Slavisa Jokanovic urges Fulham to maintain their standards at Wembley

Slavisa Jokanovic insisted Denis Odoi deserved to be Fulham's hero after the defender's header took them to a Wembley play-off final.

The Newcastle loan striker didn't get on the scoresheet but played a full part as Fulham won 2-0 at Craven Cottage to win their Championship play-off semi-final.

The Rams struggled to create opportunities on the night but they were comfortable in the first-half as they dealt with consistent Fulham attacks.

However, two minutes after the break, Fulham opened the scoring on the night and levelled the tie, Sessegnon getting the goal.

They will face the either Middlesbrough or Aston Villa, the latter of whom hold a 1-0 lead ahead of a home game in the second leg.

The Serbian worldwide, whose price has been enhanced from 17/20 (1.85), joined Fulham on loan in February and netted 12 times in just 17 league outings - making him his side's second-top scorer behind Ryan Sessegnon.

The defeat marked the second time in three seasons that the Rams have fallen at this stage and the former Birmingham and Burton manager said that his side's decision making was to blame.

The decisive goal came in the 66th minute when Belgian Odoi beat Carson with a brilliantly angled header from a corner.

"Will was there just because he's an ex-Derby player and obviously still loves the club".

"We have to assume that they will play with good composure and quality, and we made some really poor decisions during the game".

"We deserve this victory and a chance to reach the Premier League".

"They outplayed us in the second-leg and they more than deserve to go through".

On reflection, Rowett believes that this season has been one of moderate success, and he also praised the mental strength that his team showed to get themselves into the top-six. We always knew if we were to keep going we'd get the first goal and thankfully I did.
