Can City carry on their good form? James Chestney hopes so.
Recent visits to the capital have been fruitful for Bruce’s men: the last two wins on the road came in West London so let’s hope we bag the hat trick come 5 o’clock on Saturday.
Going into the game City have no new injury concerns and are hoping to welcome back Alex Bruce, who has trained following a back injury. The trip to SW6 comes too early for captain Michael Dawson though; he is still recovering from the knee injury that saw him withdraw from the Bolton home game in December. Adama Diomande is also still missing and is hoping to be back for next week’s trip to Bury.
News coming out of the Cottage on Friday afternoon was that Fulham forward Ross McCormack is ill and is likely to miss Saturday’s encounter and striker Cauley Woodrow will be unavailable due to a foot injury that he picked up in Fulham’s FA Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday two weeks ago.
