Fulham and Huddersfield Town go into their showdown at Craven Cottage searching for their first victories of the new Championship season.
It is the Cottagers’ first full campaign under Kit Symons, yet it has began with them on the receiving end of late blows.
They were denied all three points by Craig Noone’s 86th-minute strike against Cardiff City on the opening weekend, while Tomer Hemed’s stoppage-time penalty snatched victory for Brighton & Hove Albion at the Cottage.
Sone Aluko then broke their hearts four minutes from time against Hull City on Wednesday, and they will be looking to bounce back against the Terriers.
Chris Powell’s men endured a tough start as they lost to Hull on the opening weekend and suffered a shock Capital One Cup exit at the hands of League Two Notts County.
However, they have responded well by holding Blackburn Rovers and Brighton to 1-1 draws at John Smith’s Stadium.
They must upset the head-to-head form book if they are to get that first win on the board, having lost each of the previous five meetings with Fulham and last beat them in 1993.
Both clashes last season produced comfortable wins for the Cottagers – 3-1 at home and 2-0 in Yorkshire.
