We`re at the stage of the season whereby the nerves are starting to kick-in.

After what can best be described as a stop-start opening first-half of the season, a splendid 20-game unbeaten run has put Fulham in a position whereby they could actually snatch one of the automatic promotion places.

The 1-0 win, at home to Reading, saw Fulham jump in to second place, in the table, 1 point ahead of Cardiff City, although the Welsh side have a game in hand.

Fulham have four games left, 2 at home and 2 away, maximum points from those four games (see below):

Saturday 14th April 2018 – 17:30
Fulham v Brentford

Friday 20th April 2018 – 19:45
Millwall v Fulham

Friday 27th April 2018 – 19:45
Fulham v Sunderland

Sunday 6th May 2018 – 12:30
Birmingham City v Fulham

would put immense pressure on a Cardiff City side that have hit a bad run of results, losing their last two games.

However, nestling amongst Fulham`s games is a tough London derby away to a Millwall side that are on a run of results that almost matches ours.

But what lies in store for Cardiff City?

Neil Warnock`s side have 5 games left, 2 at home and 3 away, (see below):

Saturday 14th April 2018 – 15:00
Norwich City v Cardiff City

Saturday 21st April 2018 – 19:45
Cardiff City v Nottingham Forest

Tuesday 24th April 2018 – 19:45
Derby County v Cardiff City

Saturday 28th April 2018 – 15:00
Hull City v Cardiff City

Sunday 6th May 2018 – 12:30
Cardiff City v Reading

Amongst possible banana-skins are trips to Derby County and Hull City, although you get the feeling that the Bluebirds may have to lose both of them for Fulham to hang on to that second place they currently hold.

Whichever way this one swings it`s going to be an exciting ending to the season.
