Wolves (2) 3-2 (1) Fulham


Midfielder Michal Zyro scored twice on his Wolves home debut to help Kenny Jackett's side to victory over Fulham at Molineux.

Zyro put Wolves ahead after latching on to Jordan Graham's cross, before doubling with a cool solo effort.

The visitors were back in it when Lasse Vigen Christensen easily headed home Jazz Richards' cross.

Matt Doherty extended Wolves' lead with a long-range goal but Ross McCormack's strike set up a tense finale.

The result means Wolves have now won four consecutive league matches and move up to 11th in the Championship table, while Fulham remain 19th.

The hosts broke the deadlock when Graham produced his eighth assist of the season to tee up Zyro, who joined Wolves from Polish side Legia Warsaw last month, to put the hosts ahead.

A superb home debut for Zyro continued as he made easy work of beating Fulham's offside trap to place the ball through Fulham goalkeeper Andy Lonergan's legs.

The away side worked their way back into the game when Richards sent a curling ball into the box and Christensen coolly nodded past Carl Ikeme.

Wolves then re-established their two-goal lead through Doherty's powerful shot from 35 yards after Graham's corner had been cleared.

And, although McCormack scored from 20 yards with just over 15 minutes to play, Wolves were able to hold on.

Wolves manager Kenny Jackett:
"It was a big win for us and full credit to the players as four Championship wins on the trot is not an easy thing to do.

"We wanted to put on a spirited and hard-working performances for our fans as there is some uncertainty around and I can feel it because of the sale of Benik (Afobe to Bournemouth).

"And I felt that the players answered it and responded in the right way and played with a lot of pride in playing for Wolves."

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic:
"I am trying to find the way for the team. We are not playing the same way that Fulham did before.

"We are a very good team with the ball but right now very soft without the ball.

"It is important for us to try and have more time with the ball in our possession to stop suffering so much and this is the plan that we have for the future.

"I cannot blame my players as they tried to follow the plan. At the end we lost the game but they did many, many positive things."
