Fulham travel to Sheffield Wednesday with the hope of closing the gap on Cardiff and the automatic promotion places.

Fulham are in fine form, and after having 3 players represented in the Championship team of the year, they should be bouyed to take advantage of Cardiffs slip last night. If they are to succeed, they will need the likes of Tom Cairney and Ryan Sessegnon to be in top form.

Sheffield Wednesday have little to play for in comparison. Unable to make the play-offs now and safe from the drop. The Owls are now playing for pride more than anything. With Atdhe Nuhiu in fine form, they will be hoping to ruin Fulhams chances of Premier League promotion this season.
