Fulham has a lot to do if they want to clinch the final automatic promotion place back into the English Premier League, but are riding strong form heading into Wednesday’s final regular season match.
Tim Ream has continued to be a consistent performer for Fulham, who take on Wigan Athletic in their final match of the season. Should Fulham defeat the Latics, as well as West Bromwich Albion and Brentford suffer defeats, the London club will be back in the EPL. Ream has started all eight matches for Fulham since the resumption of the league season, leading them to a 5-2-1 record over that span. The positive news for Fulham is that Wigan hasn’t defeated the Cottagers since 2006, when both teams were in the Premier League. Ream and his teammates will be asked to put in one final strong performance, hoping luck goes their way on Wednesday night.
