Fulham 1 Wolves 3 - Report and pictures

Wolves made it three wins from three as they beat Fulham 3-1 at Craven Cottage.

Ivan Cavaleiro, on his first start since January, opened the scoring when he tapped home Helder Costa's pass just after the half hour mark.

Andreas Weimann doubled the lead shortly after half time and, although Fulham soon pulled one back through Denis Odoi, David Edwards secured the points after more superb work from Costa on the break.


No offence to the magnificent, historic, beautiful stadium that is Molineux, but can Wolves play the rest of the season away from home?

For the second time in five days they took on an attractive, attacking London team on their own turf - and deservedly beat them, writes Tim Spiers at Craven Cottage.

This time the margin of victory was greater, even if their dominance of the match wasn't, but Paul Lambert's fiercely committed team were good value for this most vital of three points.

Who saw this past week coming? Wolves were booed off last Saturday but three wins from three matches have pulled them up to an unlikely 16th position - five points ahead of the drop zone.

Last week it was clear that if they reproduced their Rotherham performance every week Wolves would be relegated.

Well, if Wolves are away from home they're a completely different animal.

For four successive away matches they've been the better team, unluckily losing to Reading, drawing when they should have won at Ipswich and now beating Brentford and Fulham.

Cavaleiro in a free role was inspired, but the performance of Costa topped that. His two magnificent assists were the difference here. Lambert suggested he'd take the shackles off and the boss, who came under severe criticism during his team's dire losing run, deserves credit for the game plan he implemented here, restricting space for Fulham and playing them like a fiddle on the counter.

The worry, though, is that six of Wolves' last night are at home. Should they transfer their away form to Molineux then survival won't be an issue.

Lambert went with the team that powered Wolves to victory in the second half at Brentford (bar Morgan Gibbs-White who came on for the final seconds) with Cavaleiro and Ben Marshall replacing Nouha Dicko and George Saville, who dropped to the bench.

The Wolves boss had called Fulham the best footballing side in the Championship. Well, in the first 45 minutes Wolves took them on - and were deservedly ahead at the break.

An open and attractive half of football saw the action flow from end to end, with both sides creating a number of chances.

Wolves attacked - and defended - in big numbers, expending plenty of energy but not letting play-off-chasing Fulham have a moment's peace.

That even included the home goalkeeper, with Wolves surrounding the Fulham box for goal kicks and forcing a number of errors from their defence.

Cavaleiro, playing in a free role, caused trouble from the off and excelled with the freedom that Lambert had on Friday suggested the Portguese man needed to get the best from him.

He almost slipped Costa - who picked up where he left off at Brentford - with an early through ball, before whistling a shot across goal and wide from a brisk counter involving Marshall and Weimann.

Marshall, who covered so much ground in protecting Doherty but also breaking forward, forced keeper David Button into a sprawling save from 18 yards, while Costa also fired a long-range effort down the keeper's throat.

Everyone in a lime green shirt was working hard, even flair player Costa - and his determination created the opening goal.

Costa harried Fredericks out of possession near the corner flag, shrugged off the full back and ambled into the box before playing to Cavaleiro who couldn't miss from six yards.

It was the least Wolves deserved. Yes Fulham created opportunities of their own - Kebano shooting just wide, Aluko firing at Ikeme from a dangerous position and Kevin McDonald almost doing the inevitable when he sent a free header wide - but Wolves had earned their lead.

They had also protected their goal well, with Evans and Edwards sitting deep to deny Fulham's marauding midfielders space, while Hause made a couple of vital blocks and interceptions.

Far from sitting back on their lead Wolves came racing out of the traps in the second half. Costa almost teed up Cavaleiro up for number two but his pass was intercepted in the nick of time.

However just a minute later Wolves doubled their advantage. Coady's ball reached Weimann and he emphatically beat the keeper to score his second goal in three games.

Fulham have been one of the form sides in the league of late and their response was a positive one. They pressed Wolves deeper back and, just seven minutes after Weimann's strike, they pulled one back when Odoi boomed one in from range.

With the hosts seeing so much of the ball Lambert took off a tiring Cavaleiro - his work done - for Dicko, to defend from the front and try and get a third.

