Ful­ham back in Premier League

Fiji Sun - - SPORTS -

Lon­don: Scott Parker hailed Ful­ham’s drive and mentality in se­cur­ing an in­stant re­turn to the Premier League with a 2-1 ex­tra-time Cham­pi­onship play-off fi­nal win over ri­vals Brent­ford yes­ter­day. Joe Bryan scored twice in ex­tra-time be­fore the Bees pulled one back late on, but it was too late to stop Ful­ham’s pro­mo­tion. Parker in­her­ited a squad scarred by their tor­rid Premier League rel­e­ga­tion and has trans­formed them into a con­fi­dent, free-flow­ing side across the longest of Cham­pi­onship sea­sons. “We’ve done what we’ve done tonight, but there’s still im­prove­ment, and that’s what makes me so proud and happy,” Parker told Sky Sports.
