Fulham 1-1 Wolves: Fulham denied crucial win (1:30)

A late Romain Saiss equaliser and a heroic goal-line clearance from Conor Coady prevented Fulham from beating Wolves. (1:30)

Romain Saiss bundled home from close range to earn Wolves a 1-1 draw at Fulham and deny Claudio Ranieri's side their first win in six Premier League matches.

Substitute Ryan Sessegnon struck to give the London side hope of three points as they fought to move off the bottom of the table, but Saiss scored an 85th-minute equaliser. Despite the goal, Fulham moved up to 19th -- at least temporarily -- before Huddersfield's trip to Manchester United.

Fulham showed defensive steel as they battled for a second consecutive clean sheet after achieving their first in a goalless draw at Newcastle United on Saturday, but eventually caved in.

They came closer in a tight first half with Aleksandar Mitrovic a constant thorn in Wolves's side, but Rui Patricio was alert to beat away the Serbian's strike after he wormed free in the area.

Sessegnon made the breakthrough for Fulham seven minutes after being introduced as a substitute, volleying in after Rui Patricio tried to punch the ball away.

Saiss levelled, however, after Ivan Cavaleiro's cross sat up for him at the back post with Joe Bryan unable to clear the ball, and Wolves defender Conor Coady hacked a late Mitrovic effort off the line to leave his side in mid-table.
