Fulham have gained promotion into the Premier League ahead of the 2020/2021 season. In an interesting encounter with Brentford, Fulham are the more experienced side of the two.

The first-half of the game never had magical spark. The return of the second-half see either side pressing for victory with both sides creating incredible display.

Brentford proceeded to attack with everything they had, desperate to return to England’s top flight for the first time since 1947. In the 70th minute that Brentford’s star striker Ollie Watkins had his rising 20-yard effort tipped over the bar by Rodak.

The two teams proved inseparable, even when the match was forced to a 30 miniutes extra-time with scoreline at 1-1.

The moment of magic which prevented penalty shoot out came, and that’s exactly what happened when  Bryan proved talent once again, burst forward from defence, played an exquisite one-two with substitute Mitrovic before sliding past Raya from six yards out to make it 2-1 Fulham’s victory.

The result now completes the final number of promoted teams to the Premier League – Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham. The 2020/2021 Premier League seanson is expected to kick start in September.
