Wolverhampton Wanderers secured what could be a key victory in our hopes for a potential European adventure in our second season back in the Premier League as we took all the points from Fulham on Saturday.
Leander Dendoncker’s late goal in the second half was enough to send victory our way as we closed out the 2018/19 home campaign at the Molineux in style and there’s no denying it’s been an absolutely fantastic season on a number of levels.
The points effectively guarantee us seventh spot for the season, although it’s not yet mathematically guaranteed and does go down to the final round of fixtures as we bring the curtain down on the year.
Speaking to Sky Sports during their Soccer Saturday coverage of the games, pundit Matt Le Tissier heaped praise on our goalscorer for the way he’s come to prominance at the club in the second half of the campaign.
“I think the second half of the season he’s really come into his own. He didn’t get much a chance in the first half of the season if I remember, because he wasn’t in that team that was unchanged pretty much at the start of the season. But when he’s got his chances he’s certainly taken them and made himself a real feature in the side here.”
The 24-year-old joined the club last August on a loan deal from Anderlecht and the opening half of the year wasn’t great as he adjusted and got up to pace, making only four appearances prior to January. The New Year has seen a new him, and he now boasts 23 starting appearances to his name along with an additional two showings from the bench and in those games he’s now chipped in with two goals.
The lad has certainly come good and it would be no surprise now to see the deal turn permanent.
