Fulham upsets league leaders

Monday, February 26, 2018

LONDON - Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a 2-0 defeat at playoff chasing Fulham yesterday and could have their advantage at the top of England's second tier trimmed to six points by Cardiff City today.

Goals by Ryan Sessegnon and Aleksandar Mitrovic in each half gave Fulham a deserved win at Craven Cottage and kept them firmly in the hunt for promotion.

Aston Villa moved to within a point of second-placed Cardiff with a 4-2 win at Sheffield Wednesday while Derby County remain fourth after a 3-3 draw at Reading.

Fulham, unbeaten in the league since the turn of the year, are fifth, five points adrift of Cardiff who host sixth-placed Bristol City on Sunday.

There were 32 goals in the second-tier on Saturday — six of them shared out between Middlesbrough and bottom club Sunderland who salvaged a point with a last-gasp equaliser.
