It's our second of three fixtures inside a week, and our second in the space of a few days in the capital after Tuesday night's FA Cup third round replay at Tottenham Hotspur. 

And Woodgate knows it will be a test of his squad again tonight, with the Cottagers boasting a strong record on home soil. 

"It's another difficult game, it'll be our third game in six days, so it will be really tough," he said.

"They've got some really exceptional players in the team. It's a boost Mitrovic is injured for us, but they've got players who can fit into that role as well. 

"They've got 26 points from home this season, so they're a really top outfit. Six points off automatic promotion, so it's a really difficult game."
