Good evening! It's the penultimate weekend of the Championship season. Can Fulham.go back into the top two by beating screwed Sunderland?

Fulham name an unchanged side for a fourth game in a row. They are one point behind second-placed Cardiff, and are unbeaten for months

As for Sunderland, toxic Sunderland. They're already down. Just a case of not finishing bottom in a disastrous season. Three changes to the starting lineup as manager Chris Coleman goes back to Craven Cottage. Robson, Ejaria and Asoro all in after last week's loss to Burton. Cattermole is out injured, with 16 year old Mamba on the bench

I'm going to go for a draw, because a) I'm mad b) "At this stage of the season, anything can happen" c) Sunderland are slightly less of a shambles away from home. Kickoff 15 minutes away

Intimidating atmosphere at Craven Cottage as ever...

And here come the teams...Sunderland in light blue

We're underway! 0-0 (1)

Cairney is down and in a bit of pain, slips on a wet pitch (has been rainy here in West London) and took a knock from Robson toon 0-0 (2)

Cairney is up and about but not right yet. Fulham with most of the ball in the early stages. 0-0 (5)
