Fulham travel to St James' Park to take on league leaders Newcastle United in what is sure to be an epic contest between two of the form sides in the Championship.

Rafa Benitez' side are currently storming their way to the Premier League and haven't been beaten in the league since the start of January, recently sweeping fellow promotion hopefuls Huddersfield aside.

Meanwhile, Slavisa Jokanovic's team aren't looking too shabby themselves and have won four of their last six games, and that should perhaps even read five after they somehow only managed to draw to Leeds on Tuesday having dominated most of the game.

If you can't make the trip, GetWestLondon will have coverage of the game from 1.30pm, with goal and match updates from kick-off.

Ahead of the game, here's some key information ahead of tomorrow.

When and where?

The game is at St James' Park and kicks off at 3pm.

Manager views

Slavisa Jokanovic: "I am not surprised [that they’re top].

"They made great investments, they are a big club and they deserve to be where they are right now.

"All of our games are tough games, and this one is away against the top Championship team. But we are in a good moment of form and we have got confidence to try and deliver our best performance and fight for the points."

Rafa Benitez: "We did well in a difficult week but we must continue to do the same. There's still a long way to go. Fulham are difficult.

"Fulham are an attacking team. Their offensive stats are great but they concede goals. It will be an open game. Good for the fans.

"We have a good home record. It could be better - it must be better. But it is not easy when teams come to defend."
