Draw Can Take Derby Past Fulham And On To Wembley

Draw Can Take Derby Past Fulham And On To Wembley

They meet at Villa Park on Tuesday night and Villa lead 1-0 from the first leg.

Ojo has been sidelined for the last six games because of an unspecified injury and failed to make Slavisa Jokanovic's squad for Friday night's 1-0 first-leg defeat.

Carson then had to be alert to tip Aboubakar Kamara's effort over the bar before the keeper produced an incredible point-blank save to keep out Mitrovic's close-range header.

Sessegnon scored the opener and delivered the corner for Denis Odoi's victor as Fulham overcame a 1-0 first leg deficit and earned themselves a first trip to Wembley in 43 years.

"If we look at the season as a whole, in some ways, numerous things that have disappointed us in the season have just cost us tonight".

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

Mourinho expects Carrick to be future Man United assistant boss
The club captain will become an important figure in the coaching staff, and thanked the manager for the chance to become that. It is an unbelievable opportunity for me.

A stunning save from Scott Carson to deny Aleksandar Mitrovic kept the score at 0-0 at the interval, but Sessegnon punished a rare piece of slack defending two minutes into the second half, collecting a loose ball in the box and rifling high into the net.

They conceded after just 10 minutes - to Mitrovic, no less - when the sides met in March and after half an hour in the league match at Craven Cottage in November, meaning Fulham will be confident of their main striker finding the net.

"They were two very, very poor goals for us to give away".

There's a steely streak running through this Rams side, though, and we fancy them to do just about enough to get through to the big one.

And the Fulham boss said: "I'm not Santa Claus, I am a football coach, and I don't give any of my players presents". I must be satisfied what my team showed tonight.

"Last season at Reading, the fans were brilliant cheering us on, so we'll need the same".
