IMMEDIATE RETURN! Fulham have earned a promotion back to the Premier League following a comfortable 3-0 victory over Preston on Tuesday night.
Fulham could have returned to the Premier League on GoodFriday but suffered a 2-1 to Derby, the first time they had suffered back-to-back defeats this season. However, they bounced back at Craven Cottage and took the lead with their first real chance of the game as Mitrovic slotted home.
Carvalho grabbed the second for Fulham before Mitrovic scored his second and third for the hosts.
The Serbian forward had already cruised past Ivan Toney’s Championship scoring record with 14 games remaining in the season and now sits just two behind Guy Whittingham’s 42-goal haul from a 46-game second-tier season for Portsmouth in 1992-93.
