FULHAM are flying at the moment and next up they face a Sunderland side who were the last Champioship team to defeat them. Thomas Thorn (@TomTomDRFC) shares his betting verdict for Friday night's game at Craven Cottage.
Fulham v Sunderland | Friday 27th April 2018, 19:45 | Sky Sports
Fulham currently sit 3rd in the Championship and will still be eyeing to pip Cardiff to the final automatic promotion place. After Cardiff’s defeat in the week, the Cottagers sit one point behind the Welsh team.
The London side impressed on the box last week with a 3-0 away win against in-form Millwall and Fulham’s last defeat in the league was back in December against their next opponents, Sunderland.
Due to Burton and Bolton needing to play each other, a 2-1 defeat at home to Burton was enough to seal Sunderland’s fate and relegate them to League One. With one win in 16 matches, Chris Coleman’s side are rock bottom of the Championship
The last time these two teams met Sunderland won courtesy of a Josh Maja goal, however with Fulham in fine form and Sunderland relegated, it could be a different story come Friday.
Previous form would suggest this will be a one-sided affair with Fulham comfortably beating a team that are now preparing for life in a lower league.
Whilst there may not be any value in Fulham winning at 1/4, in the form they’re in the London side should comfortably breeze past Sunderland in their attempt to reach the Premier League.
One of, if not the hottest prospects in the Championship is Ryan Sessegnon. 15 goals in 44 matches has helped Fulham to where they are and the 17 year old will be hoping to finish off the job for Fulham.
After scoring last week against Millwall he will be hungry to add to his tally. Sessegnon to score and Fulham to win is evens with Boylesports.
