It didn't affect Fulham's search for a second, though, and Cairney did brilliantly to find Mitrovic inside the box, but his volley took a slight clip off a Villa defender before going over the top in the 74th minute.

Fulham are back in the Premier League after defeating Aston Villa in today's Championship play-off final at Wembley.

Oliver Norwood hailed Fulham's incredible achievement after they secured Premier League promotion against Aston Villa.

It is understood, as is the case for most teams chasing promotion, that Villa had drawn up two lists of potential targets depending on where they would be playing next season.

Steve Bruce's side were much improved in the second period, with Grealish heading over from close-range.

It is expected, however, that both will leave Wednesday when their deals run out.

In the end, the London outfit managed to see out the rest of the clash to secure their spot in the Premier League. We just needed a break, but we didn't get one.

Sacramento Moves Up in NBA Lottery, Will Pick Second in Draft
The Suns have been in the NBA Draft Lottery the past eight years, as the team hasn't made the playoffs since the 2009-10 season. It's a deep draft", Kings vice president and general manager Vlade Divac said.

Slavisa Jokanovic believed Fulham's promotion to the Premier League was a culmination of a great season long campaign.

The West Londoners could have added a second through Sessegnon - who headed straight at Johnstone from eight yards out - but Villa should have been level with five minutes of the first half remaining when Grealish volleyed over from 10 yards after a clever free kick from Robert Snodgrass.

Jack Grealish suddenly got involved in the game and he forced a save from goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli after a superb slaloming dribble through the Fulham defence. We've worked tirelessly and changed the squad round hugely and thankfully with winning a few games it's certainly starting to mend with the supporters.

"We knew we wouldn't shrink in this environment", Cairney said to Sky Sports.

Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon, meanwhile, said: "It's been a fantastic season for me and the team".

Fulham's Denis Odoi is shown a red card by referee Anthony Taylor after fouling Aston Villa's Jack Grealish. "We must adapt ourselves; we know what is ahead of us".

The United States, China, Japan or perhaps a player-manager role is a likely move for the 37-year-old if he decides to dig out his boots again rather than a clipboard. I'm so exhausted right now I don't feel my legs "We are really happy and proud".
