Fulham 5 Wolves 0

Fulham 5 Wolves 0

Things are looking very rosy in the Craven Cottage garden!

Three Premier League wins, on the bounce, have lifted Martin Jol`s side up to eighth position in the Premier League, season high, but more importantly the Cottagers are now playing with a style that suggests a bright future lies ahead for the club.

Having seen off Stoke and Queens Park Rangers in the previous two games, it was expected that Wolves, under the temporary managerial leadership of Terry Connor would put up a fair old fight.

As it turned out Wolves gave something akin to a toothless display as Fulham produced a five star display that rivaled that given in the 6-0 demolition of Queens Park Rangers.

Right from the off Fulham carved out several chances but didn`t take the lead until the 36th minute when Pavel Pogrebnyak made it three in three games with his first goal of the afternoon when the Russian los this market o head home a corner from Damien Duff.

From that moment on there was no looking back as Fulham put Wolves to the sword. A minute before half time, Pogrebnyak got his second of the game when he intercepted a poor pass from Stearman before laying off a ball to Andrew Johnson. AJ worked the ball well before providing a ball into the danger area that Pogrebnyak calmly slotted home.

Leading 2-0 at the break whilst also playing so well, you always fancied Fulham to score again and eleven minutes into the second half, the advantage was stretched to three goals when a defence splitting ball from Danny Murphy found Clint Demspey who calmly rounded Hennessey, in the Wolves goal, to shoot home.

Wolves were now in serious trouble of being swamped and five minutes later Pogrebnyak had his hat-trick. AJ tried his luck and when Hennessey could only parry the shot the Russian was on hand to grab his hat-trick goal and fifth since joining us in the January transfer window.

AJ almost got on the score sheet when his audacious shot clipped the bar, but it was left to Dempsey to wrap up the scoring for Fulham when he slotted home a defence splitting pass from the Fulham debut boy, Diarra.

All in all a decent afternoon`s entertainment and a 5-0 win was a decent enough excuse to go for a few beers, hence the lateness of this match report.

It was a very good win and it certainly helped the goal difference, a good result against villa and we will be breathing down Liverpool’s neck, I still haven’t warmed to Jol yet but we are starting to play some lovely stuff, let’s hope we can improve our away form now and build on the win at QPR

the thing i am impressed with is that fulham are winning the games against lower competition... as Jol said, these are an important 4 games for the team, and they need as many points as they can gather, and 9 out of 9 is a good start to the 4 game stretch... fulham've always been able to get up for a big game, but being professional with the promoted teams or those near the bottom has consistently been a problem... i'm very glad to see that has changes of late...
