Derby County pack their bags to visit Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rams will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 14 and win only 5 of the 27 games.
The previous match played between the two at Craven Cottage was within the last three years, in February 2005, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 2 thriller, in an F.A. Cup match.