And then, with the midfield battle being lost, on came Romain Saiss to do some smothering and shore things up with 23 minutes to go, Marshall the man to depart.

It was now one-way traffic, albeit with Wolves adequately protecting Carl Ikeme with a wall of green shirts as the hosts sprayed it around looking for an opening.

But they didn't account for the magic of Costa. The wing wizard raced down the right, got to the byline and crossed for Edwards who tapped home in front of goal.

It sparked wild scenes in front of Wolves' 2,300 travelling fans.

The remaining 18 minutes were a breeze, with Ikeme barely tested. What a week it's been.

Key moments

35 - GOAL - Costa wins the ball back and plays across goal for Cavaleiro who taps in from six yards

48 - GOAL - Coady crosses low from the right, Weimann picks it up and sends a great finish into the corner from the edge of the box.

55 - GOAL - Batth scuffs a clearance and the ball is eventually picked up by Odoi who sends a bouncing 25-yarder into the corner.

72 - GOAL - Wolves hit Fulham on the break and it's 3-1. Wonderful work from Costa who makes it to the byline and plays to Edwards who finishes from two yards.

Here'here well if this don't make his glass half full nothing will!! Shhhhhh Karlis dont say a word !!


Karlisatwonk said it would be a waste of money, two trips down south in one week, it's been far better spent travelling away than travelling to Moanlineux thanks to mouth breathers like him.

Hopefully Lambert will keep us on track and gets to build his squad, those that don't like him will fizzle off (until we start pushing at the top end) I can only pray!

Thank heavens I don't have to do the driving back to Bridgend because my right peg is buggered from the driving and jumping like a loon thanks to all the goals gone in this week.


Come on guys, 1draw and 3. straight wins must be tipping him over the edge!!!!!?

Come out, come out Karlis where ever you are????



you're only an hour and 23 minutes late with your post DOH !!!!!


Brilliant! Well done lads! Keep it up! Bit of a gap to the next position up but would feel safe at 55 points.


Great result!

Well done Lambert, Players and as always, the 2,000+ travelling fans.

A good week!


What a turn around!!! Well Done Wolves!! Well done Paul Lambert!!

Turned things right around now when it mattered, they all deserve full credit for these results. PL was given a lot of stick and he fully deserves praise now so I hope the fans give it them all.

I really don't think we will go down now, if only we hadn't gifted Brum those points this season they would be right in trouble.

Looks like a fight for 22 place, 5 pts clear but may as well be 6pts with the goal difference. What a collapse by Burton!

50 pts should be enough this season to be safe.... 9 games to get 5 points... easy!!! :)

Well done wolves!

Bruce, Arouca, Trinidad

Yes Tim what a pity we can't play all our games away. Our survival in this division was always dependent on away form. Now only three away games left; so we probably need to pick up a few points at Molineux. Perhaps these last two wins will inspire some more confidence for Molineux games.


Another win on the road, on the way to safety, don't stop now lads.

Can we play the rest of our games away from the Moanlineux please?

Pretty please?

Not Convinced

the stats say fulham had 70% possession but the only stats that matter are that

wolves scored 3 goals ;

weimann is beginning to look the part along with our 2 portuguese friends of course ;

we get the 3 points ;

burton albion lost at home ;

2,300 wolves fans were rewarded for their loyalty

(nb not a good week for the jack price fan club but a great week for the club)


Not convinced its just a reverse of our fate last few games, your so right goals are what win it


Ask Jeff Shi how many people are watching the games in China and if they are making a profit yet in that part of their revenue stream.


Well done Wolves, surprised most of the 'negativity' pundits around.

Who was it that said we would not get anything from the next two games.

I will not name names because I am sure others know who I mean.

Keep them positive vibes going.....

Nice to see some strong action in the game that breaks play down.

But beware of getting sent off....... Hard play but fair Mr Lambert


Well done lads, good win. Also well done to Lambert for sending the same team out and how he set them up.

chris h

Brilliant win. Dave Edwards 10 goals from midfield, drop him say some on here, Danny Batth back in the middle: only one goal conceded away from home against two very decent Championship, not bad for a donkey, eh. Weimann delivering two goals in two games in the striker position. Pure class from Coasta and Cavaliero, Mendes ain't so bad after all. Team working hard for the manager.Sack him, last Saturday, give him another go last Tuesday night, build him a statue outside the South Bank tonight. Even I think we will stay up now.

