Newcastle Test At The Cottage

Thursday 15 October 2015 14:00

Fulham Under-21s will be looking to get back to winning ways against Newcastle United on Friday evening at Craven Cottage in the Barclays U21 Premier League Division Two.

Peter Grant’s side were soundly beaten on their travels last time out in an uncharacteristic display that saw them lose 3-0 away at Derby County, having beaten Blackburn Rovers by the same scoreline previously.

It’s been a Jekyll and Hyde season so far for the Whites with three wins and three defeats leaving them in mid-table, as they look for the consistency to fire them towards the top end of the table.

Matt Smith is set to make his comeback from injury on Friday and will lead the line for Grant’s side as he closes on a return to First Team action.

Newcastle have endured a tough start to the season and having failed to register a win so far, they find themselves struggling at the wrong end of the table.

They have just three points to their name but are unbeaten in their last two, with draws against West Ham United and most recently Swansea City.

Tickets will be available for fans to buy from turnstiles in the Johnny Haynes Stand, priced at £3 adults and £1 juniors.
