Sessegnon inspires Fulham to play-off final

It won't be easy, and we could envisage them needing to grind out a nervy draw and rely on some more penalty box defending late on, as they did in the first leg, if they're to get it done.

Odoi headed home only his fifth goal for the club as they beat Derby 2-0 in the second leg to book a clash with either Aston Villa or Middlesbrough on May 26 for a place in the Premier League.

The Serbian global, whose price has been enhanced from 17/20 (1.85), joined Fulham on loan in February and netted 12 times in just 17 league outings - making him his side's second-top scorer behind Ryan Sessegnon.

Defeat condemns Derby to a third play-off semi-final defeat in five years and an 11th successive campaign in the second tier.

Sessegnon - who many are urging England manager Gareth Southgate to take to the World Cup finals this June - seized on Stefan Johansen's chest-down to fire the ball into the net past Scott Carson.

But Slavisa Jokanovic's side finally got reward for the efforts two minutes after the interval when 17-year-old Sessegnon showed great composure to drive home a left-foot shot from inside the area.

Aleksandar Mitrovic and Aboubakar Kamara had chances to add further goals, as the Rams created little.

"Odoi is unmarked, so it's incredibly disappointing and it means that we haven't done our jobs properly".

"They were two very, very poor goals for us to give away".

That's good enough for us, then, and we'll make that our sole position tonight and hope things stay tight at the Cottage on a balmy night in London. We always knew if we were to keep going we'd get the first goal and thankfully I did.

He said: 'The first leg we were defensively faultless, we were absolutely superb in defence. "We didn't do the same in the second leg but did but I think our composure let us down tonight".
