    Time:90'
    • Fulham
    • Wolverhampton Wanderers
    • 90+4' PEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!! That's it and what a game. Wolves took a deserved lead and when Fulham lost Zamora to injury the game look beyond but their picked themselves up and recorded a stunning win thanks to Dembele's brace.
    • 90+4' Fulham look to play out time....Schwarzer has it in his area....wide to Hangeland...
    • 90+3' CAUTION: BREDE HANGELAND of Fulham for a crunching tackle on Fletcher.
    • 90+2' Surely Wolves can't comeback from this?! Davies on the left...Murphy...Kelly...Wolves break it up...
    • 90+1' CAUTION: DANNY MURPHY of Fulham
    • 90' GOAL FOR FULHAM!!!! Unbelieveable!!! From the resulting free-kick Dembele strikes the ball through an almost non-existent wall and into the bottom corner from 25 yards. What a turnaround!
    • 88' RED CARD!!! Etuhu plays a one-two with Eddie Johnson. Christophe Berra blocks Johnson's run and the Scottish defender is shown a second caution. He's off.
    • 87' Flecther releases Jarvis on the left. The winger crosses and Hangeland clears as calm as you like from his own six-yard area.
    • 86' CAUTION: DAVID JONES of Wolves
    • 84' SUB FOR WOLVES: ADLENE GUEDIOURA replaces SYLVAN EBANKS-BLAKE
    • 83' Mark Hughes decides the pace of Eddie Johnson might be the difference between another draw and three points.
    • 82' SUB FOR FULHAM: EDDIE JOHNSON replaces CLINT DEMPSEY
    • 80' Davies sets Fulham off again...to Denbele...Davies....Etuhu...it breaks to Murphy in the box but his shot is blocked.
    • 79' Wolves have a throw on the left. Fulham win it back and look to build down the right, Dempsey is fouled by Craddock. Free-kick to Fulham...Murphy wide to Baird but it runs out for a throw on the Wolves right.
    • 78' Wolves look brighter all of a sudden.
    • 77' CAUTION: KARL HENRY of Wolves
    • 77' CAUTION: CHRISTOPHE BERRA of Wolves blocks Dembele on the halfway line.
    • 76' Jarvis is feed wide on the left...he cuts inside a sends a right-footed shot over the bar. Pity.
    • 75' With 15 minutes to go this is game is wide open. Who's the braver? Etuhu is robbed by Flecther but his own touch is poor and Fulham have it back.
    • 74' ...wide to Kelly...but Wolves clear. Mancienne hoofs clear but Etuhu fouls Ebanks-Blake.
    • 73' Hahnemann launches it downfield. Ebanks-Blake wins it but Fletcher is too far away. FUlham now have a free-kick just inside the Wolves half with Murphy...
    • 72' Wolves force a corner on the left...Jarvis takes and Hangeland heads behind for another corner...this time Schwarzer catches.
    • 70' CAUTION: Matt Jarvis of Wolves for a foul on Zoltan Gera.
    • 69' ALMOST A GOAL FROM NOTHING!! Matt Jarvis' cross from the right starts to drop under Schwarzer's crossbar and the keeper is forced to push it over for a corner.
    • 68' Berra clears under pressure from Dembele...Wolves are tripping over themselves in midfield now. Fulham now look very assured on the ball.
    • 66' Baird runs the ball out of play after Murphy tried to play the defender in behind the Wolves defence.
    • 64' Wolves look rattled. Their shape is far too open and Fulham are walking through them...Dembele shoots from 25 yards but it swings wide of the left-hand post.
    • 63' Ebanks-Blake beats the offside trap but fires weakly into the side-netting.
    • 62' Dembele plays it across the box...Davies gets on the end of it but can only guide it wide of the post.
    • 61' SUB FOR WOLVES: DAVID JONES replaces KEVIN DOYLE
    • 60' Jarvis forces a free-kick from Hughes on the left. It's all go now...Jarvis to take....floats it to the back post...Doyle gets on the end of it but Baird clears off the line!!!
    • 59' CAUTION: Stephen Ward of Wolves
    • 59' Jarvis crosses but it's cleared.
    • 57' Fulham are knocking on the door. But Wolves look to break. Poor hold up play from Ebanks-Blake means Wolves only have a throw on the left.
    • 56' The two Andy's - Johnson and Murray - are in the crowd today. How Fulham would love the former to be fit and soon.
    • 55' Murphy is starting to get a lot more space in midfield and pulling the strings for Fulham. He feeds Dembele but the striker's effort is straight at Hahnemann.
    • 54' Ebanks-Blake nearly gets onto Doyle's centre but Schwarzer is smartly down to it six yards out.
    • 52' Wolves have played themselves into a right mess here. Fulham are growing with every minute that passes.
    • 50' It's all Fulham now. Why did Wolves take off the defender? The play is with the home side. Davies with a corner from the right...Hughes nods it down and Gera hooks it over from six yards when it was easier to score.
    • 48' GOAL FOR FULHAM!!! Equaliser from Dembele. Davies crossed from the left. Wolves failed to clear and Dembele took a touch to switch from his right to his left foot before striking it from 15 yards into Hahnemann's bottom right-hand corner. What a start to the half!
