Fulham vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers – English Premier League, April 9, 2021

Fulham is running out of time to escape the drop this season. There are just seven games left for the Cottagers now – with most of their rivals enjoying a game in hand.

Wolves have no real worries about relegation, but Nuno Espirito Santo will hope that his side can show a little more fight than it has in recent weeks this Friday.

It is a close-run thing, but BetOnline has some belief in Scott Parker and his Fulham players – at least for this game at home on Friday.

Wolves have been a shadow of their former self this season but might be able to take some heat from the two goals it scored to worry West Ham on Monday. The draw bet might be worth looking into.

Fulham vs. Wolves Match Preview

Fulham had an excellent chance to climb out of the bottom three for the first time in months last weekend – and even took the lead away from home at Aston Villa. But three unanswered goals for the home team towards the end of the game stole the points and made the Cottagers’ chances of staying up this season even more difficult.

That’s three defeats in the last four now for Fulham. The belief that had grown thanks to a string of promising draws the month before is now beginning to ebb away.

It feels like Scott Parker needs the Aleksandar Mitrovic, who scored five goals in three games for Serbia, to show himself again.

Nuno Espirito Santo could also do with some of his better players showing up on a more regular basis. But the Portuguese head coach will be somewhat happy with the way his side came back from three goals down against West Ham on Monday. The game still ended in defeat, but the goals suggested that there was at least some fight in the squad.

He will probably have to do without Willy Boly for this one, though. He is recovering after testing positive for COVID – and Raul Jimenez is also still a long-term absentee. It has been quite a while now, but Wolves has not been able to replace the Mexican’s goals this season – and the sooner he can get back on the pitch, the better.

Fulham vs. Wolves Betting Pick

    +196

I still find myself having some faith in Fulham’s chances of survival. But with every other club in the near vicinity having a game in hand on Scott Parker’s side, it needs to pick up some points very quickly.

This would seem to be a must-win for the home side, but I feel it will need to make do with just a point on Friday.
