Fulham books play-off final spot

Fulham books play-off final spot

Away goals do not count in the play-offs, so if Fulham were able to earn a 1-0 win during the 90 minutes, extra-time and penalty shoot-out would follow.

Sessegnon scored the opener and delivered the corner for Denis Odoi's victor as Fulham overcame a 1-0 first leg deficit and earned themselves a first trip to Wembley in 43 years.

They will meet Aston Villa or Middlesbrough, with Socceroos captain Mile Jedinak's goal in the first leg of their playoff giving the Villans the advantage before Tuesday's return leg.

The 23-year-old has said that such occasions was "the reason he chose to join Fulham".

As we've discussed in this space before, Alex Ovechkin has been unfairly maligned as a playoff performer throughout his career. How did they plan on doing that? "We're getting away from what has made us successful in the past", Stamkos said.


'Hopefully we'll get to the Premier League'.

A one-handed effort kept out a strong header from Fulham's Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and Carson was at his best again to keep out a powerful drive from Aboubakar Kamara.

Carson, though, could do nothing about Odoi's bullet header from Sessegnon's corner in the 66th minute, the Belgian defender rising above his marker to power it into the net.

Defeat condemns Derby to a third play-off semi-final defeat in five years and an 11th successive campaign in the second tier. We always knew if we were to keep going we'd get the first goal and thankfully I did.

"Ultimately certain things have just let us down a little bit tonight and we've got to make sure that we can try to add those elements in the summer in terms of our recruitment to be a little bit better or be a bit more flexible at times".

'(Scoring the first goal was) very special. Tonight, we gave everything but it just wasn't quite enough. The second put pressure on them.

'I just get my head down and work hard for the team'. I think you take stock of it; at the moment you are disappointed and Fulham are ecstatic because they are through to Wembley.
