16 Wolves 2 Saiss (9' ), Bonatini (26' ) Fulham 0

HT 2-0

First November win in 6 years (apart from winning League 1) as Bonatini hits 7 in 6.

Championship leaders Wolves opened up a four-point lead at the top as they comfortably disposed of Fulham.  First-half headers by Romain Saiss and Leo Bonatini, a 10th goal of the season for the Championship's top scorer, secured a fourth straight home win. Fulham were not without a threat, going closest through Kevin McDonald. But Wolves could have won by more at Molineux as Nuno Espirito Santo's men claimed an eighth clean sheet in 16 league games. Both goals were set up by Wolves' dead-ball specialist, left-back Barry Douglas. Saiss headed the first, on nine minutes, getting on the end of an inswinging Douglas corner. Relive how Wolves beat Fulham as it happened There might have been an immediate second goal, but Diogo Jota's low left-foot shot flashed across the face of goal. As it was, Fulham should have equalised, when home keeper John Ruddy flapped at an Oliver Norwood free-kick but, when the ball fell to Wolves old boy McDonald, he ballooned over the bar from close range. Instead, Wolves doubled their lead on 26 minutes when Douglas curled in another wickedly pacy left-foot free-kick from wide on the right - and Bonatini got his head on it to flick home his seventh goal in as many matches. Bonatini could have had more, sliding one wide, before being denied a headed second by a fine flying save from David Button, then bulleting another header over. Saiss and Jota could also both have scored on the break, but another quality home display will have shortened the odds even further on Wolves returning to the Premier League next May for the first time in six years.
