History of the Aston Villa v Fulham fixture

Aston Villa prepare to entertain Fulham at Villa Park at tea-time on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Villans are clearly on top, having won 14 and lost only 5 of the 25 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Villa Park was less than a year ago, in March 2006, when they played out a goalless draw in a Premiership match.