It is only Rock n Roll, but I like it.


agree chris h and those moaners moaning about weimann and marshall am they moaning NOW

Not Convinced

binthere - I admit I moaned about jack price but the last 2 matches there was nothing to moan about , has lambert finally seen the light ?


not convinced totally agree with ya


And check out our results when Evans has played.

Black Country Wanderer

Yes Chris that goal for Edwards will cement his place for another 20 games lol

Nothing at all against him if he does his job,problem is its 2/3 decent games then back to anonymity,i really hope he carries on and scores a few more this season, if he plays like he has in the last 2 games,we will see

Lets just hope PL goes for it at home and not revert to 6 midfielders again,Costa and Cav different class,Marshall and Wiemann looking like decent players too,im not mixing the concrete yet for a statue, but things are a darn sight better than last week for sure

chris h

BCW, Two wonderful and very very important wins this week, who would have thought it on leaving Molineux last Saturday. After the pain, let's suck in all the good vibes.


chris h,

It was Danny Batth's poor attempt at a clearance that led to Fulham scoring their goal other than that lapse an excellent team performance.


Still picking up on the negatives I see..then a later attempt at redemption lol


I will call you Sir Peter this evening Old Chap, top post and you told us all!!!!


Come on chris, you know that you're "Too old to rock and roll" but "Too young to die" ( Jethro Tull-1974). Been away for a while, or I would have posted earlier.


We've now got to do it at the mol !!!

Benny Hill's dad

Like the man said, transfer that into home form. We have to get behind them at Molineux

Sir Lupi

In Lambert I trust.

Stay away boo boys, you know nothing about football and you embarrass the club.

A team that plays better away than at home tells you a lot about the support of some Wolves fans and their unwelcome attitude towards players, management and staff.

Shame on you, as this has been going on for a long time now.

Stay away u septic divs as you are ruining it for everybody else.


Totally agree Sir Lupi! Paul lambert is a very good manager and will do well for the wolves. Every team goes through a bad spell but the negative reaction shown by some 'fans' has been ridiculous. We will lose a few games between now and the end of season, but I still think we will finish in the top half of the table.


Sir Lupi - I certainly don't agree with booing my own team but I can well understand why people might have been so frustrated and disappointed that they would show their feelings in that way. Many of the home performances (as well as some away games I've witnessed) over the last couple of seasons have been drab and dreary. When the team has played well, even when we've lost, the fans have shown their appreciation in a positive way. What ruins the day for me is not fans booing but the team playing badly.


Next season has already started. These last four games earn us no points for next season but are a statement of intent.

Now we must build, maintain and implement a promotion push.

It all started at Portman Road.

Now drive on Fosun

Black Country Wanderer

Out of Darkness and all that

What a difference a week makes,after the dross of last Saturday to a pretty much perfect performance today

Full credit to PL he chose to go for it, and how it paid off

Costa back to his best,he seems a different player with Cav around,Cav himself proving he should nail this number 10 role down now,and everyone doing their job for once,great

As TS says, the problem is we have 6 from 8 at home now,a problem most teams would love to have,but we are dreading it

The home form has to get better,and these last couple of games will have helped settle things down a bit,i hope

Lets just hope PL keeps going for it at home now,2 more wins will be enough for sure


Well done Wolves.Two more wins shouldsee us safe.


Brilliant we should be safe now,shame about international break.


Sue, it is the international break for everyone, so it is down to PL and his staff to make sure we prepare to come out of it professionally and ready to continue where we left off. If we don't, then it is poor management.

Olly the cat

For once, Sue, I think the International break is a good thing. Wolves have some breathing space ahead of their relegation rivals, and it is their turn to worry about their form for the next two weeks. Wolves have had a hectic schedule recently due to our exploits in the FA Cup, and this two week break will give the squad the opportunity to recover from any little knocks and strains before what looks like a very demanding run of games in April. It will give everybody at the club, including the fans, a well earned rest from the very demanding public scrutiny.


You are probably right.


