Fulham v Newcastle United: match preview

Alan Pardew begins his three-match stadium ban here and Felix Magath may soon find himself wishing he were not at Craven Cottage too. The German was plunged into a mess and his three games in charge have yet to produce any evidence that he can tidy it up. Fulham's best hope of getting their first win league win since New Year's Day could lie in the attitude of their opponents, but, after going through an indifferent spell, Newcastle have won their last two matches and seem to have their heads in the right places again.
