Sky Sports pundit and former Nottingham Forest midfielder David Prutton has predicted that Wolves’ trip to Craven Cottage on Saturday in the Championship will end 2-2.
Nuno Santo’s side could only manage a draw last time out against Norwich City which led the ex-footballer to issue a warning against complacency to prevent the sides beneath from catching up.
Fulham are one of the league’s in-form sides and were scintillating last weekend as they ended Aston Villa’s seven-game winning streak but then could only follow that up with a 1-1 draw against Bristol City.
As quoted in his column in Sky Sports, Prutton said: “Wolves are still a good amount clear at the top of the league but that gap can close quickly if they keep letting results slip like they did against Norwich in midweek. The job’s not done yet.
“Fulham’s momentum has been ever-so-slightly halted by a couple of draws lately, but they’ll still be an extremely tough proposition for Wolves, who are yet to drop points in three games in a row this season. I fancy an entertaining draw.”
The pundit also expects Aleksandar Mitrovic to get his name on the scoring sheet for the second game on the bounce.
He reckons the Serbian will score the first in the game after finding the back of the net against the Robins midweek.
Currently, the West Midlands outfit have a nine-point advantage over Cardiff City who are leading the chasing pack.
There is a possibility that should Fulham get anything from the game, three matches without a win for Nuno Santo’s side will spell a miniature crisis.
And following the draw against the Canaries on Wednesday night, Wolves fans took to social media to show their displeasure at the performance of forward Benik Afobe and felt that the Bournemouth loanee wasn’t up to standard.
