Preview

Fulham host Wolves in the Premier League on Friday, with both sides in dire need of a win.

Scott Parker's side have lost three games on the trot, which has put their survival chances in jeopardy. Fulham are currently 18th in the league, three points off safety, but having played a game more than Newcastle in 17th.

Parker will know that his side need a win against a stuttering Wolves side if they are to have any hopes of staying up this season.

As for Wolves, Nuno Espirito Santo's side have also suffered in recent weeks, having not won any of their last five games.

Wolves have lost back-to-back games which has seen them fall to 14th in the Premier League. A win on Friday would take Nuno's side to 12th in the table.

Both sides are in terrible form which should make for an interesting clash.
