Aston Villa vs. Fulham - Football Match Report

But after Fulham's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Wembley he can grace the Premier League in a white Fulham shirt next season after all - thanks to the minimum 160 million pounds ($212.91 million) windfall the club can now look forward to.

Four minutes later, they were reduced to 10 men after Denis Odoi went in hard on Grealish, giving the man in the middle no choice but to show a second yellow card and subsequent red.

Jokanovic added: "If we make a mistake ourselves, it's going to be really complicated for us".

Asked whether he saw himself remaining at Craven Cottage next season, Mitrovic said: "I don't know".

Tom Cairney's 23rd-minute goal was the difference as Fulham capped a remarkable turnaround in the second half of their season to join Wolverhampton and Cardiff in the Premier League next season.

Scott Hogan also glanced a header wide of the far post and it proved to be Villa's last effort as Fulham secured a deserved return to the top flight after relegation to the Championship in 2014. Ryan Fredericks certainly seemed to let the occasion better of him when he stamped on Jack Grealish on the half-hour mark.

He has time to think about the gravity of his moment to shine on the Wembley stage, but held his nerve to slide the ball past Villa keeper Sam Johnstone to give this Play-Off final its opening goal.

Despite their superior experience, Aston Villa succumbed to defeat.

The Villans failed to turn up for much of the first half and found themselves behind when the midfield ace netted from Ryan Sessegnon's cross inside the first 25 minutes. Fulham won the game 1-0, and are promoted to the Premier League.

Loan deals are never ideal, permanent signings are what supporters want to see, but this is is a move that could be a benefit for both parties and something Steve Bruce should strongly consider.

"He had an option if we had have gone up but obviously we haven't got that option now". "But football won today", declared match victor Cairney.

"I was totally disappointed with the first half in a big game and big occasion".

As ever, the ramification from the Championship play-off final will rumble on for many years to come and for Fulham, the glory is all theirs.