    • 47' Positive move from Wolves with the extra forward - Mick McCarthy senses a second goal. Whereas Mark Hughes has replaced Pantsil with the more assured Baird.
    • 45' SUB FOR WOLVES: STEVEN FLECTHER replaces JELLE VAN DAMME
    • 45' SUB FOR FULHAM: CHRIS BAIRD replaces JOHN PANTSIL
    • 45' We're off for the second half.
    • 45+6' Jarvis takes it but we finally have an end to the half. And what a half. Wolves took a deserved lead but then the sickening injury to Zamora took Fulham's focus but the team from the Midlands are the better side, no question.
    • 45+6' As we enter the 50th minute of the half Phil Dowd continues to play on. Pantsil concedes a needless corner. Can Wolves profit?
    • 45+5' Henry tries to get Doyle going down the right but the pass is overhit. Back with Murphy...hit forward but Wolves repel the atatck.
    • 45+3' Wolves play it back to Hahnemann who lashes it downfield. Hangeland returns the favour...Pantsil feeds Gera down the right but the forward is offside.
    • 45+1' Pantsil crosses but Dempsey's header is weak and floats over.
    • 45' Additional time at the end of the first half.
    • 44' Hangeland is still down and Mark Hughes faces another injury problem. Hangeland is up and looks OK to continue. Fulham breathe a huge sigh of relief.
    • 43' Wolves are really pressing now. Berra has it at the back...he launches it forward and Hangeland beats Ebanks-Blake but takes a blow to the face for his troubles. The big defender is down and requires treatment.
    • 42' CAUTION: John Pantsil of Fulham
    • 41' John Pantsil is a lucky chap. Ebanks-Blake plays Doyle through and the right-back sticks out a leg to bring him down.
    • 40' Wolves are very comfortable. It's in midfield where Fulham are struggling. WIth five minutes to the break the home side could really do witha goal.
    • 39' Ebanks-Blake pushes Hangeland and concedes a soft free-kick. Gera on the right but Mancienne is back to hook clear...Good work from Doyle means Wolves can clear.
    • 37' Free-kick for Fulham 25 yards out and very central. Gera was fouled by Van Damme. Murphy is standing over the kick...and it's woeful. High into the stand.
    • 33' Henry concedes a free-kick 25 yards out on the right. Murphy to take it...it's cleared...just but Hangeland can only volley it towards goal and a deflection gives Fulham a corner....Hahnemann punches, it falsl to Pantsil...he cuts inside onto his left foot before striking it over.
    • 30' Well, that was exactly what Mark Hughes and Fulham didn't need. A goal down and the main goal threat is strechered off. The rest of the Fulham team need to step up now.
    • 29' SUB FOR FULHAM: ZOLTAN GERA replaces BOBBY ZAMORA
    • 27' Disaster for Fulham. Karl Henry makes a good tackle on Bobby Zamora but the Fulham man goes down in agony clutching his right ankle and banging the ground. This doesn't look good at all....He's now on a stretcher and taking oxygen. He'll be taken off and we'll have to wait and see what the damage is.
    • 26' Pantsil feeds Zamora but the forward can't turn on it.
    • 25' Zamora almost latches onto a through ball in the box but Hahnemann comes out to claim with ease. Better from Fulham though.
    • 23' CAUTION FOR WOLVES: Michael Mancienne for a cynical tug of Clint Dempsey's shirt.
    • 20' Good tackle by Henry as Dempsey threatened to put Zamora through...Wolves have it back...
    • 19' There's a big battle in midfield and Mancienne is more than holding his own. Not much from Danny Murphy as yet.
    • 17' Wolves look to make the extra in midfield count. Spread wide to Van Damme who wins a corner from Pantsil. Jarvis to take...but it's cleared. Wolves have the throw on the right...another long ball to the far post but Hughes can let this out for a goal kick.
    • 16' More possession from the home side. Early ball for Davies and he wins a corner off Jarvis. It's a poor one and Wolves clear.
    • 14' Fulham with Kelly down the left...up to Zamora who loses out with the header. Back with Hangeland as Fulham try to re-group.
    • 13' Zamora blazes a free-kick from 20 yards over the bar. Bit of a waste.
    • 9' GOAL FOR WOLVES!! Man-of-the-moment Kevin Doyle spins his man on the right wing. He cuts inside and tries to find Ebanks-Blake in the centre. It's too long for him but not to long for the maurading Jelle van Damme and he hits his shot into the ground and over Schwarzer into the far corner. Great start for Wolves.
    • 6' Berra with a free-kick into the Fulham area which is cleared...Etuhu breaks though the middle and picks out Dempsey...he slides the ball into Davies in the box but he misses his kick and Hahnemann clears up.
    • 2' Bobby Zamora wins the first corner of the game...Davies swings it over but Clint Dempsey can't connect and it goes out for a goal kick.
    • 1' They're off and underway at Craven Cottage.
    • 14.58 Wolves have had a great start to their campaign and another good result will see all of Mick McCarthy's faith repaid.
