Fulham could seal Championship title against Forest

Three Championship games take place on Tuesday evening with Marco Silva’s Fulham seeking to potentially win the title outright if they better Bournemouth’s result at Swansea.

A 3-0 win at home to Preston last week saw the Cottagers return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

They have been the dominant force in the Championship this season and will be looking to end their season with three wins.

They could have a big impact on the automatic promotion race with Nottingham Forest (Match betting – Fulham 10/11, draw 11/4, Nottingham Forest 3/1) travelling to West London on Tuesday night.

Steve Cooper’s men are currently fourth in the table, five points adrift of second lace Bournemouth with four games remaining.

Forest secured a narrow 1-0 win at Peterborough on Saturday and closed the gap to Bournemouth as they could only draw 1-1 at home to Fulham, though a late equaliser from Dominic Solanke will have put an extra spring in their step.

The Cherries are in action on Tuesday as they travel to Russell Martin’s Swansea (Match betting – Swansea 3/1, draw 5/2, Bournemouth EVS) who are eight matches unbeaten and ending the Championship season with a flurry.

Bournemouth could go tantalisingly close to promotion if they win and Forest fail to beat Fulham.

However, boss Scott Parker says he is only thinking about the Swansea game as believes the Welsh side could pose “difficulties” to them.

“They have a real identity about them and the way they play. Russell Martin has done a very good job there,” he told reporters.

“It’s going to bring many difficulties for us going to their place because they have a real identity about them in the way they play.

The third Championship game on Tuesday is a dead rubber between relegated Barnsley and mid tale Blackpool (Match betting – Barnsley 21/10, draw 12/5, Blackpool 11/8) at Oakwell.

Martin Devaney takes charge of the Tykes following the departure of boss Poya Asbaghi after relegation.
