Wolves battled to a thrilling 4-4 draw with Fulham at the weekend as they claimed a vital point.
It was a hugely confusing day for Wolves' fans as they saw their side take a 4-3 lead in the 90th minute which prompted huge celebration amongst the fans, only for two of their three points to be snatched away from them at the last moment. Their range of emotion was very similar to that of David Edwards, who spoke to the Express and Star about what he felt during their enthralling draw with Fulham.
Wolves actually took the lead on the day as Kortney Hause opened the scoring, but the home side found themselves 3-1 down inside the first-half as the visitors threatened to blow them away. However, their second-half performance was much improved as they fired themselves into the lead, the last of which was courtesy of David Edward's in the 90th minute.

Of course, Fulham found the back of the net in the 94th minute to seal a thrilling 4-4 draw as the fans and players were left deflated by Fulham's sudden equaliser. David Edwards spoke to the Express and Star about these emotions, and what he felt throughout their epic game: "That was all the emotions you ever feel on a football pitch inside 90 minutes. We went from relief at being 1-0 up to absolute dejection going in 3-1 down. Then really at half-time we said ‘whatever we do, we don’t concede any more – we get back into the game but we don’t let it turn into a four or five-one defeat’".
"The gaffer was ultra-positive at half-time. The changes he made were very offensive and it was great to get back into it. To get to a stage where we were 4-3 up and five minutes were added on, we kind of knew they were going to get a chance".

While the result was a disappointing one, the actions of the players and the manager were very positive as they did everything they could to claw their way back into the game. It is exactly this sort of fighting spirit that was missing from Wolves this term under Walter Zenga, and it is very promising for the fans that Paul Lambert seems to be installing some real confidence into his team.
Wolves now face a trip to Wales to take on struggling Cardiff on Tuesday as they look to continue this run without a defeat. Going into the congested festive period, this is a must win game as a defeat can quickly snowball into a number of loses. It is therefore vital for Lambert's side then, that they kick off this tough period with a victory that could send morale sky rocketing.
