Wolverhampton Wanderers welcomed Fulham to the Molineux earlier today for our final home Premier League game of the 2018/19 campaign.

With advantage ours in the chase for seventh spot in the top flight table and a potential European adventure next season, the overriding desire was to simply end what has been a very positive return to the top division in the right manner.

Advantage remains ours as although Fulham dominated the ball, we created 19 chances and with six on target, Leander Dendoncker broke the deadline with 15 minutes remaining in the tie to ultimately give us a 1-0 victory.

Nuno was looking to the future somewhat as we saw late appearances for Will Norris, Ruben Vinagre and 21-year-old Max Kilman also came on as a substitute to make his senior bow.

All in, a decent day.

Speaking to the BBC following the fulltime whistle, head coach Nuno Espirito Santo said of the game.

“This is an important win, it was important to the atmosphere at Molineux. Everyone expected us to win but it was difficult because we faced a tough team. But I’m really pleased with the way we finished the season at home, the fans have been fantastic this season. We had to be focused, organised and disciplined because Fulham had chances also, it was a tight game.”
