Fulham - Blackburn Rovers

Fulham plays very well this season. After excellent home record, they surprisingly lost from Hull 0:1 and FA Cup against Man.Utd..With three points from this game they would involve in fight for European qualifications. The main problem is a slap they got at Saturday. They simply weren't good enough to play equally with Utd. 0:4 at home always hurts. I expect their cautious approach, 0:0 on half-time is more than real. Hodgson has no new concerns about starting eleven, same team from Saturday is possible.

On the other half will be Rovers with Sam Allardyce in charge. Since Big Sam came in club, they're improving the shape. In the last two rounds they won against Hull City (2:1 away) and grab a point against excellent Everton (0:0 at home). Quality demonstrated in those two games is more than enough for avoiding relegation. And, be serious, can anybody imagine Blackburn in Championship?!Allardyce is unsatisfied with physical condition of his players. Roque Santa Cruz is in big doubt for tonight. First two goalkeepers,Robinson and Brown, are injured, but they (or one of them) will be fit for sure. Pedersen is back after suspension.

The hosts will try to make things better after humiliation, but another defeat can make a big problem. Visitors have an opportunity to make a run from danger zone. I give little advantage to Blackburn, but draw looks fine for both. So, my prediction (with small stake-gamble bet) is draw.
