Predicted Fulham XI to play Southampton

Match to be played on Saturday 26th October 2013 at 17:30. Venue: St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton.

Fulham recorded a second successive win on Monday night at Crystal Palace to move away from the relegation zone.

On Saturday they'll be traveling to Premier League high-flyers Southampton, who came away from Old Trafford with a point in their last away game.

Martin Jol will be reluctant to tinker with his team too much for their second away game in a week, especially after his team scored four and conceded just once at Selhurst Park, meaning Maarten Stekelenburg will continue in goal, and Kieran Richardson will continue at left-back.

One enforced change may be that of captain Brede Hangeland, who came off at half-time on Monday with a back injury. Fernando Amorebieta, who replaced the Norwegian, will likely deputise.

Winger Pajtim Kasami, who netted an outstanding equaliser in that game, will find himself newly the focus of attention, and Jol will hope the young Swiss can play a part in breaching a miserly Saints defence that has conceded just three goals.

Predicted Fulham XI:


Riether    Senderos    Amorebieta    Richardson

Ruiz         Parker          Sidwell          Kasami

                Bent             Berbatov
