Fulham's Reserves returned to winning ways on Tuesday evening with a two-goal win over Wolves at Molineux.A second-half strike from Eddie Johnson handed Fulham the lead before substitute Marcello Trotta forced an own goal from Dunleavy - sealing the three points.
Wolves made the stronger start to this encounter with early chances falling to Michael Kightly and Stefan Maierhofer. The Whites soon settled down and good work from Bjorn Helge Riise on the quarter hour mark set up Eddie Johnson with a shooting opportunity which was blocked.
Following something of a lull in play, Wolves turned up the heat once more as a string of chances came their way - thankfully David Stockdale was equal to all of them. The Fulham stopper showed his quality with excellent saves denying Andy Keogh, Maierhofer and Nenad Milijas.
Eddie Johnson handed Fulham the lead with a simple finish on 59 minutes. Danny Hoesen timed his forward run to perfection to catch out the Wolves defensive line. Wolves keeper and former Fulham player, Marcus Hahnemann, could only parry Hoesen's effort into the path of Johnson who touched the ball into an unguarded net.
The home side pressed for the equaliser but once again Stockdale was equal to the task, twice denying Keogh.
Marcello Trotta replaced goalscorer Johnson with 15 minutes remaining on the clock and the Italian had a direct hand in Fulham's second goal of the evening when his low cross was diverted past Hahnemann by Wolves defender John Dunleavy on 84 minutes.
Wolves Reserves: Hahnemann, Foley, Mancienne, Elokobi, Hill, Kightly, Milijas, Rooney, Ward, Keogh, Maierhofer.
Fulham Reserves: Stockdale, Pritchard, Anderson, Briggs, Kallo, Moscatiello, Uwezu (Jones 90+2), Riise, E Johnson (Trotta 74), Hoesen (Harris 88), Smith.