Deadly Dave strikes again eh. Can't understand it - he's useless according to the majority of punters on here only scored ten this season. So are Batth, Evans and a few others. Humble pie for Saturday tea. Freeking brilliant result. It indicates what this squad and this manager are capable of. Two or three quality signings in the summer and we should be a force next season.


That one was for all the nuggets on here.... Karlis where are you...

I think if we are going to be successful some of the Wolves supporters need to develop a little backbone and no small amount of patience. I know the road has been a long one but you have to give the current incumbents a chance before we become so dismissive.

10 from 12 now and two home games to come.


"10 from 12 now and two home games to come".

That's whats got me worried!!


Marmite Lambert does it again. Superb result yet again. Now, I only ask PL and the players to do it at Molineaux.

The critics ( ive been one too) have to applaud PL and the players

Farmer Ted



Farmer Ted,I don't know whether you read my post yesterday but your best m8 Cradley passed away on Wednesday I heard the news yesterday that he'd had a stroke.


I know we have had differences but that is sad news pass my condolences on to his family R.I.P


Condolences to Cradleys family. How sad when only a couple of weeks ago he was celebrating his daughters wedding. RIP

Jack the Hat.

Condolences to Cradley's family and friends.

Banter is banter but times like these we are one football family.

________________________ J♣H.


We didn't always agree Cradley. I am shocked by the sad news.

My condolences to his family.

Ignore the hypocrite and his sarcasm.


Heaven forbid..




You're Sick !!!

Steve Mardenborough's Shoulder

Like I've been saying we always play rubbish in that lime green kit. Oh hold on a minute...


Stating the obvious ! If we had won the previous 6 games we would have been in the play off zone, 63pts and singing, makes you see how fickle this league is, so cheer up well done lads, get as high as possible UTW

Black Country Wanderer

If we had won the previous 36 we would be in the Prem now lol,and right where we are will do for me now


It would help if Tim understood what was going on . Karlis will offer you a little football analysis for free . We lost against Newcastle Wigan and almost Rotherham because they came to defend with 10 men behind the ball . We set up defensively which was an error . At Liverpool Stoke Brentford Dulham they thought we were easy meat and we destroyed them on the break but also because Cav is back and we have missed Mason since the Cilla game . Best wishes - easy really


Please no talk about the playoffs, that would really annoy me. Well played had to start winning some time after the majority of performances have been decent.

Sir Lupi

Playoffs here we come!

Sidcup wolf

Great result Fulham have been in good form, we just need to put in a performance like this at home now.


Lambert haters have even less to say today.


KARLIS ....conspicuous by your absence I see...lost for words are we too embarrassed to say anything come on pal as I have said many times keep the faith we will come through...I have watched Wolves for 67 years now and have seen it all ..but hey we are still here come what may and still with half full glasses ..forever the optimist that's me please follow suit !!!!


All the Cradley knockers on here i'd ask you to show a little respect as I heard yesterday that he has passed on from a stroke.

Suicidal Wolf

Can't we change the name of Molineux to Moliaway?

Terry King

What a business model, the customers a week ago calling for the Manager to be sacked and today nowhere to be seen.I hope they are hiding, and remain so until mid May. Well done the team and manager.

Sigmund Fried

Well done to players and fans. Heard several Fulham fans praise performance and support. Hope we can play like this at the Mol.

Old Wulfrunian

Excellent result. Well done lads.


Get in there. Keep this up and safety is not far away


Lets get real folks, it was a great win today but we are only 16th in the league and we are still not safe. I believe if Lambert had not tinkered with the team so much we would be higher in the league. Now he is selecting a more settled team putting players in their correct positions we are having better results and I hope it continues.

Farmer Ted

You wouldn't understand why he's had to change the bloody team...would you? No of course not!

re YOUR POST Molineux !


You comment FT as if we were in the play offs I am just speaking the truth, we are 16th in the league, and we are still not safe. You change with the wind I remember you saying last week that you were not happy with Lambert. All talk about the playoffs earlier on from most people and now they are celebrating. I am not eating humble pie, I am saying that we should not be in this position. That is my opinion. I will not respond to you again because I do not like you or your comments.


come on you two play nicely or I'll take your balls away !!

