Fulham vs Sheffield United: Match preview

Fulham’s habit of being unable to turn draws into losses once again came back to haunt them on Wednesday as they were held to a draw with Burnley.

Ola Aina’s strike against the Clarets was cancelled out by an Ashley Barnes goal leaving the Cottagers with just a point.

Parker’s side managed to secure a win for just the second time last weekend as they stunned Everton by winning 2-0 at Goodison Park.

Maja managed to score a brace on his debut, but at Turf Moor neither he nor Fulham were able to build on the win.

The west London club remain in the bottom three and find themselves six points adrift of safety.
