CLAUDIO RANIERI was left to count the cost as Fulham missed as string of chances to snatch a rare win.
Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic had SEVEN opportunities to score in the first half. Sub Ryan Sessegnon put them ahead after coming off the bench in the second half.
But Fulham’s continual problems with defending surfaced yet again as Romain Saiss popped up to equalise with just five minutes left on the clock.
Sessegnon’s return to the team after missing two games with a groin strain appeared to have done the trick.
He had been on for just seven minutes when he pounced on a poor clearance by Wolves keeper Rui Patricio and smashed home a volley from ten yards.
But Ranier’s team was unable to see out the game for a much needed win for the Premier League’s bottom club.
While it was annoying for Fulham fans to see their team concede so late in the game it was far more frustraing to see Mitrovic miss out on at least one goal.
By the time ten minutes had ticked off the clock the former Newcastle striker had gone close with two chances. The second of which was a glancing header wide of the post which was a cert for a goal had he picked his spot with more determination.
Then there was a wildly miscued shot in the box, another missed header, a low cross from Christie across the box that was just too far in front of him and then the most frustrating moment of all five minutes before half time.
When Wolves skipper Conor Coady stopped to head clear a cross from the left the ball rolled stright to Mitrovic.

He put defender Willy Boly on his backside with a turn then skipped past Coady again to be clean through on goal – only for his shot to be saved superbly by the feet of keeper Rui Patricio.
But it was the keeper who presented sub Sessegnon with his chance in the 74th minute when he punched the ball clear under pressure in the box straight to Fulham’s bright young star who buried the ball with a clinical drive from ten yards out.
As Wolves chased a point, sub Ivan Cavaleiro raced into the Fulham box and squared the ball from the left. Fulham full back Joe Bryan went down under a challenge from Helder Costa and Saiss followed up to bundle the ball in from a yard out.
Both team had decent shouts for penalties in the first half.
