After a fairly solid start to 2021, the results have slowly started slipping through the fingers of Scott Parker.
The well-dressed Fulham boss has begun looking a little jaded over recent performances, landing just three points from the last 15 available in the Premier League.
This division can be ruthless — Parker is experienced and ugly enough to realise this — but he won’t have tapped out on his chances of survival just yet.
The Cottagers trail Newcastle by just three points, and will have categorised Friday’s clash with Wolves into the file of ‘must win’.
Can Nuno twist the knife on the banks of the River Thames? Or will Scotty P breathe a big sigh of relief…

Our Top Odds Pick – Fulham to win – 7/5 at bet365
Ok, hear us out.
We at Odds Manager HQ have noticed that Fulham have seemingly hit a brick wall in the league, but we fancy their chances against a Wolves side that should already be ‘on the beach’.
Nuno’s side are floating around 14th spot, pretty safe from relegation and miles off the pace for any European back-door chances.
Sure, they showed heart and desire to pull back a 3-0 deficit to West Ham on Monday, but in reality, Fulham will be eyeing this as a very winnable fixture.
Wolves have won just two of their last 11 away fixtures and may be ‘out-passioned’ on Friday.
Our Long Shot – Fulham to beat Wolves 1-0 – 6/1 at bet365
It’s extremely disheartening for Fulham fans to realise they have only won five matches all season.
The two most recent have come via a 1-0 scoreline, and with Parker’s side not known for being lethal upfront, a repeat of this slender win is most likely on Friday.
Five of Wolves’ 13 defeats have also come in 1-0s, so at 6/1 we can smell real value coming out of Craven Cottage.
The previously ignored Aleksandar Mitrovic is a man in form after netting six in four for club and country, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Serbian is the difference maker in this one.
