Three first-half goals saw Fulham run out convincing 3-0 winners away at Molineux.

Fulham returned to winning ways with a resounding 3-0 victory away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday evening at Molineux in the penultimate match of the season.

First-half strikes from Mattias Kait, Elijah Adebayo and Luca de la Torre after an early Wolves onslaught saw the Whites run out convincing winners.

Wolves started the match brightly and had Magnus Norman in the Fulham net under pressure from the get go. Hakeem Odoffin saw his delivery headed wide by Bradley Reid in the sixth minute and shortly after Donovan Wilson had an effort deflected off target following a neat cross.

The deadlock was broken somewhat against the run of play in the 18th minute. Captain Josh Smile switched the ball out to the right flank to Ryheem Sheckleford, who dug out a cross to Josh Walker. The two youngsters combined well and eventually the ball found its way to Kait just outside the box, who fired a left-footed shot into the back of the net.

The Estonian was involved moments later after some more excellent work from Sheckleford who linked up well with de la Torre. After a cross, Kait sent a header narrowly wide from six yards.

The lead was doubled in the 25th minute. After a good ball from Sheckleford, Walker turned his defender and played a lofted cross to the back post. The Wolves defence failed to deal with it and Adebayo reacted quickly to poke past Harry Burgoyne.

Fulham continued to press and reaped the rewards of some loose defending from the Wolves backline in the 36th minute. A Fulham corner wasn't cleared and Ian Pino Soler played it into Kait. The scorer of the first goal played a cross into the box that eluded everyone except for an unmarked de la Torre who slotted home from close range.

Wolves were quick out of the traps at the start of the second period but Magnus Norman was alive to an Odoffin shot following a positive run. Walker was unlucky not to give the Whites another goal in the 62nd minute with an angled drive but Burgoyne made a tidy save to push behind.

Wolves pushed for a consolation goal in the dying stages but were unable to break through a solid Fulham side and Grant's men were able to see out the tie and head back to London with all three points.
