Fulham fans react on Twitter to Cauley Woodrow's performance against Wolves

Fulham

Fulham fans took to Twitter on Tuesday night to react to Cauley Woodrow's performance in the FA Cup shootout win at Wolves.

Fulham secured a 5-3 penalty shootout win at a snowy Wolverhampton Wanderers in Tuesday night’s FA Cup third round replay following a thrilling 3-3 draw after extra-time.

Striker Cauley Woodrow gave the Whites the lead just before the half-hour when he headed home Kostas Stafylidis’ cross, before Wolves hit back in the second-half to go in front with two goals in quick succession from substitute Dave Edwards and Rajiv van La Parra.

Woodrow levelled things at 2-2 in the final 15 minutes to send the match to extra-time, but Edwards looked to be sending Wolves through after adding his second in the 109th-minute.

Ross McCormack’s penalty in the dying seconds forced a shootout, however, with Fulham converting all five of their efforts to secure a fourth-round trip to Sunderland.

"What a way to win a cup tie. It had a bit of everything,” manager Kit Symons told the BBC at the final whistle.

"When Ross McCormack's shot hit the wall, I thought our chance was gone, but I was delighted the penalty was given and he slotted home coolly.”

With fans rushing to social media after a dramatic result, it was youngster Woodrow who received most of the plaudits, having doubled his goal tally for the season on the night in a surprise start.
