Fulham back in Premier League after playoff win over Brentford

Fulham have been promoted to the Premier League after beating Brentford 2-1 after extra-time in the Championship play-off final at Wembley

Fulham returned to the Premier League a year after relegation as two extra-time goals from full-back Joe Bryan gave them a 2-1 win over Brentford in the Championship playoff final at Wembley on Tuesday.

Bryan spotted out-of-position Brentford goalkeeper David Raya, who was anticipating a cross from his deep free-kick, and cleverly drove the ball into the bottom corner before making sure of the win with a second goal three minutes from the end of the second period of extra time.

Henrik Dalsgaard pulled one back for Brentford in the final seconds.
