Fulham v Wolves - Pre-Match Fascinating Facts

Fulham v Wolves - Pre-Match Fascinating Facts

The Football League fixture computer works in mysterious ways, something proven by the fact that our visitors to Craven Cottage, this Saturday, will be making their second trip to West London in a matter of days.

In midweek Wolves eased their problems by winning at Brentford, on Saturday Fulham will be doing their utmost to prevent Wolves making it two wins in successive matches in West London.

Ahead of the clash we`ve taken the opportunity to delve into the record and form books to uncover a few interesting facts.

1 - Wolves have the upper hand when it comes to the results of the last 5 meetings in the league having won 4 and drawn 1.

2 - Although Wolves have not lost any of the last 5 league meetings between the two sides, we should point out that Fulham have scored a total of 6 goals in the last 2 meetings.

3 - Wolves, having won consecutive league games at Craven Cottage, will be looking to extend that run to 3 wins, something they`ve not achieved since December 1962.

4 - Don`t be too fazed if Fulham fall behind, the Cottagers have won 22 points from losing positions, the most of any Championship side this season.

5 - Fulham have, according to the statistics, attempted more shots than any other Championship side this season, 585 in total, exceeding their nearest rivals by a 30 shots.

6 - Fulham enter this fixture on a run of 8 unbeaten Championship fixtures with the Cottagers having won 5 and drawn 3. Only Ipswich Town can match this current unbeaten run.

7 - The danger-man in the Wolves side is Helder Costa, the player has scored 9 times this season with 7 of those coming away from home.
