Fulham will be keen to finish the job when they travel to the Stadium of Light for a FA Cup fourth-round replay on Wednesday night. Both sides are playing this replay because the reverse game at Craven Cottage ended in an exciting draw. With nothing to separate them on the score sheet, a replay has been forced to find the winner in this contest. Even though Fulham will be the favourites, Sunderland will back themselves to get the job done in their own backyard.
Despite the reverse game happened at the home of the Premier League side, Sunderland did well to take an early lead through Jack Clarke. However, after the hour mark, a splendid solo effort by Tom Cairney levelled the score for the host. With no more goals to come in that tie, this contest has gone to a replay. Sunderland will hope to produce another gritty performance to keep the visitors at bay, while Fulham will hope to have a bit more cutting edge in front of goal.
Fulham were the dominant of the two sides in the previous game. They had more shots and possession than their opponents, however, Fulham lacked the final product which almost proved costly for them. They would now hope to take their league form into this FA Cup tie. Fulham have 32 points from 22 matches to be placed eight in the Premier League table. On the other hand, Sunderland have 42 points from 29 games to be sitting ninth in the Championship standings.
