Aston Villa vs. Fulham - Football Match Report

Ryan Sessegnon retrieved the ball before playing a perfectly-weighted pass through to Cairney, whose calm finish from 10 yards went past Johnstone and into the bottom corner.

A 17th place finish the following season was followed by 20th place in 2015/16, and after missing out on promotion past year in the play-offs having ended in sixth, Slavisa Jokanovic's side finished the recently completed season in third before overcoming Derby County and now Steve Bruce's Villa.

Aston Villa created most of the chances in the second half after Fulham's Denis Odoi was sent off in the 70th minute.

Yet Fulham showed grit to match their skill to win and leave Villa, on the 36th anniversary of their European Cup triumph, facing another season in the Championship - and the financial ramifications that brings.

Expect some great things from this 18-year old.

For the Serbian Jokanović, after guiding Watford to promotion in 2014/15, this will be his first taste of the Championship playoff final. But let's not forget we are Aston Villa, a proud club, a big club.

Bruce insisted Villa remain in a position to recover from their disappointment and again challenge for promotion next season, despite what threatens to be a hard summer. The Premier League is the most competitive league and we must be clever.

After the break, Fulham continued where they left off and Stefan Johansen got on the ball on the edge of the area but fired wide.

However, subsequent replays showed that there was far more to the incident than first met the eye.

"But today we smashed the second match point".

The winger is an elegant and languid play maker in the mould of Jack Grealish, and the combination of the two could get fans very excited for next season. "We will see what happens". Terry would have thought it was nailed on he took Villa up and he could probably have another season in the Premier League but it didn't work out and Villa will be seriously pushing their luck paying his wages for another season.

And Grealish himself was fortunate not to see red, letting his frustration get the better of him, sliding in recklessly on Cairney with referee Anthony Taylor only brandishing a yellow card.
