CHERRIES boss Scott Parker refused to be drawn on comparisons between Fulham frontman Aleksandar Mitrovic and Cherries ace Dominic Solanke.

Two of the Championship’s best marksmen are set to go toe-to-toe at Craven Cottage when their respective sides meet in the league tomorrow.

Mitrovic heads the division’s scoring charts at present, with 21 goals from 19 league games.

Cherries frontman Solanke has netted 15 times from 20 appearances in the second tier this campaign.

Serbian striker Mitrovic scored 31 goals from 81 fixtures in total under Parker.

But since arriving at Cherries in the summer, the former Fulham head coach has already helped Solanke eclipse his goal record from last season in all competitions.

Asked to compare the two frontmen, Parker said: “Two very, very good centre forwards, who score goals.

“Mitrovic is very important to Fulham, like Dominic Solanke is very important to us.

“Two very, very good forwards, I wouldn’t want to engage in that one.”

Victory in west London would send Cherries back to the top of the Championship table ahead of the Cottagers.

Parker’s side are currently seven points clear of third-placed Queen’s Park Rangers in the race for automatic promotion.
