  • English Championship Play-Off Report: Aston Villa v Fulham 26 May 2018

The Premier League is the most competitive league and we must be clever.

Fulham defender Denis Odoi's sending off brought a nervy ending to proceedings, but captain Tom Cairney's goal proved enough in a 1-0 win that will live long in the memory.

The 30-year-old is looking to leave the Hammers this summer, however, some fans do not want to see him at Villa Park on a permanent deal if his display was anything to go by.

Grealish fluffed his lines again early in the second half, heading over from a good position.

Villa also had a penalty appeal turned down but Grealish was lucky to escape a red card with a reckless tackle on Cairney.

Ryan Sessegnon set up the goal for Cairney with a pinpoint through-ball, continuing his influential role for Fulham this season and especially in the playoffs.

The deafening sound as Fulham celebrated promotion under the Wembley arch gave a whole new meaning to white noise, for Slavisa Jokanovic's slow-burning, swaggering side had finally got over the line.

Steve Bruce lost a Championship play-off final for the first time.

And when questioned about the team's inconsistency of late, Green replied: "You'd be a fool not to believe me". The thing about playing the Warriors is that you have to work incredibly hard to keep pace with their scoring.

The win, which sees the Cottagers return to the Premier League for the first time since the 2014/15 season, capped off what was an unbelievable turnaround for Slaviša Jokanović's side.

Villa missed a ideal opportunity to go level when a cross by Albert Adomah picked out Jack Grealish, who powered his effort over the bar on 51 minutes. "We will make sure next season we will do it for them".

While Brighton & Hove Albion, Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United did so by strengthening their squads in the transfer market, they still preserved a core group of players who had served them so well the previous season.

There was great work from teenager Ryan Sessegnon and the Englishman played a slide rule ball into the box for the on rushing Tom Cairney.

Fulham finished third in the Championship and Villa one spot below, so there's a feeling that the two clubs deserved to meet at Wembley Stadium.

Villa threw everything forward in the nail-biting closing stages but Fulham held on without too many alarms.

Grealish raced to head just over with the goal gaping before Hourihane's cross-shot threatened, but Fulham were looking unsafe on the break and Aleksandar Mitrovic nodded wide.

Despite the numerical advantage, Bruce's charges struggled to carve out chances as the second half drew to a close.
