Fulham hammer sorry Wolves

Published Add your comment

A hat-trick from Pavel Pogrebnyak and a brace from Clint Dempsey steered Fulham to a comprehensive and well-deserved 5-0 win over a woeful Wolves side at Craven Cottage.

Wolves had fought back from a 2-0 half-time deficit to draw at Newcastle in new manager Terry Connor's first match in charge last weekend, but a repeat never looked likely in west London as his team conceded three second-half goals to slip back into the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League, with Martin Jol's Fulham side recording a third straight win.

Pogrebnyak took his tally to five in three games since joining on loan from Stuttgart in January while Dempsey now has 12 for the season, with a host of other Fulham chances going begging as Wolves looked sluggish in defence and toothless in attack.
