Sports pundit David Prutton is predicting a surprise victory for Fulham at West Bromwich Albion when the two sides meet tonight.
The former Nottingham Forest and Leeds United midfielder thinks Slaven Bilic ‘s side will slip up against the Cottagers.
Prutton is predicting a 2-1 win for Fulham, whose form has improved dramatically with four wins on the spin putting them back in the automatic promotion picture.
Second-placed Albion need a positive result from tonight’s game to take another step toward a return to the Premier League.
Albion host Fulham this evening knowing they are just three results away from winning promotion to the Premier League.
At this stage of the season, points are the only thing that really matter.
But if Slaven Bilic’s side can win tonight, it will not only give them an enormous confidence boost – it will also send a huge message to their automatic promotion rivals.
Despite a sluggish first few games, the Baggies have actually been very good since football was able to return following the coronavirus pandemic.
They go into tonight’s match having taken 10 points from a possible 12.
The trouble is Brentford have done even better – with Thomas Franks’ side aiming for their eighth consecutive victory when they host Preston North End tomorrow.
It is Albion’s draw against Blackburn on Saturday that has led to anxiety levels increasing ahead of tonight’s game.
