Outstandingly defeating the annoying opponent Swansea, Fulham has just resumed an extremely intense race to the prestigious promotion ticket. In the next round, Fulham will continue to face the direct competitor Preston and the next victory is what Scott Parker's teachers and students are aiming for.

Despite overwhelming the opponent for most of the match, but it was thanks to the goal of striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in the 90 + 3 minute for Fulham to get all 3 points in the welcome Swansea. Even more meaningful when that victory also ended the thirst for points with a series of 3 games not winning before. In general, what was the period when Fulham did not get the best performance, proving that they only won 2 draws 2 and lost 1 in the last 5 rounds. In the aforementioned series, they were drawn by both Millwall and Derby and especially the shameful defeat to 0-3 at home against Barnsley. Of course, with those results, Fulham needs more efforts to hope for a ticket to return to the prestigious Premier League playground. In the next round, with staying at home to welcome Preston, Fulham's goal is nothing but 3 points.

As a guest on the West Brom court, it is not surprising that Preston must leave with empty hands and fail to 2 goals. However, it can not be said that this team has played poorly in the past. Because the last 5 rounds they also had 3 victories, not to mention 5 recent marches away from home, Preston had the triumph song up to 3 and lost only 1 game. Having 56 points and 6th place in the rankings partly shows Preston's efforts this season. However, they are only 3 points higher than 7th place, if not careful, they can be knocked out of the Play-Off group at any time. In the first match, Preston defeated Fulham with a final score of 2-1. However, it is also the only time they can do that, while having to receive 3 defeats in the last 5 confrontations.
