Preston’s winners on Tuesday night in the Championship (3-0), Fulham ensured their return to the Premier League. And Alexander Mitrovic nevertheless scored twice.
Four days before the end of the season, Fulham have (already) validated their ticket to the Premier League, defeating Preston at Craven’s Cottage (3-0) on Tuesday. The cottagers, who entered the championship last year, will therefore once again make a lift. But they are used to it as they are changing divisions for the fifth season in a row…! They were already promoted in 2018 and 2020 before moving to the second division in 2019 and 2021.
Thanks to their win against Preston, Marco Silva’s men will not need to go through the accession playoffs like they did two years ago. This time he flew to the championship.
40 goals in 40 games for Mitrovic
On Tuesday evening, Fulham was once again able to count on Alexander Mitrovic. The Serb scored twice, his 8th of the season (plus three hat-tricks). Thus the striker brings his total goals in 40 games to 40. A record in the division. Fulham’s third goal was scored by Fabio Carvalho (34th).
And the victory clearly added to the delight of the supporters, who attacked the field on the final whistle.
