Wolves had a spring back in their step at Norwich City on Tuesday night and will now look to carry that into Friday’s televised clash with Fulham under the Molineux lights.
Willy Boly and Leo Bonatini secured three vital points at Carrow Road, which took Wolves back to the top of the Championship. That’s where they’ll be looking to stay and victory over the Cottagers will see them retain top spot for the upcoming international break. It was Wolves’ tenth victory of the campaign and, with an eight-match unbeaten run against Fulham under their belts, they’ll be looking for number 11 on Friday night.
Fulham go into the game winless in four matches and sat 16th in the Championship. Slavisa Jokanovic’s side fell to a 2-0 defeat at home to Bristol City on Tuesday night and had striker, Aboubakar Kamara shown a straight red card. That came after a 1-1 draw at home to Bolton Wanderers and a 2-1 reverse at Aston Villa. Fulham finished in the Championship Play-Offs last season and will be looking to spark a run of results together to fire themselves into contention.
