Fulham have not been in good attacking form of late. Their sum of goals stands at just 3 versus opposition teams over their last 6 outings. In those games, The Cottagers have also seen the number of goals that have gone against them come to 9. Despite that, we will just have to wait and see if that trend might continue on here in this match.

- have left without a victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous 3 league matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 3 league matches.

Team News: Fulham
Tom Cairney (Knee Injury), Alfie Mawson (Ruptured cruciate ligament) and Kevin McDonald (Kidney problems) will not be taking part for Fulham manager Scott Parker. Kevin McDonald will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Wolves
Thanks to a mainly healthy squad, there is just a single fitness issue for the Wolves gaffer Nuno Espírito Santo to be concerned about. Raúl Jiménez (Fractured Skull) won’t be in action.
Our assessment here is that Wolves will have to work hard as a team to register a score against this Fulham lineup who should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a good battle with a 1-0 winning margin for Fulham when the full-time whistle blows.
