Fulham fans react to their Play-Off semi-final win over Derby County

Fulham fans react to their Play-Off semi-final win over Derby County

Having struggled to break down Derby in the first leg, Fulham demonstrated why they are unbeaten at home since October with a display full of flowing, attacking football.

Sessegnon scored the opener and delivered the corner for Denis Odoi's victor as Fulham overcame a 1-0 first leg deficit and earned themselves a first trip to Wembley in 43 years.

Second-half goals from teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon and Denis Odoi sealed a 2-0 win on the night and a 2-1 aggregate victory for the hosts who will face either Aston Villa or Middlesbrough - who play their second leg tonight - at Wembley later this month.

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

Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli, beaten by Jerome's strike in the 34th minute, believes his side will overcome the one-goal deficit and progress to the final.

'Hopefully we'll get to the Premier League'.

Carson, though, could do nothing about Odoi's bullet header from Sessegnon's corner in the 66th minute, the Belgian defender rising above his marker to power it 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.

Derby will now spend an 11th-successive season in the second tier despite reaching the play-offs in three of the past five campaigns. If you keep giving the ball back to Fulham, they are very good at keeping it and I think they handled the leg much better than us in terms of their composure on the ball and their ability to move the ball around and be patient.

When asked how he deals with being in the spotlight and the pressure that is put on him, he added: 'I just try to play my own game.

He said: 'The first leg we were defensively faultless, we were absolutely superb in defence. I must be satisfied what my team showed tonight.
