Fulham have gained promotion back to the Premier League, a year after they were relegated, after defeating Brentford 2-1 in the playoffs on Tuesday.
Full back Joe Bryan scored both goals in the extra time of the fixture to end Brentford’s hopes of marking their move to a new home with a return to the top flight.
There was one late attempt from Brentford to rescue the game and a goal from Henrik Dalsgaard that came too late to change the course of the match.
Bryan caught Bees goalkeeper, David Raya off guard from 40 yards in the 105th minute of the game at Wembley, with the Spaniard expecting a cross and then unable to scamper back and save Bryan’s skidding low effort.
With the Bees pouring forward in search of an equaliser, Bryan burst forward and combined with Aleksandar Mitrovic before stabbing past Raya to make the game safe with three minutes remaining.
Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back with a header from eight yards out in the fourth minute of added time, but it was too late for the Bees to spark a comeback.
