Wolves 2 Fulham 0

Wolves 2 Fulham 0

Fulham slipped to defeat, at Moulineux, against a Wolves side that extended their lead at the top of the Championship table.

The defeat sees Fulham`s own promotion aspirations dealt another huge blow with the Cottagers slipping to 16th in the table, well adrift of the promotion places and six points adrift of the play-off places.

Having gone the whole month of October without winning, Fulham have started November in a similar vein.

Although Wolves were undoubtedly the better side last night, Fulham did have some decent possession and worked the ball well, but they lacked that cutting edge needed up front.

Wolves, to their credit, played well, pressurising Fulham high up the pitch and not allowing anybody time on the ball.

Both the goals came in the first half and both came from set-pieces expertly taken by the Wolves player, Barry Douglas.

The first, in the ninth minute, came from a corner which Douglas delivered with accuracy for Romain Saiss to leave David Button with no chance of keeping out a powerful header.

The second came in the twenty-sixth minute when Ryan Sessegnon had been penalised for a foul, Douglas, once again, took the set-piece and his precise delivery was glanced home by Leo Bonatini.

In between the two Wolves goals, Fulham had a great opportunity to equalise when the Wolves keeper, John Ruddy, fumbled a cross but Kevin McDonald, against his old team, couldn`t get enough direction on the ball to steer it home and the golden opportunity was missed.

Wolves had further opportunities to extend their lead, Bonatini saw an effort go wide and then saw Button prevent another goal with an acrobatic save.

For Wolves the future looks golden, for Fulham there`s a lot of hard work to do before Slavisa Jokanovic can turn the ship around.
