Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Craven Cottage when Fulham take on Brighton in what is expected to be the most entertaining game of Monday’s program. The Cottagers aim to retain their spot in top six, but beating the Seagulls is easier said than done. Fulham’s match against Reading was suspended due to fog, meaning that they have one game in hand. The capital club have been scoring goals for fun at home this season and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Monday’s football game against Brighton. The Seagulls were not in action on Friday and we predict that coach Chris Hughton is going to field the best possible side against Fulham. Both teams are likely to go for a win in the Craven Cottage showdown and there is every chance both sides will find the net on Matchday 25. In previous three meetings between Fulham and Brighton 11 goals were scored.
