After narrowly missing out on automatic promotion to the Premier League, Fulham will hope to return to the top flight through the Championship play-offs as they travel to Cardiff City in the first leg of their semi-final.
Following relegation a year ago, Scott Parker’s side missed out on an instant return to the top flight by just two points as they now look to gain a first leg advantage over Cardiff.
The Bluebirds’ run of three straight wins to round off the season ensured they saw off many challengers to reach the play-offs, and like the Cottagers are hoping to bounce back to the Premier League after dropping out last year.
