Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to continue to their impressive Championship campaign with a win against Fulham when they meet at Molineux on Friday night.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side currently sits at the top of the table after 15 games with 32 points and will be looking to take their lead to four points over Cardiff City.

However, the Wolves manager is well aware of the threat the Cottagers will provide them with, as Slavisa Jokanovic’s team will be looking to improve on their campaign, sitting 16th with just 19 points so far.

Wolves will have midfielder Romain Saiss available for the home fixture as he had to miss out on Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over Norwich City, where they stayed the night for the player’s to be sufficiently rested before Friday’s test, after he had to serve his one-match suspension, according to BBC Sport.

The Molineux outfit will also have striker Leo Bonatini in the side as he looks to continue his fine form in front of goal, bagging his ninth goal of the season against the Canaries, making him the joint-top goalscorer so far.

Wolves go into the fixture with the slightly better outcome in terms of selection, with a Fulham side that has been depleted by injuries and suspension.

Cottagers man Aboubakar Kamara is unavailable after he received a red card in their 2-0 defeat to high-flying Bristol City on Tuesday evening.

Fulham will also be without Lucas Piazon and Sheyi Ojo, who are on loan from West London neighbours Chelsea and Liverpool respectively, as they both look to recover from long-term injuries.

Jokanovic will be hoping his Craven Cottage side can end a bad run of form, with their last victory in the Championship coming at the end of September, with two draws and two defeats in October.
