Fulham and Brede Hangeland will be hoping to keep a clean sheet against Hull City.

Monday night at Craven Cottage will see Fulham face fellow premiership strugglers, Hull City, visiting London. Both teams are in a need for points as they are currently stuck at the bottom half of the Premier League. A winner here would definitely pull either club out of the dangers of the relegation zone and Fulham look favorable here.

Roy Hodgson’s men are set to help the club to celebrate their 130th anniversary by beating Hull City on Monday night. Fulham have a solid defense and plays in a strict traditional 4-4-2 formation. Their attacking drive will come from Danny Murphy and Clinton Dempsey to feed the striker, Andrew Johnson, who is still searching to find his form. Hodgson will be without suspended Kagisho Dikagcoi as he will start his three match ban suspension and Simon Davis is ruled doubtful. Irish winger, Damien Duff, returns to the squad from a calf injury.

The Tigers will hope that the international break has helped them to regroup and find their mentality to cope with the upcoming matches. They have been struggling and currently placed 18th in the Premiership, just on the wrong end of the relegation line. Coach Phil Brown will hope that their fortune with change with Jimmy Bullard and Anthony Gardner returning to the squad from injuries. Hull with be without Cooper (hamstring), Ashbee and Garcia, both sustaining knee injuries.

Fulham did the double over Hull last season and that something Roy Hodgson knows he has to repeat if he wants to avoid the relegation dog fight. Hull City have not won an away game since they encounter against West Bromwich Albion back in October 2008. They also conceded ten goals in their last two away game and Fulham could set to take advantage of the situation. Check out Betsson is offering Fulham to win at 1.70.
