Wolves winger Adama Traore finally broke his goalless streak with a stoppage-time winner against Fulham that saw them beat the London side 1-0 at Craven Cottage on Friday. The results sends the newly-promoted side closer to relegation from the Premier League. In injury time, Traore ran down the right side in trademark blistering fashion before slotting home to secure his side’s first victory since mid-February.

The fact that Adama Traore scored for the first time since December 2019 meant that it was an evening to remember for the Spanish international for two major reasons.

“I am so happy. We needed the points, it has been tough for us. I have been working hard through the weeks, trying to run in behind and mix the games up,” he said after the match.

“If I can help the team the best I can I will. I trust in my quality.”

Wolves striker Willian Jose had earlier been denied his first goal for the club. His header in the first-half injury time was ruled out for an offside by Daniel Podence following VAR intervention.

Fulham destined for drop?

Fulham have now lost their last four league games on the trot. Their most recent win an upset that was pulled off against champions Liverpool at Anfield on March 7.

That meant that the outlook was less positive for the home side. However, Fulham boss Scott Parker insists his team can still beat the drop.

“We find ourselves in this position where we are. But we’ve got a fighting chance because of what you see at the end of the game. We are a team and a group of players that are desperate,” he said.

“We will continue, painful, hurt but as always you get your guard up and you come out swinging. That’s what we’ll do.”

Fulham remain stuck at 18th place, three points behind Newcastle who have played two games fewer. Wolves are 12th and seemingly safe in the Premier League for another season.
