With the 2020/2021 Premier league season almost coming to a close the race by the lower placed sides towards surviving the drop continues getting spicier with Fulham, West Bromwich Albions and sheffield all in the hunt for bagging Maximum points that could guarantee them safety.
Scott Parker’s Fulham will look to correct a poor display on their end that came in last weekend’s 3-1 away league defeat to Aston villa, this is when they will be playing Wolverhampton Wanderers in the leagues only fixture for the day, scheduled to kickoff at exactly 22:00pm.
The Wanderers pay a visit to the Cottagers who currently find themselves in a tricky situation as they are 18th in the log with only three points between them and safety having already played an extra game compared to 17th placed Newcastle United.
Wolverhampton Wanderers on the other hand who are greatly missing services from their main striker Raul jimenez after he suffered a head injury, will be on the lookout to change their fate given the poor run of form they are having in the league, Nuno Esperito’s men have not managed to record a single win since mid-February and are currently having their worst season since earning promotion back to top-flight football.
On taking a detailed assessment on their previous Clashes, we come to a conclusion of the two sides often looking to take a defensive approach when playing against each other, the tie apparently does not produce a lot in terms of goals, with the highest goal tally in this fixture not exceeding 2 goals in their last five encounters, which have in addition put together a total of four clean sheets from either side.
On the question about who has been the most dominant of the two in recent meetings, Fulham would surely be taking heed of turning the tables against Wolves who they have in the recent past showed inability to register a win from, their last coming in the 2018/2019 season where they would unfortunately be relegated to the Championship having just earned promotion back to the league in the same season.
Acknowledging Scott Parkers achievement as being the man who was at that time tasked with calming the Cottagers storm when they were sinking deep into relegation, achievements he would realize when he came in as the teams caretaker coach and later be appointed permanent Manager, he would in a difficult situation employ his tactical genius to earn the london outfit top flight status once again with just a single season being spent in the championship.
Surely everyone would be keen to see if the cottagers latest risky habit of moving back and from one league level to another continues, whether the team under their young Gaffer will manage to retain their Top-flight status?.
Fulham’s safety in the league remains a factor that can be mainly decided by the Players mentality and energy combined with the ability of the Coaching Staff to device new stratagems that would help them achieve league safety.
