Fulham 2-0 Derby County (Agg 2-1)

Fulham 2-0 Derby County (Agg 2-1)

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.

Away goals do not count in the play-offs, so if Fulham were able to earn a 1-0 win during the 90 minutes, extra-time and penalty shoot-out would follow.

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.

Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli, beaten by Jerome's strike in the 34th minute, believes his side will overcome the one-goal deficit and progress to the final.

The Cottagers showcased their attacking speed as they broke from a Derby corner with Aboubakar Kamara squaring for Sessegnon but the 17-year-old first touch was not great and his shot was too close to Scott Carson, who palmed behind for a corner.

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

Carson, though, could do nothing about Odoi's bullet header from Sessegnon's corner in the 66th minute, the Belgian defender rising above his marker to power it into the net. But for us, we've got to use that disappointment to look at things we need to do better.

"To get to half-time at 0-0, we felt that we had to step out a bit more and be more proactive".

"Many times we have been close to brilliant, tonight we were close to flawless".

"They were two very, very poor goals for us to give away". He plays football and enjoys every moment. It changed the game and really put the pressure on them, then we got the second and won the game'.

'I just get my head down and work hard for the team'.
