Fulham have failed to score in the first half of their last 7 Premier League games, and if the game continues in this vein, it will certainly become 8 by the break.
Zamora has a good effort on goal, but was already given offside by the assistant referee, neither side still to really trouble the goalkeepers.
After a clash with Murphy, David Jones is seen to by the Wolves medical team, but despite what looks like a blood injury, Jones is now patched up and back up to continue.
No major chances of note yet in the opening exchanges, however with both sides all but safe, the slightly laid back start is understandable.
