Both sides have adapted differently to life back in the second tier of English football, with Fulham struggling and the Canaries flying high at the top.
Things have begun to look a little more promising for Fulham in recent weeks, however, with caretaker boss Kit Symons guiding their side to the first win of the campaign before following that up with a 4-0 drubbing of Bolton Wanderers.
Defeat to Middlesbrough last time out means that they remain in the bottom three, though, and their chances of recovering from such a dreadful start and pushing for the playoffs come May get slimmer with every dropped point.
The search for a permanent boss at Craven Cottage continues, although the improvement of results under Symons has led to him becoming one of the standout candidates, and another victory over the league leaders this weekend would do his case no harm whatsoever.
Even so, they have been fairly fortunate that the teams around them have also dropped points recently, having won just one of their last five outings in all competitions.
That victory did come in their last away outing, however, and their form on the road this season has been highly impressive with 12 points from a possible 12 since their opening-day defeat.
They have found the net 11 times on their travels during that spell, helping to make them the league's highest scorers so far with 21 goals.
