An estimated 3,000 to 4,000 fans will descend on Craven Cottage tomorrow with dreams of success for Norwich City.
But where should the Canary Army head if they fancy a pre-match tipple with fellow supporters?
Situated next to the River Thames, the usual away pubs in Fulham are only a stone's throw from the ground.
The Duke's Head, on Lower Richmond Road (SW15 1JN), is a Victorian building which has overlooked the River Thames for nearly 150 years and is a firm favourite for football fans.
With an outside area for drinks, food stands and a view of Craven Cottage, the Duke's Head is an ideal place for a pre-match beer and a pre-match chat.

Just round the corner is the Star and Garter – another pub whose location on Lower Richmond Road (SW15 1JN) sets them in good stead to be well populated by supporters.
Manager Nick Sallissolia confirmed that the pub was often filled with those going to and from games at the nearby ground.
'We have a great outside area where fans can chat – there'll be a lot but we are ready for tomorrow and we have got enough people on. It should be good,' he added.
And if these don't draw you in, Donald Parish, from Capital Canaries, has a couple of other names to suggest.
He said: 'There's a pub called The Eight Bells which is near Putney Bridge so there will be lots of Norwich fans there tomorrow. Also, there's another called the Bricklayer's Arms which is very popular.'
The Eight Bells is on 89 Fulham High Street (SW6 3JS), while the Bricklayer's Arms is on Waterman Street (SW15 1DD).
