As we start to look forward to seeing our promotion aspirations getting off to a good start against Cardiff City tomorrow, what do the facts and figures tell us we should expect?

1 – Cardiff City have a more than decent record when it comes to home fixtures on the opening day. In the last nine opening day fixtures, Cardiff have won five, drawn three and lost just one.

2 – When it comes to Fulham beating Cardiff City the facts show that it is not something we`ve managed very often recently. In our last five attempts we`ve lost for and drawn the other.

3 – Showing just how topsy-turvy both clubs fortunes have been in recent years, since 1993, this fixture has taken place in each of the four divisions in English football.

4 – Statistics show that Cardiff City will score in this game. Our hosts tomorrow have scored in each of their last fixtures against Fulham, amassing twenty-seven gaols in the process.

5 – Fulham will be looking to tighten up their defence this season. Last season Fulham conceded eighty-three goals, only relegated Blackpool, with ninety-one, conceded more in the Championship.
