Whites Head To Blues

Sunday 25 November 2012 12:30

An away trip to London rivals Chelsea awaits Fulham’s Under-21s on Monday evening (7pm).

The clash will now take place at the Blues' Cobham training ground and will be played behind closed doors, with Fulham hoping for a similar result to the last time they faced Chelsea in early October.

That evening at a rain-soaked Craven Cottage, a fine Charles Banya effort and a Marcello Trotta brace saw Fulham overcome Chelsea 3-1.

Last Monday, Fulham slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough. Andy Halliday put Boro in front from the spot and, after Josh Pritchard had hit the woodwork, Luke Williams made sure of the points for the hosts.

Kit Symons said: “I actually thought this was an evenly matched game, and had we made more of our early chances then perhaps we could have had something to show. I thought we played some good football in patches, it’s just a shame that we didn’t make the most of that. No one likes losing, so we’ll have to move on and make sure we bounce back.”
