Champions Fulham hit the 100-point mark as two penalties from Louis Saha brought them a comfortable win over Wolves.

Both spot-kicks followed fouls by Kevin Muscat on Karl-Heinz Riedle.

The first came in the 23rd minute after Fulham's first incisive attack.

Saha's speed took him past two defenders and enabled him to thread the ball through to Riedle, who was hacked down.

The second came in the 69th minute when Muscat needlessly pushed down the former German international.

Saha made no mistake, giving goalkeeper Michael Oakes no chance with either kick.

For most of the time it was a typical end-of-season encounter.

Fulham had seven players away on international duty, but passed the ball around in their usual fashion without causing too much trouble to the Wolves defence.

The visitors themselves scarcely mustered a shot on target and could have suffered a heavier defeat if Oakes had not tipped a Sean Davis free-kick over the bar and then dived to save from Lee Clark.

For the home fans the highlight of the evening was the first appearance of the season for former skipper Simon Morgan - who has been out injured for 15 months.

Morgan played the final 15 minutes with his every touch greeted with rapturous applause.

The win means the Londoners are still on course to overhaul Sunderland's record of 105 points in the division.
