Fulham returned to London with a point following an eight goal thriller at Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Slaviša Jokanović made no changes to the side that demolished Reading at Craven Cottage last week.

Wolves opened the scoring midway through the first half on a wet Saturday afternoon when Helder Costa’s corner found the head of Kortney Hause.

Just after half an hour Fulham found themselves back in the game after Stefan Johansen smashed the ball in to the back of the net following an excellent low cross courtesy of Ryan Fredericks.

With half time looming the Whites managed to get themselves another goal after Johansen turned from goalscorer to provider when he crossed in towards the head of Floyd Ayité who nodded home with ease.

The visitors weren’t done there and found themselves with another goal. Another impecible assist from Johansen found Tom Cairney who’s magnificent volley will arguably be a contender for goal of the season.

Wolves got themselves back in to the game with less than half an hour to play when Matt Doherty headed home from close range and soon after found themselves level when Ivan Cavaleiro smashed his effort past David Button.

With the game looking as though both teams would be leaving Molineux with a point Dave Edwards smashed the ball past Button in the last minute of the game. However, the Whites commited to getting themselves an equaliser and did so in stoppage time through Floyd Ayité to the delight of the Fulham fans.

The home side will be struggling to work out how they hadn’t opened the scoring six minutes in to the game. Nouha Dicko whipped in a beautiful low cross in which Button couldn’t get to and Cavaleiro was open and ready to tap the ball in to the back of the net but somehow failed to do so.

The Whites immediately pegged back and almost had a goal of their own but Ayité’s shot from outside of the area took a wicked deflection which resulted in a corner.

The away side continued to push and came close yet again when the ball reached Fredericks who was approximately 35 yards from goal but that didn’t deter him as Harry Burgoyne could only watch as the attempt whispered past his post by inches.

Minutes later the home side grabbed the opener both sides were looking for. Wolves had themselves a corner which Costa whipped in superbly and Hause was there to head home past Button.

The London side weren’t content with leaving Wolverhampton empty handed and almost found themselves with an equaliser when Kevin McDonald played a short pass to Ayité but his shot was parried away by Burgoyne and Fredericks could only watch his attempt fly over the bar.

Fulham finally found the equaliser they were looking for just after the half hour mark after Fredericks provided a low cross in to the unmarked Johansen who hammered his effort in to the top corner of the net.

Ten minutes before the break Cavaleiro should have put the home side ahead and was unlucky not to. After the ball reached him in the six-yard box he appeared to slip when attempting to find the back of the net and could only watch the ball go high and wide.

Minutes later the away side responded and finally put themselves in to the lead after a wonderful cross from Johansen found the head of Ayité who nodded past the home goalkeeper with ease.

Just before the break and Fulham found themselves with a two goal cushion when Johansen provided his second assist of the game. This time his free-kick found an unmarked Cairney who’s right-footed volley landed perfectly in to the back of the net.

The home side arrived in the second half with a point to prove after having won only a single game at Molineux this season and came close to immediately getting back in the game after Matt Doherty’s header from close range was cleared off the line by McDonald.

With half an hour of the game left Fulham were close to getting a fourth after a lovely cross by Fredericks down the right hand side found its way to Cairney. The midfielder then hit first time but Burgoyne was there to pull off a fantastic save to deny him.

Moments later the Sir Jack Hayward stand erupted as Wolves got themselves back in to the game after Doherty managed hammer home Conor Coady’s lofted cross from the far right of the pitch.

With just under 20 minutes to play Wolves found the equaliser they had been pushing for after Cavaleiro’s blast of pace took him to just outside of the penalty area before he thundered home a shot that Button could do nothing about.

The home side continued to push for a winner and got extremely with less than ten minutes left on the clock when Costa’s superb cross found the head of Edwards who was unlucky not to hit the target.

With the game beginning to look like it might end in a draw Wolves attacked once more and found themselves in the lead for the second time today after the ball broke for Edwards at the back post, he fired his effort high in to the roof of the net from a tight angle.

Fulham refused to give up and continued to attack. Deep in to to stoppage time Ayité scored to the delight of the away fans and allowed the Whites to head back to London with a point.
