Fulham back in Premier League
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.
