top six for some time, but suffered a shock defeat to in-form Wolves last time out to slip back into seventh place, yet they are highly regarded within the industry and are regularly backed in from their opening prices.

The recent 3-1 victory at Newcastle highlighted their ability and they should hand a 12th defeat in 13 games to Rotherham when they visit the New York Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

By that time they’ll already know how sixth placed Sheffield Weds have got on in their tough derby at Barnsley, while fourth and fifth placed Leeds and Reading will meet at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday evening.

Fulham, who are one point behind the Owls and six adrift of Reading with a much better goal difference than both, can be backed at 9/2 for promotion with Betfred.
