Sunderland Team News:

Paul McShane is still banned off his Red card from the Arsenal game
Dwight Yorke and Anthony Stokes are hopeful.
Player to watch: Liam Miller
Liam has been in superb form of late and he will look to continue it against Fulham.
Fulham Team News:
Fulham are without Jimmy Bullard, Brian McBride, Lee Cook, Kasey Keller, Ian Pearce, Philippe Christanval and Moritz Volz.
Paul Koncheskey is banned.

The Ex Leeds striker has been in good form this season. He will be a handful and our defence will have to be on their toes to keep him quite.
Match Facts & Stats
In our 6 meetings with Fulham on Wearside we have Won 3, Lost 1 and Drew 2.
Last time at the Stadium of Light we won 2-1 Anthony Le Tallec and Chris Brown were on target with Thomas Radzinski pulling one back for Fulham late in the second half.
I think it will be a hard fought affair that we will just sneak.
1-0 Home win.
