World News – US – Wolves return to victory as Pedro Neto’s goal sinks Fulham


The striker’s goal earned the hosts a 1-0 victory as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side rediscovered their form

Alphonse Areola’s double save turned off Neto and Nelson Semedo, while Aboubakar Kamara missed a glorious chance to level for visitors

This meant Fulham slipped to a fourth straight loss to stay at the bottom of the Premier League

Despite a tireless display, it was a comeback for Scott Parker’s side, who conceded 11 goals – the most they’ve achieved in their first four league games since 1960

Wolves, mistreated by their recent loss of form, were hesitant but still had too much for Fulham to end a three-game losing streak

The Cottagers were more precise than their hosts in the first 20 minutes, but the Wolves slowly started to take control

Yet lacking confidence after their losing streak, including a 1-0 Carabao Cup outing at Stoke, the hosts’ usual zip was missing

It didn’t help that Nuno opted for Romain Saiss’ conservative choice out of the left-back position, with Ruben Vinagre close to a move to Olympiacos and a deal for the left-back d’Angers Rayan Ait-Nouri not yet finished

They needed Tim Ream to give them a chance after 27 minutes, but were denied Areola’s shine

Neto intercepted the defender’s sloppy pass and his low strike was parried by Areola, who was quickly ready to deny Semedo at close range

It was a rare chance in a combative but forgettable half time and Wolves have failed to score in the first half in 19 of their last 25 top flight games

Ruben Neves shot wide shortly after the break before Areola came to Fulham’s rescue again after 55 minutes

Max Kilman’s hopeful long ball sent Raul Jimenez through and he was thwarted by Areola’s legs with the goalkeeper claiming Leander Dendoncker follow-up

The reprieve did not last long as Areola was finally beaten a minute later when Neto scored his first goal of the season

Dendoncker’s shot was blocked by Robinson, and as Fulham failed to clear the ball, the ball ricocheted at Neto, who broke through the bottom 16-yard corner

It was a reward for an energetic opening at half-time, but the Cottagers should have equalized after Ademola Lookman brilliantly worked the ball in Aleksandar Mitrovic

The striker made a selfless square to Kamara, unmarked from eight meters, but he could only skate straight on Patricio

That summed up Fulham’s afternoon and Neeskens Kebano broke through with a minute to go as the Cottagers faced another loss
