Fulham are back in the Premier League

    Fulham overcame Brentford with two extra-time goals to return to the promised land of the Premier League.

    Few would have picked Brentford at the start of the season to be challenging for a place in the 2020/21 Premier League.

    However, the Championship minnows made it to the play-off finals where they faced one-time Premier League side Fulham.

    It was a game that saw both sides try to grab the win, but also airing slight caution. After all, this is billed as the most valuable game in football. Promotion can be worth upto £170M to the winning side.

    After the regular 90 minutes were up, the sides were locked in a tight battle and the score nil-nil.

    As the 30 minute period of extra time began it was clear, the side who could keep up the pressure and had the most energy would steel victory.

    It was in the final minutes of the first half of extra time that some quick thinking from Joe Bryan saw Fulham able to capitalize.

    Bryan was taking a free-kick when he noticed Brentford keeper David Raya in a precarious position. Rather than float in a cross, he whipped in a shot that bounced and saw Raya caught out and left devastated.

    From that point on it was really Fulham’s to lose as their opponent came out in search of an equalizer. That created space for the Cottagers to double the lead. 

    They did just that when defender Bryan had the legs to maraud forward to get his brace and all but guarantee promotion with just minutes left on the clock.

    Henrik Dalsgaard grabbed nothing more than a consolation for Brentford in the third minute of extra times injury time. 

    Although it must have had Fulham keeper Marek Rodak try to grapple with the Brentford players to stop them rushing back to the center circle with the ball for a quick kick-off.

    Regardless,  Fulham is celebrating and a Premier League side once again!
