Fulham will be hoping for better fortune on Saturday as they travel to Goodison Park, a ground where they have lost in each of their last 11 attempts.

This incredible barren run without victory will not be easily overturned with Everton battling for the European qualification spots.

The Cottagers are also looking to avoid a third consecutive defeat, while the Toffees will also look to bounce back after defeat at Sunderland. 

Everton and United States keeper Tim Howard believes the home record will count for nothing on Saturday, and told Everton's club website he and his team-mates must concentrate on the game as an individual.

"The record sounds good and hopefully we can add to it, but I think every game is its own single entity. Those previous games aren't going to really matter when the whistle blows on Saturday."

To add to the already difficult task, Martin Jol's side may not be at full strength for the trip to Merseyside, with Sascha Riether and Damien Duff likely to miss out again after not featuring in Saturday's defeat by Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Steve Sidwell will definitely be absent after he was dismissed for a nasty lunge on Mikel Arteta against the Gunners.

Fulham who are all but safe from relegation on 40 points are already preparing for the 2013/14 campaign.

One player that will not be donning the white shirt next season though is on loan AC Milan midfielder Urby Emanuelson, who Jol confirmed earlier this week will leave the club at the end of the season.
