Fulham desperate to find winning formula at Wolves as relegation fears begin to mount again

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Fulham @ Molineux

February 24, 2015 @ 7.45pm

Fulham will look to end a five-game league winless run when they travel to play-off hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers tonight.

The Cottagers have collected just two points from a possible 15 to leave Kit Symons’ side in 19th – just five points above the bottom three.

One of those points came on Saturday as they managed a goalless draw against fellow strugglers Millwall at The Den – their first away point in five games.

The trip to the West Midlands may come too soon for Fernando Amorebieta, but Tim Hoogland is close to a first-team return after featuring for the U21s since recovering from a hernia problem.

Costa Rican forward Bryan Ruiz could also return to the starting line-up having appeared as a second-half substitute on Saturday – his second appearance since a January loan move to Spanish club Levante fell through.

Wolves are eighth in the Championship, just five points adrift of the top six after Saturday’s 5-0 win over Rotherham.

Manager Kenny Jackett is expected to name the same squad from the weekend, while Jack Price is available after illness.

These two sides have met three times already this season, with Wolves winning the reverse 1-0 in the league before Fulham won an FA Cup third-round tie replay on penalties on their last visit to Molineux last month.

The Cottagers’ last non-penalty victory in the Black Country was 30 years ago and they haven’t won any of their last five away games, losing four.

Referee: Graham Salisbury

Star Man: Ross McCormack – The £11m man has found the net five times in six league matches.

Danger Man: Nouha Dicko – The Mali international tops Wolves’ scoring charts with nine league goals.

Last time they met: Wolves 3 Fulham 3 (Fulham won 5-3 on penalties), FA Cup third round replay, January 13, 2015
