Fulham hosted Preston at home in the 43rd round of the EFL Championship (second-highest division in England) and took a crushing 3-0 victory.
Thanks to this result, the Cottagers secured a place in the elite division of the English Premier League next season. Fulham currently has 86 points after 42 games. Bournemouth, the closest pursuer, has 77 points. With four more games for the Cottagers, they will finish in the second place at least, which means a direct ticket to EPL.
It should be noted that Norwich, Watford and Burnley are still in the EPL relegation zone. In the EFL, the fight for another two tickets to the highest division will be among Bournemouth, Luton, Nottingham, Huddersfield, and Sheffield United.
