Neil Warnock's Middleborough are looking to improve on their 10th place finish from last season. His side will bid to cause a stir in the race for promotion in the Championship, but Boro are tipped for defeat at Craven Cottage. 

  • Marco Silva has replaced Scott Parker as Fulham boss 
  • Fulham striker Aleksander Mitrovic has scored 38 goals in the Championship 
  • Fulham scored just 27 goals in the Premier League last season 
  • Middlesbrough scored 55 goals in the Championship last season 

Head to Head


This will be the seventh meeting between the two sides in the Championship since 2015. Fulham lead the head to head 3-2 with two draws.

A League Cup tie in 2016 almost ended in a draw in 90 minutes before Fulham won 2-1 after extra-time.

Fulham Form


Marco Silva has not had much time settling life into London since replacing Scott Parker, who opted to take over at Bournemouth.

Former Watford and Everton boss Silva has only had the one pre-season game against Charlton to get to know his new squad. 

Fulham won 1-0 and will head into the clash against Middlesbrough with confidence as they prepare for life back in the Championship.

Fulham Team News 


Defender Terence Kongolo and midfielder Tom Cairney will miss the start of the season with knee injuries.

Harrison Reed is a doubt after picking up a knock.

Middlesbrough Form 


Neil Warnock’s side has had the much better preparation heading into the Championship season than their opponents, having played six friendlies.

Warnock had a good track record in the pre-season winning five of the six games and they will fancy their chances of a strong start at Craven Cottage.  

Middlesbrough beat Bishop Auckland, Saltash, Tavistock, Plymouth and Rotherham, but did lose against York. 

Middlesbrough Team News 


Defender Darnell Fisher, midfielder Marcus Browne and forward Sammy Ameobi are all ruled out for Boro.

Argentinian midfielder Martin Payero, who is the sixth summer signing, won't be available for the opening game.
