Watch English Premier League match, Fulham Vs Reading highlights here.

Venue: Craven Cottage
Date: Saturday, 4 May, 2013
Kick off: 15:00 GMT.


Fulham have lost just one of their last seven home games against Reading. Their last meeting at Craven Cottage in November 2007 ended with a 3-1 home win.

This season’s reverse fixture on 27 October ended in a 3-3 draw and left the Royals still searching for their first Premier League win of the season.


The Cottagers have picked up the fewest points in the Premier League this season from a losing position (5).

Fulham failed to register a shot on target (excluding blocked shots) in the 1-0 defeat at Everton last weekend.

Half of Fulham’s 14 league goals in 2013 have been scored by Dimitar Berbatov, while there have been three own goals.

The 2-2 draw against Sunderland on 2 March was the last time a Fulham player other than Berbatov found the back of the net; Sascha Riether was the scorer.

Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer will be making his 550th appearance in English football.


Reading are without a win in their last 10 outings (D2, L8). Their last victory came against Sunderland on 2 February.

The Royals’ clean sheet against QPR last time out was just their fifth of the season, the joint-worst record in the league with Wigan, Aston Villa and Newcastle.

They have only won two games this season when they have either been level or ahead at half-time (W2, D8, L9).

Ten of Reading’s 37 Premier League goals this term have come from substitutes.

Ian Harte is on the verge of his 100th appearance for Reading.
