In a little over two hours our FA Cup 3rd round tie, against Cardiff City will kick-off.

An 11:30 hours kick-off, on a Sunday morning, isn`t the ideal time to start but those who pay the TV money seem to rule the game.

Ahead of the game we`ve looked through the record and form books and come up with some interesting facts for your perusal:

? The last time Fulham met Cardiff City was back in August, in a Championship game at Craven Cottage, the game ended 2-2.

? Cardiff City, when it comes to venue, seem to have had the luck of the draw in the FA Cup in recent times. The Welsh side have been drawn at home on the last 5 occasions. However, we should point out they`ve lost 4 of the last 4.

? Fulham, in their last 7 FA Cup ties, have been taken to a replay.

? The last time Fulham won an FA Cup match was back in January 2014. Since then they`ve played 7, drawing 4 and losing 3.

? Fulham go to Cardiff having kept just 1 clean sheet in their last 13 away games.
