Fulham sit in 21st place with one point from their first three matches while Town are one point and one place above them.

Kit Symons' side haven't had a great start to the season as late goals has cost the Cottagers dear. They conceded a late equaliser on the opening day against Cardiff City and have lost two on the bounce letting in late goals against Brighton and Hull City.

An overhaul of the squad is taking place at Craven Cottage with high earners being moved off the wage bill this summer.

Town also lost to Hull on the opening day of the campaign and have drawn their last two matches in home fixtures against Blackburn and Brighton.

Fulham have been a bit of a bogey side for the visitors as the Terriers have not beaten the West London side in their last seven competitive fixtures between the two sides.

Town's last win against Fulham was on 25 September 1993 when Stuart Hicks scored the only goal of the game at the old Leeds Road ground.
