Fulham have been promoted to the English Premier League after beating Preston North End 3-0 at the Craven Cottage.

The Cottagers will be playing Premier League football next season as victory on Tuesday night was enough to seal promotion for Marco Silva’s men.

It has been an incredible season for Fulham and especially for their talismanic Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrović who is currently the Championship top scorer.

On the night his team secured passage to the topflight, he scored a first-half brace, opening the scoring nine minutes into the game before Fabio Carvalho doubled their lead in the 34th minute.

Mitrović completed his brace in the 41st minute, giving the Lilywhites an uphill task to get anything out of the game.

Marco Silva has proven to be a very astute and brilliant manager as he led and guided Fulham’s dominance in the Championship throughout the season. The team has long been touted to emerge eventual champions of the division.

There were scenes of jubilation across the stadium at the blast of the final whistle with the home fans celebrating the feat with huge excitement.

They have earned promotion within a year of being relegated from the Premier League and the latest achievement also means this is the third time in five years the London-based club have been elevated to the topflight.

27-year-old Mitrović has already scored 40 goals for Fulham this season, shattering the previous record for highest number of Championship goals, set by Brentford’s Ivan Toney who netted 31 times.
