Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

The live SKY TV game on Friday night (19:45) should be an enjoyable one between two sides who like to play passing football. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Wolves made back top of the Championship table on Tuesday night as Sheffield United lost at QPR and they won 2-0 at Norwich. It was an impressive performance for the Black Country outfit who dominated the game and could have netted more than the goals from Willy Boly and Leo Bonatini (six in five league games). Fulham continued their tough start to the season as they suffered a 2-0 home loss to Bristol City in midweek. Their misery was also compounded when they had Aboubakar Kamara sent-off in the 63rd minute. Wanderers are unbeaten in their last eight head-to-heads with the Cottagers including taking four points off them last season. Floyd Ayite got a brace in their meeting at Molienux last season while Ivan Cavaleiro netted in both games.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Wolves are the favourites for this game but after watching them at Norwich on Tuesday night I don’t think enough has been made in the price as they are not just a good team they are a dominant team. They made a Norwich side who are higher than Fulham look ordinary and they should come out on top here. If you want more juice on the price then have a look at the Midlands side to be ahead at half-time and then again at full-time. This would have paid in three of their last five while the London side have conceded six of their last seven goals in the opening 45 minutes.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Victory for Wolves in midweek was their tenth for the season from 15 fixtures and means they are back of the top Championship table. This is their last game before the international break after which just one of their next nine is against a side in the top ten. At Molineux, they have been strong with five victories, one draw and one defeat with ten points from their last four in front of their own fans. Three of their last four at their own ground have gone over 2.5 goals and this is the same number of ties that have seen both teams find the back of the net. The Black Country outfit know where the back of the net is with the 27 they have netted the joint highest in the league while the 15 they have shipped has them in the top third for defences. Three of their last five matches have seen the Midlands outfit ahead at half-time and then again at full-time.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Carl Ikeme (hamstring) is continuing to recover from Leukemia while Phil Ofosu-Ayeh (hip) is out until January at the earliest.

Fulham Preview

It is now four without a victory and just two points from their last four fixtures for the Cottagers. Things do not get easier as this marks the first of three games against teams in the top five. Away from Craven Cottage, they have taken 11 of their 19 points this season with three victories, two draws and two defeats. The seven goals they have conceded means they have the joint best defensive road record in the Championship. Around 66% of the goals they have scored this season have come in the second-half and 39% in the final 15 minutes. Six of the last seven they have conceded have come in the opening 45 minutes.

Fulham Team News

Lucas Piazon (broken leg) and Sheyi Ojo (dislocated shoulder) are close to returns while Aboubakar Kamara will begin his suspension.
