Second Leg Playoff from the Madejski Stadium

Second Leg Playoff from the Madejski Stadium

Leeds United fans made a decision to rub salt into the wound after Fulham were beaten by Reading in the Championship playoff semi-finals.

Reading edged into the Championship playoff final with a narrow 1-0 home win against Fulham on Tuesday, moving through 2-1 on aggregate.

Either Jaap Stam's side, Sheffield Wednesday or Huddersfield Town will join Newcastle United and Brighton in the Premier League.

These two sides played out an entertaining match on the weekend at Craven Cottage, with Reading taking an early advantage in the second half with a Jordan Obita strike, with Fulham equalizing with a Tom Cairney header.

The veteran French forward took a more conventional route on this occasion and Marcus Bettinelli could only palm his well-struck 49th-minute effort into the corner after Tomas Kalas' handball.

And somehow Reading failed to add a second when Chris Gunter crossed and John Swift shot straight at Bettinelli from just three yards out, when it seemed easier to score.

Fermanagh murder: Concepta Leonard was 'devoted' mother and musician
Her father is Dinny Leonard, a well-known musician and tutor. "They're just the most wonderful family". A woman (51) and a man (55) were found dead at a house yesterday (Monday) in the Abbey Road area.

And afterwards Royals boss Stam said: "We trained on penalties yesterday and Yann was the only one who scored!" So he had to do it today.

"We're going to rest and make analysis about what I believe is progress we made in this season".

Yann Kermorgant's second-half penalty took the Royals to Wembley and crushed Fulham's hopes of a return to the top flight.

"We needed to defend, we needed to dig in and we got that win which is very important".

Cotterill said: 'It was a very hard decision but was exclusively based on being a No.2, whereas I have been a manager for a long time in my own right'.

For Fulham that also means a fight to keep hold of their best players.

SNP win the Scottish council elections
Despite topping the poll, the party lost overall control of Dundee and Angus councils, which it had before the election. It is pretty clear that Theresa May , on the strength of support in England, is going to win the general election.

Reading fans celebrate reaching the Sky Bet Championship Play Off final.

"We didn't put the ball in the net and we paid an expensive price".

"We lost a key player in Macca, that can happen, but the squad has been fantastic all season and we will manage to play well without him".

"It's great to be back at Wembley, I've been in my playing career so as a manager, with a lot at stake, it's going to be nice".

Stam admitted he feels the tension of a semi-final as a manager far more than he ever did as a player.
