Fulham v Wolves: Can Connor inspire Wolves to victory at the Cottage?


Bookmark and Share

Fulham v Wolves

Many eyebrows were raised when Wolves appointed Terry Connor as boss until the end of the season but if the men in Gold can show the sort of spirit that got them out of trouble at Newcastle last weekend then the decision could turn out to be a masterstroke.

When Wolves went two down early on at St James' Park I admit I feared the worse. This was a Wolves side, who were in the drop zone, away at a team fighting for a Champions League spot. However, Connor got to grips with his troops, got them focused and boy did they give Newcastle a run for their money in the end. That point was hugely significant. It was enough to lift Wolves out of immediate danger and if Connor can now stay out of the bottom three he will have achieved his goal. 

Standing in their way though this afternoon is a Fulham side who haven't given up on finishing seventh this season. The Cottagers have been in action since June but they are showing no sign of fatigue. If anything, they don't want the season to stop. They have won four of their last seven league outings and are just six points behind Liverpool in seventh.

Wolves ran out 2-0 winners over Fulham at the start of the season but they have not had the best of luck at Craven Cottage. It's been 13 years since they last won there and were denied a point last season from a last-gasp winner by Moussa Dembele.

The visitors would love to put some clear distance between themselves and the relegation battlers but it doesn't look as though it will happen here.
