Fulham v Wolves 14:05 Sun
Terry Connor will seek to improve upon a decent start to his career as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend as Bluesq make the Cottages odds on favourites when his side will visit Craven Cottage to take on Fulham.
The 49 year-old was appointed as manager of the West Midlands outfit last week after spending four years in the assistant role at the club and began his reign by grabbing a draw at high-flying Newcastle United.
Even with the point gained from the Sports Direct Arena however, Wolves still find themselves embroiled in a relegation fight and are a measly point away from the drop zone.
A win may not see their league position change but Wolves will still be keen to come away with a win on Sunday and close the seven point-gap between them and Aston Villa, who currently sit one point above them in 15th.
Fulham won’t pose easy competition however as the West London outfit are yet to be beaten at home in 2012, last succumbing to Manchester United in December.
Since completing a January loan move to Craven Cottage, Bobby Zamora replacement, Pavel Pogrebnyak, has been in inspired form for his new side and hasn’t failed to net in either of his two league games for the club.
He might fancy his chances against Wolves too, as Connor’s side currently have an unenviable defensive record when playing away from Molineux, conceding an average of 1.77 goals per game when playing without home advantage.
The Cottagers have been leaky at the back too but have managed to make up for it when going forward and have the sixth best home attacking record in the English top flight this season.
Wolves will hand late fitness tests to Welsh pair Wayne Hennessey and David Edwards after short periods out with injury while Stephen Kelly could recover in time to feature for Fulham.
