Fulham secured a penalty shoot-out win at a snowy Wolves in the Third Round Replay on Tuesday.

Fulham booked their spot in the next stage of the FA Cup after a 5-3 penalty shoot-out win at a snowy Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Third Round Replay on Tuesday night.

Hugo Rodallega scored the winning penalty - Fulham notched all five of their spot-kicks – as Fulham booked a date with Sunderland in the Fourth Round after an eventful 120 minutes of open play that had seen the match finish 3-3.

Cauley Woodrow gave the Whites a half-time lead when he headed home Kostas Stafylidis’ cross. But Wolves hit back with two goals in quick succession from substitute Dave Edwards and Rajiv van La Parra to make it 2-1. Woodrow, though, levelled soon after and the tie went to extra-time.

In blizzard-like conditions, Wolves made the breakthrough in the second half of extra-time when Edwards found the net from close range and they were heading through until Fulham were awarded a controversial penalty in the dying seconds after Ross McCormack’s free-kick was handled in the wall by Lee Evans. McCormack took the kick and scored to take the game to penalties.

Matt Doherty was the unlucky man to miss from the spot for Wolves with their second penalty and Rodallega sent Fulham through when handed the chance after the clinical Whites scored all their spot-kicks.

Fulham boss Kit Symons named a strong side, making just two changes to the team that lost 1-0 at Cardiff City with Sean Kavanagh and Moussa Dembélé replacing the cup-tied Ryan Tunnicliffe and Hugo Rodallega, who dropped to the bench.

After a minute’s silence to mark the passing of Wolves president Sir Jack Hayward earlier in the day, the Whites began the game sharply at a freezing cold Molineux. Indeed, McCormack almost put Fulham in front in the third minute when his long-range strike was clawed away by Carl Ikeme.

At the other end James Henry cut inside but saw his effort held at the near post by Marcus Bettinelli, before McCormack blazed over in the 12th minute after collecting Kavanagh’s pull-back after a slick Fulham move that saw Seko Fofana burst forward with the ball.

Bettinelli kept his side level on 20 minutes, saving brilliantly from Liam McAlinden who had burst clear after the Fulham defence had gone walkabout.

Fulham were having a lot of joy down the left-hand side and it was through that route that the Whites went in front in the 27th minute. Kostas Stafylidis whipped in a superb cross from near the touchline and Woodrow rose from 12 yards out to send a brilliant header into the far corner. It was Fulham’s first goal since Woodrow found the net from the penalty spot against Sheffield Wednesday on 20th December.

Wolves defender Danny Batth saw a header from a corner held by Bettinelli on his line and a good break by Fulham should have resulted in a better ending than Dembélé shooting high and wide in the 32nd minute.

Fulham thought for all the world they would have a second soon after. McCormack slipped Dembélé in, the Frenchman rounded Ikeme but with two Wolves players on the line, the Frenchman put his effort wide of the near post.

Wolves finished the half strongly without really causing Fulham any problems as the Whites took their 1-0 advantage into the break.

Wolves made a double change for the start of the second half, Edwards and Nouha Dicko replacing Henry and McAlinden respectively.

As the snow and the temperature began to fall, Wolves upped the tempo and van La Parra had a shot from the edge of the box charged down by Jack Grimmer. McCormack then saw an effort blocked from 12 yards by Batth as Fulham countered. Woodrow went into the book in the 58th minute for catching Evans as Wolves broke.

On the hour mark, Shaun Hutchinson bravely threw himself at a Dicko shot from close range after good work by Dominic Iorfa down the right and Stafylidis did likewise as van La Parra let fly, the ball looping off the Greek and onto the roof of Bettinelli’s net. From the resulting corner, Matt Doherty was found unmarked at the back stick but saw his header cannon back off the near post. Batth met the rebound but his shot was cleared off the line by a combination of Stafylidis and Nikolay Bodurov.

Dicko then worked himself into a shooting position but rattled the bar with a ferocious strike from 20 yards but the equaliser that the hosts had been threatening came moments later, Edwards bundling home from close range after meeting Iorfa’s low cross from the right.

Suddenly it was soon 2-1, Kevin McDonald sent van La Parra through and the Dutchman clipped the ball over Bettinelli, with his shot rolling over the line despite the efforts of the sliding Hutchinson. Van La Parra was booked for his celebration.

Two minutes later, though, Fulham were level. McCormack slipped in Dembélé whose mishit shot was tapped home at the far post by Woodrow.

Symons made two changes soon after, Patrick Roberts and Rodallega coming on for Kavanagh and Dembélé. A sliding challenge from Richard Stearman denied Rodallega as he shaped to shoot with seven minutes left, before Edwards curled a shot inches wide of the far post with Bettinelli beaten.

As the game entered injury time, McCormack ended a Wolves attack by bringing down van La Parra to earn a booking, before the referee signalled the end of the 90 to bring an additional 30 minutes.

The first action of note in extra-time came in the 94th minute. The impressive Iorfa jinked his way into the box but saw his shot parried away by Bettinelli. Doherty then saw an effort deflected just wide.

Scott Parker sent Woodrow scampering free down the right soon after. With Rodallega screaming for the pass, Woodrow went for goal and sent his shot into the side-netting. As the action went down the other end, McDonald’s 25-yard drive was brilliantly turned round the post by a sprawling Bettinelli.

Visibility became difficult as the snow began to settle but Rodallega shot just wide before the first half of extra-time came to an end. Parker made way for Zveroti─ç as the second half of extra-time began.

The slippy conditions almost saw Bettinelli let a Dicko shot squirm through his hands in the 118th minute but Wolves got their noses in front moments later, Edwards arriving to smash in a cross from the right by Batth who had won the ball and strode into the Fulham box.

With seconds remaining, Fofana won a free-kick. McCormack took it and saw his effort hit the wall. He claimed handball, the referee agreed and awarded Fulham a penalty. McCormack took it and sent Ikeme the wrong way to make it 3-3 to take the game to penalties.

McCormack went first for Fulham and scored to make it 1-0, with Edwards thumping in for 1-1.

Woodrow was up next and sent his effort past Ikeme for 2-1. Doherty then blazed well wide of the post to give Fulham the advantage.

Stafylidis took Fulham’s third and sent it down the middle for 3-1, with Evans making it 3-2.

Roberts bagged Fulham’s fourth and substitute Leon Clarke, needing to score, did for 4-3.

Rodallega had the chance to send Fulham through and did just that – sending Ikeme the wrong way as Fulham advanced to the next stage.
