Sports Mole looks ahead to the all-London clash between Fulham and West Ham United at Craven Cottage.

This London derby will have a bit more than just local pride riding on it on Wednesday evening.

While neither side is deemed to be in major relegation trouble at this moment in time, a defeat at Craven Cottage, coupled with victories for a some of the teams below them could well result in the loser being drawn towards the drop zone.

Hosting Fulham do not have the best of records in front of their own supporters this season, having collected 12 points from a possible 33.

However, in West Ham United they will take on a side that has recorded just two wins on the road - both of which came against fellow strugglers Queens Park Rangers and Newcastle United.

Fulham manager Martin Jol may make a couple of changes to his starting lineup, with Hugo Rodallega and Georgios Karagounis tipped to earn a recall.

Meanwhile, Joe Cole and Matt Jarvis should both return for the away side, having missed out on a place in the team during the 5-1 defeat to Arsenal last time out.
