Thank you for joining our coverage, we hope you enjoyed the game. Until next time, goodbye.
Fulham face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium next, while Wolves host Sheffield United at Molineux.
There goes the full-time whistle! Fulham's fourth consecutive defeat leaves them three points from safety, but having played two more games than the teams around them. Willian Jose had a goal controversially disallowed by VAR for Wolves on the brink of half-time, but the visitors snatched all three points in stoppage-time when Traore's near-post strike was allowed in by Areola. It finishes 1-0 to Wolves!
90' + 4' SAVE! Maja has a last-gasp chance to equalise, but he doesn't quite catch it cleanly and Patricio is there to claim the ball! That's surely the last action of the game.
90' + 3' Traore has scored in the Premier League for the first time since December 2019 (against Manchester City), ending a run of 48 games without a goal in the competition.
Fábio Silva
90' + 2' Silva latches onto the ball and turns well before threading a lovely pass in behind for Traore, whose athleticism sees him burst onto it and find the back of the net!
Adama Traoré
90' + 2' GOAL!!! TRAORE HAS SURELY WON IT FOR WOLVES!!! The referee plays advantage and Silva slips the ball in behind for Traore to chase down the right side of the box. The angle is tight, but Traore strikes an effort towards the near post and Areola fails to keep it out! The Fulham goalkeeper had to do better in that position, but it's 1-0 to Wolves!
90' There will be just three minutes added on. Can Fulham grab the winning goal that they desperately need?
88' SAVE! Moutinho turns provider this time, receiving a short corner and delivering a quality cross into the box that Saiss heads towards the bottom-left corner, but Areola is across again and makes the save!
86' SAVE! Moutinho meets a left-wing cross at the near post and nods it at goal, but Areola is positioned well and holds on to the ball!
Ivan Cavaleiro
O. Aina
84' Parker makes his final change in search of a much-needed winning goal, replacing a defender in Aina with a winger in Cavaleiro.
84' The ball breaks for Mitrovic on the left and he takes one touch before attempting to deliver a cross with his left foot, but he gets it all wrong and slices the ball straight out of play.
82' SAVE! A deep right-wing cross misses its intended target in the middle and bounces just in front of Robinson just outside the box. The full-back gets over it and smacks a half-volley at goal with his weaker right foot, but Patricio is equal to it and makes the save!
80' Anguissa saunters down the left and curls a cross into the middle that Neves has to head over his own bar! The corner is then well-defended and Wolves survive.
Fábio Silva
Willian José
78' Nuno makes a change up front, replacing Willian Jose with Silva for the closing stages of the contest.
77' OVER! Dendoncker meets a free-kick at the back post and nods a looping effort towards the far corner, but it's a little too high and it lands on the roof of the net!
75' WIDE! Reid darts to the edge of the box and tries to lash one inside the near post, but he loses his balance as he takes the strike and sends it just wide!
J. Maja
H. Reed
74' Meanwhile, Parker does likewise, but replaces central midfielder Reed with an extra striker in Maja, changing systems.
M. Gibbs-White
Daniel Podence
74' Nuno makes his second change now, replacing Podence with Gibbs-White in the space behind the two front-men.
72' Lemina has a pop from the edge of the box, but it's charged down and blocked away. Fulham are starting to commit a few more bodies forward in search of a win.
70' POST! Reed hits a volley towards the near post from a tight angle and Patricio gets across to cover before watching the ball clip the outside of the post and go behind!
68' CLOSE! Saiss takes a free-kick from the right on the edge of the box and goes for power towards the goalkeeper's side, but it whistles agonisingly past the top-left corner! 
65' Mitrovic tries to latch onto a ball in behind, but Coady blocks him off and Patricio is sharply off his line to claim it.
A. Zambo Anguissa
R. Loftus-Cheek
63' Parker makes his first change of the game, replacing the ineffective Loftus-Cheek with Anguissa in midfield.
61' SAVE! Reed curls in a cross from a deep position on the right that Mitrovic meets at the back post, but the angle is tight and the striker's firm, downward header is saved by Patricio!
58' Dendoncker trips Reid up on the wing and Fulham have a free-kick, but they can't make the most of it and Wolves get the ball away.
56' Fulham have started to apply some pressure now and are looking as threatening as they have all game, peppering the Wolves box with crosses.
54' Aina sends the ball forward down the right for Tete to run in behind, but the flag goes up for offside and halts the attack.
52' The second half has started in the same vein that most of the first was played in. It's still very tight and cagey from both sides.
50' Fulham and Wolves are the two teams who have had the most Premier League games this season without a shot on target being recorded in the first half. Both sides have also scored just two first-half goals in their last 12 Premier League games.
48' Mitrovic goes down in the Wolves area and Dendoncker joins him on the deck. However, it's not a penalty, as Mitrovic actually slips and takes his opponent down with him, leading to a Wolves free-kick.
46' We're back underway for the second half!
Aside from that VAR-related incident, both teams have been very cautious in the first half, leading to a cagey affair in which neither goalkeeper was forced into a save. Both managers will surely demand more urgency and quality from their players in the second half.
There goes the half-time whistle! In what was a very cagey first half, the major talking point is undoubtedly Willian Jose's disallowed goal just before the break, with VAR deciding that Podence was offside in the build-up despite him appearing level. Both Nuno and the Wolves players had some stern words for the referee after the whistle went as their frustrations boiled over. It's 0-0 at the break.
