I can confirm the Stamford Bridge game, but do not recall the date (late-1980s/early 1990s?). One of 7 home grounds I've seen Fulham etc... play on. It was against a short-lived team from Cardiff or nearby in South Wales and was played on a Friday night before the Challenge Cup final at Wembley. The hope was to attract a big crowd - my recollection is that only a rather small crowd turned out.
My main memory of the evening was that you could sit wherever you liked in the East Stand. So I sat in a big comfy seat in the Director's Box in the middle tier. Ken Bates' seat I like to think.
