Fulham v Newcastle: match preview

Fulham welcome fans back to Craven Cottage, albeit only 2,000 thanks in part to their stadium redevelopment, but it will not be for the relegation showdown they had once anticipated. Scott Parker’s side are playing for pride and it is likely to be a farewell for several of their players, particularly the raft of loanees who have filled out their squad. “This team has never let anyone down through a lack of effort, pride or professionalism,” Parker said. He will hope they curb Joe Willock’s hot streak for Newcastle, who could yet finish as high as 12th. Nick Ames
