On Friday, Fulham take the one hundred-mile (plus) trip to Carrow Road, to take on Norwich City in a Championship fixture.

A club record 16-game unbeaten run has revived the Cottagers hopes of gaining promotion to the Premier League, come May.

But, what do the record and form books tell us to expect with regards to our Easter sojourn to Norfolk?

? According to the record books, Fulham have a decent record against Norwich. The last 21 games, between the two sides in all competitions, have seen Fulham win 14, draw 6 and lose just the 1, let`s hope that run continues.

? The only defeat in the statistic mentioned above was a 4-2 loss, at Carrow Road, back in May 2015.

? Away trips to Carrow Road have also proved profitable for Fulham in recent times, the last 8 games have yielded 5 wins, 2 draws and that single loss mentioned above, another record we`d like to extend methinks.

? Those attending the game can expect a display of passing football, the statistics show that Norwich and Fulham are the two sides in the Championship that have attempted the fewest long-balls with 2,464 and 2,244 respectively.

? When it comes to pressing the opposition in their own half and keeping up the pressure, Fulham have completed a staggering 8,718 passes in the opposition half, no other Championship side can get within a 1,000 of that figure.

? When it comes to short passes, Fulham have the four players who have completed the highest number of short passes in the Championship, the quartet being Stefan Johansen, Tom Cairney, Kevin McDonald and Tim Ream.

So, there you have it, the statistics show that with regards to this game, Fulham will win, Fulham will press Norwich back into their own half with a passing game and a number of short passes will open up the Canaries defence for Fulham to get the break through needed.

Easy this game isn`t it!
