Wolves v Fulham Reserves 0-2

The Wolves Reserves lost with 2-0 to Fulham at Molineux tonight. Although Wolves was clearly the team that created most chances in the match they did not succeed to put the ball in the guests net.

With a team consisting of many players with Premier League experience a better result was expected. Wolves impotence in front of goal is a problem in the Premier League team as well as in the Reserves.

The first half was goalless with chances from Kightly firing over after a pass from Maierhofer in the 6th minute and Hoff had a shot wide after about 10 minutes and closely afer that he had a header that was saved by the Fulham keeper.

A Keogh shot is blocked by the keeper after 20 minutes and he had a low drive that was saved by keeper Stockdale after half an hour. Shortly after that Rooney found Kightly who crossed in to Maierhofer who headed wide.

Two minutes later Keogh launched a pass to the Hoff, but Stockdale somehow saved it. The best Wolves chance so far. After 40 minutes Keogh is free with Stockdale but it’s an offside. In the last minute Milijas takes a free-kick from 30 yards out that Stockdale tips around the post with some difficulty.

The second half chances for Wolves were a little fewer. Foley almost found Keogh in front of goal with a cross in the 50th minute.

After an hour Fulham scores their first goal when Hahnemann parries a shot from Hoesen but it drops to Johnson who scores. Just a minute later Milijas plays in Keogh perfectly, but Stockdale comes out quickly and Keogh fires over. Keogh and Kightly created chances later on but without luck.

After 84 minutes Dunleavy, substitute for Ward after an hour, tried to intercept a ball from a Fulham forward but was unlucky to kick it into own net and it was 2-0 to Fulham.

Paddy will now spend the rest of the evening eating his cap, as promised if Wolves would lose this game. Although it seems like Wolves had the main part of play and created more chances then the young, inexperienced Fulham team, they should have won a match like this easily with the strong team at hand.

WOLVES: Hahnemann, Foley, Mancienne, Elokobi, Hill, Kightly, Milijaš, Rooney, Ward (Dunleavy 63), Keogh, Maierhofer.

FULHAM: Stockdale, Pritchard, Anderson, Briggs, Kallo, Moscatiello, Uwezu, Riise, Johnson (Trotta 74), Hoesen (Harris 88), Smith.
