Wolves' David Edwards celebrates scoring their first goal

Wolves partook in an enthralling 4-4 draw with Fulham on Saturday as they picked up another vital point.

Paul Lambert oversaw a thrilling draw against Fulham on Saturday as Wolves battled back for a valuable point against the London side. However, it will be disappointing for Wolves' fans that they dropped two points after they managed to go into the lead on 90 minutes. David Edwards, who scored the goal to put the Wanderers 4-3 up, told the Express and Star about the incredible moment he scored his goal, even if the game ended in disappointment. 

Kortney Hause opened the scoring for Wolves, however, his goal was cancelled out, and then they found themselves 3-1 behind before half-time. Matt Doherty cut the deficit before Ivan Cavaleiro struck to level the game. David Edwards then found the net in the 90th minute and it seemed that it would be the winner, however, Floyd Ayite scored his second of the day to break Wanderers' hearts.

While Edwards, like everyone else, was left deflated as they dropped points, he admitted that his goal was a huge moment for him. He told the Express and Star: "I said to the boys that was my best moment on a football pitch – better than when we beat Leeds 4-3. I did an interview not long ago where I said my best moment was the 4-3 win against Leeds".

"Being 3-1 down and with everything that has been going on at the club recently, the fans need some positivity and that goal gave them something to get back to 4-3. It gave the whole city a lift and when I scored it felt like absolute ecstasy".

"If you could bottle that feeling up, it would be incredible".

For Edwards, it was a superb moment as he was able to put his team into the lead after they had seemed as though they would fall to a heavy loss. However, his joy, and that of the fans too, was cut short by Fulham's equaliser as the Wanderers were denied at the last.

Paul Lambert must now turn his attention to a trip to face Cardiff City on Tuesday evening. The Welsh side, who are currently in 22nd in the table with 20 points constitute a big chance for Wolves to continue to put ground between themselves and the relegation zone.
