Magpies, Fulham desperate for points



Newcastle United will aim continue their mini-revival at Craven Cottage on Monday against a Fulham side who themselves are experiencing a slump. Kickoff is at 10pm CAT (SA, GMT+2), Live on SS3, SSHD3, Maximo and supersport.com

Alan Pardew's visitors started the season with expectations of qualifying for the Uefa Champions League after the last campaign's impressive fifth-placed Premier League finish.

But Newcastle will kick-off in London in 14th position after taking just a disappointing 17 points from 15 games, leaving them one spot behind Fulham on goal difference.

Injuries and suspensions have hampered the North East club but they did at least end a run of four successive Premier League defeats by beating 10-man Wigan Athletic last Monday.

Fulham, though, will not be in an accommodating mood and Martin Jol will be demanding his players end a seven-game winless run which has seen them sink down the table.

Jol's former club, Tottenham Hotspur, comfortably won 3-0 at Craven Cottage in Fulham's last match and, in their previous home game, Sunderland left London with maximum points.

Fulham have in fact won just one of the last five Premier League home games but they can fall back on a good record against Newcastle, having lost just once in their last six meetings.
