Slavisa Jokanovic is paying no attention to past results as he prepares to take Fulham to Wolverhampton Wanderers this evening.
The Serbian head coach is still seeking his first win in charge since taking over from caretaker manager Stuart Gray and wants to arrest an alarming run of one point from Fulham’s last five league games. He believes that last season’s dramatic FA Cup penalty shoot-out win at Molineux will have no bearing on this week’s encounter, given how much has changed about both sides since then.
Jokanovic insisted: “I cannot compare this and last season. I’m not living in the past. Fulham is different now; Wolves is different; and although they have a very strong team, we must find the best way for an important game.”
The Fulham boss is considering a number of changes following the FA Cup exit at the hands of Sheffield Wednesday last weekend. Jokanovic will definitely be without Cauley Woodrow after the striker underwent surgery on his fractured foot earlier this week. The former Luton forward will be out for up to three months and Moussa Dembele is expected to start in his place.
