GAMEDAY – Fulham Away

Blues travel to Craven Cottage today for their first game after the international break hoping to continue their winning ways against a Fulham team flying at the top of the division.


The Cottagers currently lie in 2nd place, having taken 11 points from their first five games and are yet to be beaten in the league this term.

Manager Slavisa Jokanovic may hand debuts to three new signings today – Lucas Piazon, Chris Martin and Stefan Johansen as Fulham look to continue their fine league form.


New signing Lukas Jutkiewicz could come in for his first start after coming in on loan from Burnley but it’s too soon for Rhoys Wiggins, who needs time to come up to matchday fitness having not played since January.

Blues may well however start with the team that comprehensively beat Norwich before the break.


Barring any late changes, Tony Harrington will take charge of this game. He’s been in the middle for five games so far this season, showing 25 yellow cards. His last Blues game was the 3-0 Boxing Day bashing by Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough last year, in which he booked two players – Paul Caddis and Jacques Maghoma.
