The art of tackling goes out the window in the Championship play-off final

Both sides were guilty of some shocking challenges as Fulham won promotion back to the Premier League

For the ‘richest game in world football’ it certainly wasn’t glamorous at times.

Referee Anthony Taylor was kept busy during the 90 minutes, with late challenges the order of the day in the Championship play-off final between Aston Villa and Fulham at Wembley.

You can’t blame the players for being a bit tense, however some of them completely lost their heads on their biggest day of the season.

Ryan Fredericks was the first culprit of a shocking challenge on the day.

The full-back somehow stayed on the pitch after the incident, which happened right in-front of Bruce and the fourth official.

Grealish was himself then fortunate to stay on the pitch.

Midway through the second half, the Villa man had a moment of madness and launched in late of Fulham Captain Tom Cairney.

Fulham’s Dennis Odoi was shown his second yellow card of the game late in the second half.

The Fulham man clattered into Grealish and was rightfully given his marching orders by Taylor.

Yer Da loves a “propa tackle” though.
