Aleksandar Mitrovic is on his way to Wembley
Aleksandar Mitrovic will be lining up at Wembley later this month.
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.
Trailing 1-0 to Derby County from the first leg, Aleksandar Mitrovic was unlucky to see a first half header brilliantly saved by Scott Carson.
However, two minutes after the break, Fulham opened the scoring on the night and levelled the tie, Sessegnon getting the goal.
Denis Odoi then scored the crucial winning goal on 66 minutes when heading home from a corner.

Fulham completely dominated and by the end of the game it was 10 v 1 when it came to efforts on target.
Mitro coming close to adding a third in the later stages.
The two goals were enough though and Fulham will play either Aston Villa or Middlesbrough for a place in the Premier League next season.
They meet at Villa Park on Tuesday night and Villa lead 1-0 from the first leg.
A bit of a football fest on Saturday 26 May.
The Championship play-off final kicks off at 5pm at Wembley and then 7.45pm, the Champions League final kicks off in Kiev, between Real Madrid and Liverpool. If the play-off final goes to extra-time then it will almost be clashing with that game in the Ukraine.
Good luck to Aleksandar Mitrovic and Fulham in that play-off final, not difficult to favour them anyway when the alternative is Villa or Middlesbrough.
