Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic is expecting an ‘aggressive’ Wolves side to provide a tough test when they visit Craven Cottage tomorrow.
The Whites’ last home game before the international break pits them against the Championship strugglers, whose form has picked up in recent games with victories at Brentford and against rock-bottom Rotherham.
The return fixture at Molineux in December was one of the most dramatic games of the season so far – Fulham snatched a point in an eight-goal thriller thanks to Floyd Ayite's last-minute strike.
Both sides are desperate for points in their respective battles at each ends of the table, and Jokanovic is wary of Wolves’ strengths.
“Wolves are in a relegation battle, but in the last few games they have been in good form,” the Fulham boss said.
“They won their last game against Brentford and they’re an aggressive team. They are a team who compete very well and are very fast when they attack.
“We have a tough game in front of us. We are in our battle as well, we need the points and we are going to try and put in one of our best performances to get the points.”
While Jokanovic doesn’t expect a repeat of that game, he thinks it’ll hold Fulham in good stead when Paul Lambert’s team come to town tomorrow.
“I expect something different,” he added. “We played very well for the first 45 minutes there: we scored goals.
"Then in the second half we made some mistakes and they pressed us high and hard. They pushed us back and scored three goals before we equalised in the last moment.
“I expect something a little bit different. I don’t expect that kind of result.
“But that experience from when we played them serves us well as we prepare for tomorrow’s game.”
