Fulham will be hoping that they can continue to keep the pressure on the top-two in the Championship when football returns to our lives.
The Cottagers are currently sat third in the second tier standings, and are six points adrift of West Brom with just nine games remaining in this year’s campaign.
Scott Parker’s side have shown their quality on numerous occasions this term, and will be keen to put together a positive run of results when the sporting calendar gets back underway.
However, that push for promotion has been put on hold for the time being, with recent off-the-field events bringing an abrupt halt to proceedings.
No scheduled return date has been set in the EFL as of yet, as the relevant authorities continue to monitor the off-the-field situation over the next few weeks.
One player that has been impressive since signing for the Scott Parker’s Fulham side is Michael Hector, who has made 13 senior appearances since arriving from Chelsea in January.
Hector recently took to Instagram to reveal that he’s missing competitive action with the Cottagers, and made the hilarious statement in saying that he’s excited to kick the ball into the Thames.

I think the majority of football fans will agree with him in saying they’re missing competitive action.
Hector has been brilliant since coming into the starting XI, and he’ll be a key player to rely on for Scott Parker heading into the final nine games of this year’s campaign.
I’d be surprised if Fulham were able to catch West Brom and Leeds before the end of the season, but I think they’ve got enough quality in their side to win the play-offs and return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Hector will be hoping he can prove a point in the top-flight as well, after struggling for any sort of opportunity with Chelsea earlier in his career.