Farmer Ted

Gotcha...You couldn't resist it could you!

For the record I criticised Paul Lambert for the Rotherham tactics...that's all. You've been eating humble pie ever since I showed you up the last time, when you said you wouldn't respond to me?

Who mentioned play offs? What goes on in your brain when you're wandering around your planet?

Come on Malta, where are you...let's discuss FFP.

Farmer Ted

PS. You said you'd been watching Wolves a lot longer than me. Wiliams v Ditchburn ...worked it out yet?



Farmer Ted,

I'll help him out old chap

Wolves V Spurs Score 0 - 0

Year 1952.


Another great win and plenty of shot towards the oppositions goals that's another good static come the wolves keep showing your teeth. Well done lads


Well, been in London most of this week and seen two attacking and very hard working displays. Simple really - if we sit back and play negatively, we struggle. Cavaleiro back with a bang. Three more wins now and all of us can relax. Well done the lads. UTW


we are the kings of west london- first brentford and now fulham

defended really well as a team with the likes of costa tracking back.

that was the key to the win.

fulham on top with Kmac in first half but couldnt break us down.

we got the goal on the counter and never looked back.

in Cavaleiro and Costa we have 2 of the best wingers in this league and they win us games.

fulham couldnt cope with the two of them.

weimans goal was a peach and edwards helped ease our worrries.

Fantastic support, totally outchanted the home fans as we did last year too when we won 3-0 i think.

If lambert can add a quality goalscorer and a creative midfielder in the summer we could do really weel


Bellyachers, As I stated, we will comfortably stay up. Sack the manager indeed???


This morning whilst watching the Baggies do a number on Arsenal (congrats), I would have taken a Wolves draw from an in form Fulham there and then. but all three is fantastic, most welcome.

Congrats to the lads. A great win.



Oh ! Still can't get used to that bloody awful lime green strip. We are not Canaries!!.

Gold all the way please.


Steve Mardenborough's Shoulder

Me neither. Loved the all white and the all black was class. It makes it look like we are playing with 10 goalies.


You're right. Gold or Black or both. But not that lime canary green.


Lost our grandad suddenly today, lifelong wolves fan whose seen it all from championships to near extinction, that one was for him today. Made a very hard day that little bit easier, thank you boys keep it going.


Sorry for your loss.



Sincere condolences in your sad loss.

Ignore the insincere hypocrite.

Stearmans overhead kick

Well done Wolves, And Paul Lambert, Have a wee dram tonight while I have to scoff humble pie twice in a week fella. Don't care if I get the size of Billy Bunter. Just keep on winning Wolves.

Old Wulfrunian

Stearman - you give your age away. Bully Bunter, played by Gerald Campion and whose archenemy schoolteacher was Mr Quelch, had his own TV series in the 1950s at around the same time we ruled English football. For reasons I never established, my late mum always referred to Billy Wright as 'Bunter'. It's only 19.32 over here on holiday in N Carolina and I'll be having a few celebratory drinks tonight.


Hi, OW, where in NC? Lived there for 10 years until last year. Hope you're having a great time. It's a nice place.


Old Wulfrunian

Near to Harrisburg, east of Charlotte. Been here many times over the years, initially on business but now purely for leisure. The match finished at 13.45 EST over here which gave me plenty of time to celebrate - I certainly slept well last night!!

Stearmans overhead kick

Old Wulfrunian. What a good memory you have. Yes m8. I am old now but I could not remember some of the facts you have told me. O.K, I could have looked it up on the internet but somehow that spoils it all for me. Billy Bunter what a character, A tubby school kid with glasses and chequered trousers who would always find himself in trouble with his fellow pupils,Classic comedy I do remember watching the t.v series, Your late mum used to refer To Billy Wright as Billy Bunter ? l.ol Sounds like she had a great sense of humour.My late dad and me had loads of banter over John Richards you know. He said he was pigeon toed and knock kneed, He was a massive Billy Wright fan. He used to eat humble pie more than me now in the 70's m8 I can tell you. Sounds like you have enjoyed your drink last night. Is it true what the song says Nothing could be finer than Northern Carolina in the morning apart from three points for the Wolves and hangover of course. Nice chatting fella.

