Parker ready for Wolves showdown

Fulham prepare for a crunch Premier League showdown against Wolves at Craven Cottage with Scott Parker proclaiming every game is a "must-win".

The London side have seven games left to save their top-flight skins starting with a visit from a Wolves side who have tumbled down the table in recent weeks.

Parker's side, stuck in the bottom three all season, had managed to draw level with the sides outside the relegation zone after their stunning 1-0 win at Liverpool last month.

But a trio of defeats - against Manchester City, Leeds and Aston Villa - have undone much of that good work.

Now Fulham find themselves three points adrift of 17th-placed Newcastle immediately above them – though they would move above the Magpies on goal difference if they can return to winning ways against Nuno Espirito Santo's men.

The stakes couldn't be higher for Parker, who has pinpointed Alexander Mitrovic's return to form as potentially decisive.

Mitrovic opened the scoring in the 3-1 loss at Villa on Sunday - his first Fulham goals since September - after bagging five in three games for Serbia during the international break.

"He chose a good time to find his form," Parker told reporters. "He looks sharp, a real buzz about him. Sometimes you need to get away to get that spark back. He has a massive part to play this season."

Wolves are without a win in five and Parker added: "It's a must-win game, but last week was a must-win, next week is a must-win. We're at seven games to go and everything is a must-win."

Fulham are rated 2.50 shots to beat Wolves, who are an 3.00 chance.
