Scott Parker will know at the end of this next match, whether Fulham’s season is back on track, having lost their last fixture and drawn against Crystal Palace before that.

Fulham seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with 10 draws in 16 games. Their position is eighteenth in the League, and they have 26 points having won five matches, drawn 11 fixtures, and lost 14 matches.

Fulham have won two games, drawn four matches, and lost eight fixtures of their 14 League matches at home this season.

A victory for Fulham would put them on 29 points.

Fulham may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

It’s 35 points so far for Wolverhampton Wanderers this season, going into this game

Wolves have dropped all six points in their last two games, a disappointing run of form, which Nuno Espirito Santo will be keen to turn around in this fixture.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves have lost 10 of their last 20 matches this season. They currently stand fourteenth in the League, with 35 points having won nine matches, drawn eight meetings, and lost 13 fixtures.

Wolves’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Fulham. In the 15 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won four meetings, drawn four matches, and lost seven matches.

Victory for Wolverhampton Wanderers would take their points tally to 38 so far this season.

It is likely that four key players will miss Friday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Nuno Espirito Santo and his Wolves team.
