Brownhill’s rocket sets Burnley on their way

Bobby Decordova-Reid scored for the second successive match as Fulham eased to a 2-0 success over Sheffield Wednesday at Craven Cottage to set up a repeat of last season’s Championship play-off final against Brentford.
After conceding seven goals in two Premier League games, manager Scott Parker was pleased with a defensive shutout. “It’s always key to build on clean sheets and get into the habit,” he said. “They’re going to be crucial for us this year.”
