  • Fulham 2-0 Derby County (Agg 2-1)

Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham.

The Serbian global, whose price has been enhanced from 17/20 (1.85), joined Fulham on loan in February and netted 12 times in just 17 league outings - making him his side's second-top scorer behind Ryan Sessegnon.

Fulham ended their play-off hoodoo in style by coming from behind to beat Derby 2-0 and put themselves one win away from the Premier League.

Fulham will face either Aston Villa or Middlesbrough in the Championship playoff final on May 26.

Fulham attacked from the outset but Derby keeper Scott Carson frustrated them throughout the first half with a series of fine saves.

After a disappointing night at Pride Park on Friday, Fulham were desperate to wipe out their deficit as quickly as possible and they could not have wished for a better chance in only the eighth minute.

Lynchburg area at risk of severe storms; derecho a possibility
That's particularly for areas to the north and west of Long Island, said Carlie Buccola, weather service meteorologist in Upton. Today's forecast calls for cloudy skies with a high of 63 and rain, with a chance of thunderstorms and hail after 10 a.m.


The pressure finally paid off after 66 minutes when centre-back Odoi rose to brilliantly head Sessegnon's inswinging corner into the net.

Fulham head to Wembley for the first time since they lost the FA Cup final to West Ham in 1975.

There's a steely streak running through this Rams side, though, and we fancy them to do just about enough to get through to the big one.

'He has shown a great level of self-belief and confidence, he is a special man.

Derby manager Gary Rowett realised dramatic action was required if his side were to avoid remaining outwith the top flight for an 11th season and threw on two of his substitutes including Czech global striker Matej Vydra. If you keep giving the ball back to Fulham, they are very good at keeping it and I think they handled the leg much better than us in terms of their composure on the ball and their ability to move the ball around and be patient. I must be satisfied what my team showed tonight.
