Fulham Edge Out Terry’s Villa To Gain EPL Promotion

  • Fulham Edge Out Terry’s Villa To Gain EPL Promotion

Fulham were favourites with the bookmakers - and perhaps the neutrals - on their first trip to Wembley since 1975, and emerged 1-0 winners against Steve Bruce's Aston Villa after clinging onto Cairney's first-half strike. We deserved it. It's not easy to play at Wembley, there is a lot of pressure. "But now, I do believe they have enjoyed seeing what we have got at the moment".

"In general, we must try to dominate the teams we believe we can dominate against".

The Craven Cottage side managed to keep Villa at bay with Robert Snodgrass' free-kick from the edge of the area the best chance for Bruce's side but it sailed wide of the post.

"We must be fearless and strong to build something a little bit different". Promotion to the Premier League is estimated to be worth an additional £160million, spread over three years, which obviously would make a significant difference to either team.

This fearless, rip-roaring Fulham team, along with the champions Wolverhampton Wanderers, will reinvigorate a Premier League that has grown a little exhausted and musty.

But he added: "We must adapt ourselves".

"If we bottled it and tried to play a different way we would have lost the game".

There was only misery for Villa as they missed out on promotion on the 36th anniversary of the club's famous European Cup final victory over Bayern Munich.




"Yeah, I can understand what he's saying", Davies said. In the end, Fulham came out victorious with a 1-0 win thanks to Tom Cairney's goal in the first half.

"It certainly wasn't there when I arrived 19 months ago". If he'd scored, I'm sure we would have gone on to win the match.

Owls boss Jos Luhukay had earlier stated that it was up to Clare and fellow under 23s player George Hirst, who is also out of contract, whether they wanted to stay.

Villa looked set to turn the screw when Odoi was given a second yellow after a rash challenge on Grealish during a feisty period. He was tricked by Grealish and could only clumsily bring the 22 year old down.

"I don't think we did enough. Getting sent off sucked".

Steve Bruce's Villa side were active throughout but failed to truly threaten a side which finished one place and five points above them in the final Championship table. The last 20 minutes [with 10 men] all we were thinking about was not conceding.

"All together the quality, team spirit and everything came at the right time and that is why we won".

"We went into the second half and said it would be tough as Villa would throw the whole kitchen sink at us", said the 26-year-old. But then, the Fulham defender stamped on his opponent's knee which went unseen by the referee, who would have given a red card had he seen it. Financial muscle is supposed to dictate the order of things these days, but Fulham now join Bournemouth and Huddersfield as gatecrashers in the promised land of the Premier League and only the most ardent of Villa fans could argue.
