After encountering three defeats across all competitions, Wolves will be looking to bounce back this weekend when they play host to side Fulham. The match schedules for Sunday at Molineux Stadium with kickoff at4 pm.
The Cottagers head into the match after suffering a 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa and Brentford in their midweek fixture. The recurring losses are putting more strain on Scott Parker, searching for his first three points of the season.
Most teams are reading the style of Wolves with their counterattack formation. It is a fact that Nuno Espirito agreed on a new proactive game style underway. A 4-0 defeat to West Ham was a rude awakening call for the side with hopes of a top-six finish after testing Europa League football.
The October fixtures might come in handy for the side against Fulham, Leeds United, Newcastle United, and Crystal Palace. The stakes keep piling up for the side with the lack of challenging games this month.
Scott Parker is under heavy fire with the preparedness of this side in the Premier League. An opening 3-0 home defeat to Arsenal was taught to be all. However, it is game week 4, and the side is still searching for their first three points. All that is left to salvage the matter is the transfer window that closes on Monday.
