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

Cameron Jerome celebrates after giving Derby the lead in Friday's first leg

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.

In 2016-17, Reading defeated the west London side 2-1 on aggregate, but they are now one match away from a return to the Premier League for the first time since relegation in 2014.

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.

"Our disappointment is that we've got lots of players in there who've played in these types of games before, but yet in some ways, we've looked the more inexperienced team in the way we moved the ball".

'When the ball arrives at him in the box it normally finishes in the net.

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

Carson then had to be alert to tip Aboubakar Kamara's effort over the bar before the keeper produced an incredible point-blank save to keep out Mitrovic's close-range header.

Slavisa Jokanovic's side - beaten play-off semi-finalists last season - will play either Aston Villa or Middlesbrough in the final on Saturday, 26 May.

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. We always knew if we were to keep going we'd get the first goal and thankfully I did.

"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.

"A draw will take us through, but I don't think that you can play for a draw".
