History of the Middlesbrough v Fulham fixture

Middlesbrough prepare to entertain Fulham at Riverside Stadium on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Boro are clearly on top, winning 54.17% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Riverside Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.
