Fulham, owned by Jaguars Shad Khan, promoted to Premier League

The Cottagers had to play the final 20 minutes with 10 men following Denis Odoi's red card but they held on.

Khan purchased Fulham in 2013 while the club was still in the Premier League, but the London-based Cottagers were relegated to the second-tier League Championship the following season after 13 years at the top level.

The 18-year-old has been in fine form in the Championship this season, scoring 16 and recording eight assists including setting up Cairney's goal against Villa.

Unfortunately for the midfielder, and Villa, he was unable to do so having been so tightly, and sometimes illegally, marked throughout the game.

The 33-year-old, who scored all three goals in the Socceroos' World Cup play-off win over Honduras in November, did not speak with media after the match and is now due to link up with Bert van Marwijk's national side in Turkey. But let's not forget we are Aston Villa, a proud club, a big club.

Sessegnon and Tom Cairney, who scored the victor, will still be targeted over the coming months but Fulham, and billionaire owner Shahid Khan, have the financial muscle to resist overtures for a player many felt deserved an England World Cup call-up.


"I don't know that you can describe what the feeling is right now and the emotions, and the release of everything that's gone on this season, in the second half of the season", Ream told Sky Sports. We need to be fearless, we need to make investment, we need to spend money to survive or to make a more important step. "But football won today", declared match victor Cairney.

And now, Sessegnon will be playing Premier League football come August, with Fulham fans undoubtedly hoping it will be with them.

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

It sparked a melee between players on both sides and like Fredericks, Grealish was lucky to stay on the pitch. "I am aching inside", he said afterwards.

Villa had its best chance of the opening stanza with five minutes to go from a set piece, but Grealish's close-range shot was blasted well off target.

"This is a really important victory for us".
