Confirmed: Wolves v Fulham line-ups: Afobe starts

Wolves Stadium

Wolves host Fulham in a midweek Championship kick-off.

Wolves host Fulham this evening, aiming to keep momentum in their battle to reach the play-offs.

They come into the game in confident manner, having demolished Rotherham United 5-0 at the weekend.

Wolves are five points behind the play-off spots at present.

Opponents Fulham are a club who had their own goals of promotion before the season started, but a nightmare start made survival a simple priority.

They now look set to be happy to settle for a mid-table finish, currently in 19th position. They are five points clear of the relegation zone, but are in a poor run of form, having won just two of their last 10 games, and failing to win any of the last five.

Fulham's away form is also among the worst in the division, having lost four of their last five games on their travels.

They have won just three away games all season, while Wolves have lost four of 16 their home matches, drawing four and winning eight.
