Fulham ended their play-offs hoodoo in style by coming from behind in the tie to beat Derby 2-0 on Monday night and put themselves one win away from the Premier League.

Second-half goals from Ryan Sessegnon and Denis Odoi overturned a one-goal deficit from the first leg at Craven Cottage, sending them to Wembley.

Sessegnon, tipped for a potential summer move to a big club, will take the headlines but it was an all-out attacking display from Slavisa Jokanovic's men, who were worthy winners.

Derby led 1-0 after the first leg, but will remain in the Championship after falling short at Craven Cottage.