Bedford Wolf

The key to this was in finally dropping Saville thus allowing Edwards to play deeper alongside Evans where his attributes of non-stop running and boundless energy are effective and playing a creative player in the number 10 role behind the striker. Simple really. If we'd done that at Reading and Ipswich we'd now have five straight wins.

Great day out and just shows how possession stats are meaningless as despite only having 30% possession we were far better than play-off chasing Fulham.

Not Convinced

bedford - no , against ipswich and reading saville filled in at left back

the midfield v ipswich was price , saisse , edwards

the midfield v reading was coady , saisse , edwards

so sorry you cannot blame saville for midfield performances v reading and ipswich since he was not playing in midfield .

Bedford Wolf

You have completely missed the point old lad - it's not about the individuals but the system. A 433 without any creativity or flair where Edwards is expected to be something he is not does not work as he is not a number 10. Playing 4231 with Edwards deeper and a real number 10 does work. It took dropping Saville to make that happen.

Oh and as I was at Reading and Ipswich I know who played.

Jack the Hat.

Good job Lambert copied the Tony Pulis blue print.

The Fulham St Johns Ambulance Service was thrown into red alert owing to a gush of nose bleeds in the away end.

There was once a Baggie called Jack,

From Sandwell, he gave us some Flak,

But we really don't care,

Cos we all know that Jack just talks c*ck!


Well said Olly. Poet Laureate in the making.....

My pleasure Shewolf. From now on I will be known as the bard of Blakenhall!



nose bleeds..no worse than the blood coming from your gums after you chewed 3 toffees at the same time

one has to laugh

wanderer in eire

Are you watching or hiding KARLISS?

wanderer in eire

I hope your hiding and won't be coming out of your hole for a while yet!

wanderer in eire

PL needs time and he deserves to be given time and a further few players of his choice for next season.

The Flying Winger

What a result and effort by all the players, can't defend , can't score goals, well what happened to that then.

After the Rotherham game we could have slipped much further but from somewhere Lambert has managed to find a formula that has worked and the players have responded, two excellent wins.

His two signing have made a huge difference, I was not sure about Wiemann but he is a cool guy and has an eye for goal excellent positioning sense, Marshall is a fine player and has added so much.

The break will also allow Cav to continue is fitness and hopefully Mason should be back a player we have really missed.

Batth is now playing as we know he can.

We still have the game in hand and are much better placed but still a long way to go, many results went for us yesterday, Lambet and the players need to find some consistency put some good displays on athe the Mol, the fans have such an important part to play and this booing and poor support has to stop, please.


What's the real deal.....Is Lambert any good or not?? Against Liverpool i thought we were watching a champions league Wolves against Rotherham a Sunday League Wolves. Now this week 9 points on total. Happy but confused! UTW

Chris Groves

I didn't doubt all through the losing run but after the Rotherham win I did actually doubt if PL as the ri manager. 7 days on and after making 2 tough away trips to West London look easy those doubts have been blown away. Its been a very unique season in many ways. There are definite signs that with a bit of fine tuning where we want to be is close.

Realistic Wolf

Great week so well done to all. Not a PL fan at all given his previous strange team selections and performances. However if at long last he has seen the light and realised we do actually have some quality players and actually picks them well that will do for now. A bit more possession would be nice though. Now show us what we can do at home and I sure we will all be happy. Just wish people would not make sarcastic remarks about other contributors as we all have an opinion and only want the best for wolves.


Here, Here - great comment.

The point of this forum is to be able to discuss and express opinions - we should not have to put up with others being sarcastic simply because their opinion is different, we should all want whats best for the Wolves.

Farmer Ted

Hear hear


Terry King

Cant read this forum and see Farmer Ted, without thinking of Ted Farmer, greatest centre forward we ever had. The coal miners son who was ahead of the Doog and Steve Bull in goals per game, if only we had that sort of player now, local, tough, successful centre forward then perhaps the Forum would have more happy bunnies. Once PL started to get the effort levl up the results came.


Fans need to respect others opinions. We watch the same game but see it differently. Doesn't mean one is right or one is wrong. Notice three of our regular hard hitting contributors aren't having a say on yesterday's result. Proud of our lads, and well done PL for not tinkering.
