PREVIEW: Fulham v Hull City

Leonid Slutsky apologised to the fans following Friday's abysmal showing at Derby County. Just as well that match wasn't on the telly and broadcast to the whole nation... oh. Yet, Slutsky is hardly the villain of this piece. Being told 'the supermarket is shut' only to see two key members of the squad leave shortly after, tells you all you need to know about the hollow words of the Allams. For now, the Russian will be low down on the hit-list for who to blame concerning the current shenanigans going on at this club.

Can City cash in at Craven Cottage?

Indeed, the City boss has received some positive news on the injury front, as Fraizer Campbell is added to the squad that will travel to London, after he overcame a recent groin problem that was troubling the striker. Jackson Irvine will be hoping to get a full debut in midfield following his move from Burton Albion late in the transfer window, after a brief appearance from the bench during the mismatch with Derby County.

On to Fulham, then. Surprisingly, the Cottagers are yet to win a home game this season. Then, along come Hull City, right on cue... However, before we all throw our collective hands up in despair, the Tigers' record at Craven Cottage is pretty good - and we won there last time we met in the league. Ex-Tiger Tom Cairney is still missing from the team through injury, along with Sheyi Ojo. But, manager Slavisa Jokanovic is hoping to welcome back Rui Fonte and Neeskens Kebano to his selection options.
