Writing in his weekly predictions piece for BBC Sport, Mark Lawrenson tipped Sean Dyche's side to win the game 2-0.

Justifying his prediction, the ex-Liverpool star contended: “Fulham are another side whose time in the top flight is running out. Even a win here will only delay the inevitable.

“Burnley know a point will make absolutely sure they are safe, but I am expecting them to get all three.”

Lawro's sparring partner for the week, The Sherlocks drummer and Sheffield Wednesday fan Brandon Cook, backed a 1-1 draw, and simply stated: “This is a tough one to predict but I don't think Fulham will get the win they need.”

Meanwhile, Dyche has given his take on Burnley's turn around in form this season, and revealed: “We’ve come a long way, I’ve mentioned it a lot lately because we have, since game seven when we had two points.

“I haven’t lost sight of that, we’ve had to put a lot of hard work in to this season and still have work to go. But if you would have said to me then we’d be where we are now, I’d have absolutely ripped your hands off.“I think the performance levels are good, the energy is good, the commitment to the cause is excellent, so I expect us to see out the season properly and play against whoever we play against to try and win.”
