Fulham to leave Lions’ Den unscathed

Slavisa Jokanovic

Fulham can enhance their automatic promotion hopes – and dent Millwall’s play-off charge – when the Championship’s two in-form teams meet at The Den on Friday.

The Cottagers have won 16 and drawn five of their last 21 fixtures while Millwall have surged up the table on the back of a 17-match unbeaten run.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s third-placed side may just have the quality to edge to a one-goal victory against the Lions – a result that can be backed at 27/10.

On Saturday, already-promoted Wolves can deepen the gloom at Bolton by beating Phil Parkinson’s side at 1/1 while second-placed Cardiff City should have little difficulty seeing off Aitor Karanka’s mid-table Nottingham Forest side, with a 2-0 Bluebirds victory available at 25/4.

There have been some belated signs of life on Wearside but rock-bottom Sunderland still appear doomed despite drawing their last three games.

Chris Coleman’s side have to beat Burton Albion to have any hope of staying up, but there could be more gloom for Black Cats fans as Nigel Clough’s team are good enough to draw at the Stadium of Light at 51/20.

Barnsley have been showing some spirit in the last few weeks although they still find themselves in the bottom three. They are 8/1 to beat Leeds United from behind at Elland Road, a result that would increase the pressure on Birmingham City, who may have to settle for a draw against Sheffield United at 43/20.

Derby County’s play-off push has stalled after a run of only two wins in their last 10 matches and Gary Rowett’s side may have to come from behind to beat Middlesbrough at odds of 29/4.

Finally, Hull City can banish any lingering relegation fears – and make it five victories in their last nine games – by beating Bristol City 2-1 at 10/1.
