Latest: Fulham 0 Wolves 0 – defences remain on top

The defences remained on top despite a more enterprising start to the second half from both sides at Craven Cottage.

With the half-time words of boss Kenny Jackett still ringing in their ears, Wolves made a fast start and had two good chances within two minutes of the restart.

A Lee Evans shot was pushed untidily round the post by Fulham keeper Marcus Bettinelli, and from the resultant corner, Bakary Sako screwed wide.

At the other end, Cauley Woodrow found space 25 yards out but after cutting inside his effort easily cleared the crossbar.

A minute later, Seko Fofana went closer with a shot from the edge of the area which was inches over.

On 65 minutes, Bettinelli was at full stretch to tip James Henry’s header over the bar as both teams looked to seize the initiative.

In the first half, Wolves missed a golden opportunity when Bakary Sako’s shot cannoned back off the post and Leon Clarke prodded the rebound wide of an open goal.

Woodrow fired over for Fulham, while Hugo Rodallega went close with an overhead kick that dropped on to the roof of the net.

Lasse Vigen Christensen, who was named in the starting line-up despite having only returned to training on Friday, lasted only 32 minutes before he limped off, replaced by Sean Kavanagh.
