Fulham aiming to end 11-year winless run in Wolverhampton Wanderers clash
Fulham will be aiming to end an 11-year wait for a Premier League victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers when the two sides meet on Friday.
Fulham will attempt to end an 11-year wait for a Premier League victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Craven Cottage on Friday evening.
Fulham have not looked back since winning promotion from the Championship last season, going on to pick up 38 points from their 24 Premier League games.
As a result of their impressive campaign, Fulham occupy sixth position in the Premier League table, leaving them four points adrift of the Champions League places.
While Marco Silva‘s side will be keen to extend their unbeaten run to six competitive games on Friday, they will also be looking to claim their first top flight victory over Wolves since securing a commanding 5-0 win in March 2012.
Fulham had to wait six years until they next faced Wolves in the Premier League, playing out a 1-1 draw in December 2018.
The three meetings that followed all ended in 1-0 defeats, before the two sides were involved in a goalless draw at Molineux when they met earlier this season.
Fulham have proven to be a resolute side in recent weeks, keeping clean sheets in their last three league games, drawing against Chelsea 0-0, before they beat Nottingham Forest and Brighton & Hove Albion without conceding.
They now have the chance to record four consecutive shutouts in the top flight for the first time since December 2001.
On that occasion, Fulham were involved in three goalless draws, while they also claimed a 2-0 victory over Everton.
A win on Friday would move Fulham level on points with fifth-place Newcastle United, who have a superior goal difference and have played a game less.
