Striker's penalty against Fulham enough to restore Wolves' place on top of table on goal difference

A second-half penalty from Niall Ennis was enough for Wolverhampton Wanderers to beat Fulham and return to the top of Division 2 as the race for the title heated up.

After a goalless first half Ennis won the spot-kick five minutes after the break after being played through by Pedro Goncalves. The forward converted for the only goal despite some late Fulham pressure. 

Wolves are top on 30 points but only ahead of Reading and Southampton on goal difference. 

Fulham drop to ninth on 17 points.
