 ON THE RISE Slavisa Jokanovic and Aleksandar Mitrovic

Villa lost the Championship Play-Off Final to Fulham at Wembley on Saturday, meaning they will spend a third year in the second tier, despite spending a sizable amount of money attempting to reach the top flight again.

The decisive blow came midway through the first half as Fulham offered a glimpse of the football that has earned so many plaudits this term, with 18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon superbly threading through Cairney to fire home. We've worked tirelessly and changed the squad round hugely and thankfully with winning a few games it's certainly starting to mend with the supporters.

Gareth Southgate might rue the decision to not take him to Russian Federation given the ease with which he dealt with the occasion. Promotion is vindication for the glorious front-foot manner in which Fulham have flummoxed countless teams this season.

According to the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are looking to sign Moussa Marega after the Porto striker's asking price was dropped to £26 million.

With Fulham getting promoted to the Premier League, it would be hard for Tottenham or Manchester United to secure the services of Sessegnon this summer.

Just moments later the former Ireland under 21 player was lucky to stay on the pitch himself.

This was no coincidental collision, Fredericks knew exactly what he was doing and a red card should have been given.

Statistically Speaking: Stars lift Lightning in must-win game
Both teams entered the game red-hot on the power play, and the Lightning's risky extra-man unit continued its terrorizing ways. Barry Trotz after Game 3. "All of a sudden, you're seeing outnumbered situations", said Daneyko, now an NHL Network analyst.

Teen sensation Sessegnon showed awareness and a maturity that belied his years to thread through Cairney, whose low first-time finish beat Sam Johnstone.

The Villans were a much better side in the early stages of the second stanza, showing a sense of urgency as they pushed for an equaliser.

Odoi's challenge on him in the second half resulted in a second yellow. "To top it off with promotion, there's nothing better".

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.

It was that record that probably persuaded Dr Tony Xia, Villa's chairman, to appoint Bruce in the first place and while he has done a good job with Villa, a fifth promotion proved elusive.

The riches of the Premier League, which will be at least £160m, are theirs to savour, and their concerns over keeping this side together next season will have been washed away, at least temporarily, by the champagne that flowed last night.
