Fulham withstood a gutsy fightback from Cardiff to reach the Championship play-off final despite losing the second leg.
Cardiff won 2-1 on the night at Craven Cottage courtesy of goals from Curtis Nelson and Lee Tomlin, as Neeskens Kebano levelled for Fulham moments after Nelson’s headed opener.
But despite a nervy second half following Tomlin’s volley, the Cottagers’ 2-0 first-leg lead helped them progress 3-2 on aggregate to a Wembley final against Brentford.
It keeps Fulham’s chances of an immediate return to the Premier League alive while Cardiff’s attempt to secure promotion back at the first attempt are over.
