Adama Traore’s strike sinks Fulham deeper into relegation

0

Adama Traore struck a goal deep into added-time to fire Wolves to victory and sink Fulham deeper into the relegation mire.

Fulham thought they had done enough to earn what would have been a precious point only for Traore to break their hearts in the second minute of stoppage-time with a powerful shot which beat Alphonse Areola at his near post. It was his first Premier League goal in 16 months.

It was just deserved for Wolves as despite a below par performance they ought to have already been ahead.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side thought they had edged in front on the stroke of half-time when Willian Jose headed in what would have been his first goal for the club only for VAR to intervene and rule it out for a very marginal offside call.

It looked to be a real let off for Fulham, who, save for a Ruben Loftus-Cheek header in the first half, offered next to nothing in attack.

With a victory enough to lift the Cottagers out of the bottom three, Parker’s decision to leave it until the 75th-minute to make an attacking switch will have raised eyebrows.

The introduction of Josh Maja provided a slight improvement, although Fulham still failed to test Rui Patricio in between the Wolves goal.

And with the hosts throwing caution to the wind late on, they were caught short on the counter-attack, with Traore’s shot proving decisive.
