Fulham promoted to Premier League after beating Aston Villa in Championship play-off final

Tom Cairney's first-half goal enough to secure victory as ten-man Fulham return to the top-flight four years after they were relegated

Fulham secured promotion back to the Premier League as they saw off Aston Villa to win the Championship play-off final.

Tom Cairney’s first-half goal was enough to see the London club make a return to the top flight four years after they were relegated.

And they had to do it the hard way after centre-back Denis Odoi was sent off for a nasty challenge on Villa’s Jack Grealish with 20 minutes left.
