Fulham vs Wolves by Isaiah
Brighton was more substantial than Fulham and took the victory with the score of 2-0. Fulham was considered favorite to win the match, but they hardly justified this by their performance. Apart from one or two good moments in the first half, they did not threaten Brighton. Brighton was better in the second half and opened the score with a penalty, while left midfielder Solly March scored the second one three minutes before full time to ensure the victory.
Coach Kit Symons stated that he is disappointed with the outcome of the game against Brighton anso also about his team image. At no point Fulham played according to their qualities and possibilities, they can find many excuses, but they should not not go into this process. There is something positive from the game to dwell on it, and as usual a reaction from the is expected to the field in the next game. Midfielder Lasse Vigen Christensen took a knock to the game against Brighton and he miss will today's game, while the absences of defenders Fernando Amorebieta and Tim Hoogland are permanent.
Wolves seemed to want the victory more than Brentford and fairly they won at home with the score of 2:1. Brentford started the match with a shot to the bar but Wolves scored the first one just in the 7th minute. Although the game gained a very good pace with goal action from both teams, only the second half produced more goals, with Wolves to score the second one thanks to an own goal and Brentford to reduce ten minutes before full time.
Coach Kenny Jackett was pleased with the performance of his players, but also troubled by the loss of two key offensive units in the near future, as Nouha Dicko and Bakary Sako will miss from Monday with their national teams. Jackett admitted that the gap is not easily replaced, but at least he will have them available for today's game against Fulham. Midfielder Kevin McDonald is suspended and will miss the game, while left back Scott Golbourne is unavailable due to injury.
Fulham needs a good result and a good reaction after their defeat away to Brighton. Wolves is not a team to trust with many up and downs to their performances, while they have a very mediocre presence the recent years in FA Cup. I think that the sorting of odds in favor of Wolves is wrong after just a win over Brentford and the value is with the home side.
