 Newcastle V Fulham | Preview

Newcastle V Fulham | Preview

After our little jaunt to the far side of the continent for a touch of European football out in Ukraine, it’s back to league action with our longest domestic trip of the season. Fulham are off to pay a visit to a Newcastle side who haven't scored against us in the last three meetings and are currently on a poor run of form against teams from London, having won one out of their last ten league games against Londoners.
