English Premiership

Fulham beat Wolves

2010-09-11 19:16

London - Mousa Dembele scored his second goal in injury time Saturday as Fulham rallied to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 in the Premier League.

Dembele, who joined in the off-season from AZ Alkmaar, sent his free kick into the net after Wolves defender Christophe Berra had been sent off for two yellow cards.

Jelle van Damme had given Wolves a 1-0 lead in the 10th minute by knocking in Kevin Doyle's cross. But Dembele equalized in the 49th at Craven Cottage with a low shot into the corner from a cross that team-mate Zoltan Gera failed to control.

Fulham striker Bobby Zamora was carried off in the first half with a broken ankle after being brought down by a hard challenge from Wolves captain Karl Henry.

The 29-year-old Zamora, who won his first England cap last month, thumped the turf in agony and was given oxygen. Henry was on the receiving end of an angry tirade from Zamora's team-mate, Clint Dempsey.

Fulham manager Mark Hughes remonstrated with referee Phil Dowd at halftime over the challenge, which will sideline Zamora for four months.

"It's a shame but I don't really lay the blame on the player (Henry)," Hughes said. "There's always a danger if you get tackled from the side or from behind that players' legs can get trapped. I don't think there was any intent to hurt Bobby. You don't expect the circumstances of the injury to be the result of a challenge like that, but it can happen.

"At the time I was a little bit disappointed that the referee didn't view it as a foul."

Apart from losing Zamora, Fulham will also feel aggrieved that Dowd failed to award two clear penalties, one in each half as Wolves crashed to their first Premier League defeat of the season.
