Fulham v Aston Villa betting preview
Fulham are battling hard to haul themselves into the play-offs before the end of the season. The Londoners have been lurking on the edge of the top six for some time now and although they haven't yet been able to break into the coveted positions, they have at least narrowed the gap in terms of points with just three points now separating them from 4th placed Leeds.
It's fair to say that a lack of consistency has been the only thing holding back this very talented young squad that Slavisa Jokanovic has moulded at Craven Cottage. After winning three of their last four championship matches however, we think the hosts will have the confidence to earn themselves another vital three points here at 17/20 with William Hill
Aston Villa have endured a difficult season in the Sky Bet Championship. Following last year's humiliating relegation from the Premier League, the club were clearly stuck in something of a losing run in the early stages of the campaign and as he failed to haul his side out of that poor form, Roberto di Matteo was sacked and replaced with Steve Bruce.
The former Hull City and Wigan Athletic man has been given money to spend in January and he's used that to steady the ship and lead the side to some improved performances in the second half of the season. Recent form has been terrific and the Villains have lost just one of their last nine Championship games, although they remain underdogs for this tough away game at odds of 16/5 with Sky Bet
Goals seem to feature in any Fulham match. Eight of the Cottagers' last nine Championship matches have seen both teams to score bets come in and in Jonathan Kodjia and Scott Hogan, they'll have to face two of the division's most dangerous strikers of the season in this game. The hosts are rightly favourites but we're backing the home win and both teams to score bet at odds of 23/10 with Paddy Power
Chris Martin will miss this match through suspension following his red card at Norwich on Good Friday, so Tom Cairney will shoulder the goalscoring burden in this one. The midfielder found the net for the tenth time this season at Carrow Road and had a chance to add another late on. The 26 year old is priced at 9/4 with bet365
