Fulham secured promotion to the EPL thanks to Tom Cairney’s cool finish during a nervy Championship playoff final at Wembley.
The 27-year-old latched on to a Ryan Sessegnon through ball to slide home early in the second half. Aston Villa threw everything at Slavisa Jokanovic’s side to try and get back into the game.
They were given a lifeline when Denis Odoi was sent off for a challenge on Jack Grealish - who himself was lucky to stay on the pitch.
But despite a barrage of pressure in the dying stages Fulham held on to ensure their place in next season’s Premier League.
