Fulham FC got back to winning ways following their 3-2 triumph over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.

Alex Iwobi broke the deadlock early on for the hosts by sliding home from Antonee Robinson’s low cross on his 300th career appearance. The hosts were soon pulled level when Matheus Cunha met Jean-Ricner Bellegarde’s ball to the far post with a downward header.

Wolves, however, conceded a penalty after Tom Cairney had been brought down by Nélson Semedo early into the second half at Craven Cottage.

Willian extended his 100% top-flight record from the spot by wrongfooting José Sá to restore the lead as the Cottagers appeared set to seal a first victory since 7 October. But Hwang Hee-chan restored parity by winning and then rifling in a penalty for his seventh Wolves goal of the season in the final 15 minutes after being fouled by Tim Ream.

There was still time for further drama when João Gomes fouled Harry Wilson, leading to the game’s third penalty – a first in the current campaign – in the 94th minute. Willian stepped up once more to convert and propel Fulham leapfrogging Nottingham Forest into 14th in the table, level on points with Wolves in 12th.
