Fulham eased past Preston to seal their Premier League return as Aleksandar Mitrovic's double took his season's tally to 40 goals, after the Serbian striker netted twice in the first half.
The first of the 92 clubs to seal promotion, Fulham, faces second-placed Bournemouth this weekend, and though Bournemouth can’t confirm their promotion this weekend it seems that it will be only a matter of time for the Cherries, as they look to bounce back to the Premier League, after two seasons in the second tier. If Huddersfield were to defeat Barnsley they would also ensure themselves a play-off spot as they seek promotion back to the Premier League.
At the other end of the Championship, Derby County have already been relegated and it looks almost certain that Barnsley and Peterborough will join them. Derby were relegated from the Championship on Monday after suffering a dramatic late defeat at Queens Park Rangers. Luke Amos' 88th-minute winner for QPR, coupled with Reading's extraordinary 4-4 draw against Swansea, consigned Wayne Rooney's Rams to League One.
The fate of Peterborough and Barnsley is out of their hands, and a victory for Reading at Hull City will see the two teams return to the third-tier of English football, regardless of their own results. Even if Reading were not able to win, Barnsley would have to win away at third-place Huddersfield., and defeat for either team if Reading fails to win would also confirm their relegation.
