Market: Aleksandar Mitrović to score anytime
Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport
Looking to make it back-to-back Championship victories on Wednesday night, Fulham will welcome a struggling Cardiff to Craven Cottage.
Starting with the hosts, while Fulham might have struggled with their consistency when heading into the international break, they certainly marked their return with a real flurry over the weekend. Picking up west London bragging rights as they stormed their way to a 4-1 victory against local rivals QPR, Marco Silva’s side should be smelling a golden chance on Wednesday night. Tipped as a leading pick to book an immediate Premier League return, the Cottagers also have one attacking talisman enjoying a real purple patch. Once again bagging a brace last weekend, Aleksandar Mitrović has really hit the ground running since opening up the 2021/22 campaign. In fact, the Serbia striker has already racked up a hugely impressive 12 Championship goals so far.
As for the visitors, while Fulham might be coming off the back of a derby win, the same cannot be said for a Cardiff side who are in the midst of a real crisis. Blown away against bitter rivals Swansea when returning from the international break, Mick McCarthy’s side suffered a hugely worrying 3-0 drumming on the road. Freefalling their way down the Championship table and firmly looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, the Blues are currently enduring a woeful six-match losing run. With that run also highlighted by a 4-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom last month, the former Wolves boss finds himself under real pressure. Remarkably managing to find the net on just one occasion on their six-match losing run, there is no doubt that Cardiff face a stern test in the capital on Wednesday night.
