Fulham secure promotion back to Premier League with Preston North End win

Baku, April 20, AZERTAC

Fulham have secured an immediate return back to the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over Preston North End on Tuesday night, according to Sports Mole.

After suffering successive defeats to Coventry City and Derby County, the Cottagers have been left to look over their shoulder in the race for the Championship title.

However, Marco Silva's side have made sure of a bounce-back promotion to the top flight with a routine 3-0 win against Preston, with all three strikes coming in the opening 41 minutes.

Aleksandar Mitrovic netted twice, taking his tally for the Championship this season to 40 goals, and the Serbian's double came either side of Fabio Carvalho getting on the scoresheet.

Fulham now hold a nine-point advantage over second-placed Bournemouth in the title race, although the Cherries do possess a game in hand.

Despite everything seemingly being in Fulham's favour, the two teams are due to lock horns on the South coast on Saturday, a win for Fulham all but sealing the second-tier crown.