45' + 1' GOAL DISALLOWED! Coady picks out a lovely big switch to Semedo on the right and the wing-back slides it in behind for Podence, who hits the byline and dinks a pinpoint cross into the box for Willian Jose, who powers a header in! The striker thinks he's given his side the lead with his first goal for the club, but the VAR chalks it off for offside against Podence! The Portuguese looked to be level from the replays, but the goal won't count!
43' Fulham's attempts to go long towards Mitrovic haven't really paid dividends to this point. The ball just hasn't stuck.
41' Traore has had the most shots (27) without finding the net in the Premier League so far this season.
39' Fulham win their first corner of the game down the right and Reed takes, but the delivery is disappointing and headed comfortably clear.
37' WIDE! Traore, in his new central position, drives at the heart of the Fulham defence and jinks his way into the box before lashing across goal with his left foot, but he drags it well wide of the far post!
35' That enforced Wolves change has led to a change of shape from a 4-2-3-1 to a 3-4-1-2. Dendoncker has dropped to Coady's right to make a back three, leaving Moutinho and Neves as the double pivot behind Podence, while Traore has pushed up to support Willian Jose in attack.
32' Neto is down again and this time he will need to be seen to by the medical staff. It looks like that earlier knock is still bothering him and Nuno will have to think about making a change.
João Moutinho
Pedro Neto
32' Neto is forced off now due to that injury and is replaced by a central midfielder in Moutinho.
30' BLOCK! A left-wing cross into the Wolves box causes chaos as the visitors struggle to get it clear, but it doesn't quite fall for a white shirt to strike until it comes out to Mitrovic, who puts his foot through the ball, only for Coady to block it away!
28' WIDE! Robinson takes the ball down well on the left and has time to set himself before floating a wonderful ball into the middle that Loftus-Cheek rises highest to meet, but he glances agonisingly wide of the far post! He had to hit the target from there!
26' Wolves win another corner down the left, but it's wasted as the delivery is straight into the gloves of Areola.
24' Neto is down holding his left knee after a coming-together with Robinson. The ball is put out of play, but the winger appears to be okay and can carry on after a moment or two.
22' Traore tries to make the most of a hopeful ball down the line by Ait-Nouri, racing to latch onto it before fooling Tete with a neat turn and then winning a corner with a deflected cross.
20' Fulham are starting to mix it up now, alternating between short passes and long, ranking ones towards Mitrovic in the hope that the burly striker will be able to hold it up or flick it on.
18' Fulham are still yet to record a single shot of any kind. Wolves have had just one, which was Willian Jose's off-target header in the second minute.
16' Fulham have started to generate just a little bit of momentum now, moving the ball more quickly and looking to pull the Wolves defenders out of position.
14' Tete gets forward down the right again and swings a cross into the middle, aiming for Mitrovic, but it's flicked away from him and cleared.
12' A significant contributing factor to the slow, methodical pace of these opening stages is both teams' propensity to regroup very quickly into an organised shape in their own half after losing the ball. There's no space in behind for either side to break into.
10' Neither side has taken too many risks on the ball so far. There's been plenty of keep-ball in unthreatening areas of the pitch before a half-hearted foray forward results in a turnover.
8' Wolves get their foot on the ball and force Fulham to retreat. The visitors are playing it around safely at the moment - it's been a cagey start to the game from both sides.
6' Fulham are enjoying a strong spell of possession now, working it around securely and keeping Wolves penned in.
4' Fulham try to build down the right through Tete, who gallops forward on the overlap as Lemina slides it through to him, but Traore tracks back diligently and muscles the Fulham wing-back off the ball.
2' WIDE! Semedo curls in a free-kick from the right and Willian Jose rises highest to meet it in the middle, but he can only glance his header wide of the far post!
1' We're underway at Craven Cottage!
Wolves have scored the first goal in just one of their last 20 Premier League games - a 1-0 win against Leeds United.
Kongolo ended on the losing side in 31 of his 45 Premier League appearances for Huddersfield Town (69%). The only players with a higher loss percentage with 40+ games are Kevin McDonald and Andy Gray (both 71%). However, Kongolo's last two Premier League victories have come against Wolves.
Meanwhile, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo keeps faith with the same 11 players that started in the 3-2 defeat to West Ham in their last match. Willy Boly, Jonny, Fernando Marcal and Raul Jimenez are all sidelined through injury.
Fulham boss Scott Parker makes two changes following his side's 3-1 defeat against Aston Villa last time out, with Adarabioyo dropping to the bench and the injured Ademola Lookman missing out. Robinson comes into the side along with Kongolo, who makes his first Premier League appearance for the club. Marek Rodak and Tom Cairney remain unavailable due to injuries of their own.
Wolves substitutes: Morgan Gibbs-White, Joao Moutinho, Maximilian Kilman, Lewis Richards, Owen Otasowie, Fabio Silva, Ki-Jana Hoever, Vitinha, John Ruddy.
Wolves XI (4-2-3-1): Rui Patricio; Nelson Semedo, Conor Coady, Roman Saiss, Rayan Ait-Nouri; Leander Dendoncker, Ruben Neves; Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence, Adama Traore; Willian Jose.
Fulham substitutes: Josh Maja, Joe Bryan, Josh Onomah, Tosin Adarabioyo, Michael Hector, Fabri, Tim Ream, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Ivan Cavaleiro.
Fulham XI (3-4-2-1): Alphonse Areola; Ola Aina, Joachim Andersen, Terence Kongolo; Kenny Tete, Harrison Reed, Mario Lemina, Antonee Robinson; Bobby Decordova-Reid, Ruben Loftus-Cheek; Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Fulham need every point they can pick up as they attempt a great escape from relegation and will be hoping to claim all three against a Wolves side that are winless in their last five outings and looking to arrest their slide down the table.
