Fulham 2-0 Derby County (Agg 2-1)

Key man Cameron Jerome gave Derby a 1-0 first-leg lead

"If we go 1-0 down, we need them to keep screaming and shouting for us and get us through this leg".

The Rams frustrated their opponents during the first half, though, with Scott Carson superbly saving Mitrovic's close-range header and it was not until after the break Fulham made their dominance count.

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.

Carson, though, was finally breached just two minutes after the restart as Sessegnon struck.

Teenager Sessegnon first fired into the top corner from close range, before Odoi flicked in a header from a corner.

"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".

The Cottagers had the second-best attack in the league with 79 goals to their name and dabblebet have boosted Aleksandar Mitrovic to an industry-best price of 23/20 (2.15) to find the net in 90 minutes. Tonight, we gave everything but it just wasn't quite enough. But well done to the boys.

"We know that we put ourselves in a very hard position with our form after Christmas, but had got ourselves into a good position with our form earlier in the season", he added.

'(Scoring the first goal was) very special. It is unbelievable. I think we deserve to get promoted as we play good football and created chances. "I've got to hand it to Fulham but at the end of the day, they've outplayed us".
