Both teams play the passing game and there is an extra edge as both are desperate to turn around a downturn of recent fortunes in the Premiership.
We've been left reeling by four successive defeats but Fulham have gone five in the Premiership without a win.
Jean Tigana has promised to stick to his principles despite Fulham's dip in form and midfielder Tim pointed out: "They were outstanding in the First Division, came up and they've found it difficult but they still try to play good stuff and it will be a good footballing game.
"For us, it's all about sticking the ball in the net and trying not to concede at the other end."
Assistant boss John added: "They've had similar problems to those we've had over the last few games.
"We know it will be a hard game but both sides play good football and it will be a good game.
"We've beaten them twice now and hopefully that will count for something.
"In the last game, although we won 4-0, they started very well and looked sharp. They are a good team, play in a good style and it has the makings of a great game.
"They have exciting players and with John Collins, experience in there as well. They play a good brand of football and I'm looking forward to it."
John Gorman and Tim Sherwood are expecting a cracking footballing encounter against Fulham on Sunday.
