    Got to get back on the horse against a similar team. Birmingham has turned it around since they struggled early in the campaign and sit in 11th spot, 3 points above Fulham. The Blues are coming off two straight 0-0 league results so 1 goal might be enough. However, not too confident at being able to keep a clean sheet. Hoping for a 2-1 victory, but 1-1 or 1-2 seems more likely.

    It's a must win for me. Can't lose to similar sides at home and not expect to struggle to stay safely above the relegation zone. Ain't gonna be easy. They are better than they were when we played at St. Andrews.

    Hoping for 1-0. If we need more than one we might be in trouble.

    Some interesting tidbits in the team news. http://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2015/february/06/team-news

    Hoogland and Amorebieta will play half the U-21 match today which means first team action should be resumed very soon. Parker is doubtful with an illness. And Ruiz is in limbo and cannot play.

    Birmingham City haven't lost in the Championship since Boxing Day. I'm a little concerned by the team news and the new additions. Hopefully Jazz Richards has gelled a little more with the rest of the team. We're at the Cottage though, so I'll say 2-1 victory for Fulham.

    We miss Parker. That veteran presence in midfield means a lot.

    Only going by the match report, but a decent performance. Too bad they weren't able to grab those 2 extra points in the second half.

    The highlights:


    Based on these two minutes I'd say we were lucky not to go down 2-1 or even 3-1 in the first half. Birmingham repeatedly got behind our back four, but they never did convert. At least we seemed to adjust and shut them down in the second half. Nice work between Christensen and Rodallega on the first goal.
