Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is proud of the way he has helped revitalise the club both on and off the pitch and hopes to complete the turnaround with promotion back to the Premier League.

Slavisa Jokanovic will manage Fulham for their first Premier League season since 2013-14. One of the founding members of the rebranded Premier League in 1992, Villa were relegated in 2016.

Fredericks, who says his future is "up to people behind the scenes", added: "We were saying before the game that we only knew how to play one way". We must show ambition to be a Premier League team, show ambition with (transfer) money too.

"We had another mountain to climb when Denis got sent off but we have had loads of those this season".

The 37-year-old chose to move to the Midlands outfit at the beginning of this term over other top-flight suitors to rule out any chance of coming up against his beloved Blues - where he spent 19 seasons.

This is Fulham's first ever play-off final after only ever being eliminated in the semi-finals in 1988-89, 1997-98 and 2016-17. Despite getting hit repeatedly by the flag being waved by the guy in front of me, the atmosphere is electric and the energy of fans is incredible.

"It's about taking these friendlies as seriously as we can and making sure we have a point to prove, that we feel we should be there".

Cairney struck after 23 minutes, clinically slotting the ball home from an inch ideal pass by Ryan Sessegnon at the end of a rare flowing move in a cagey first half.
