Fulham’s winning streak in the Championship came to a halt on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Brentford but the result was enough to all-but guarantee a top-six finish for the Craven Cottage outfit.
With Leeds United failing to beat Norwich City, a three-point gap between the teams and the London side having a much-superior goal difference, the Cottagers are set to contest a place in the Premier League through the play-offs.
Fulham have gone on an incredible run over the last couple of months to power their way into the reckoning, with an attractive, attacking brand of football being played in the process.
Manager Slavisa Jokanovic has worked wonders at the London club and was hailed on Twitter after the side’s place in the play-offs was close to being confirmed.
The Serbian coach has transformed Fulham’s fortunes since taking over in 2015 and he has given the club a chance to return to the Premier League ahead of next season.
While Reading, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday will also be vying for a place in the top flight, the Cottagers have hit good form at the right time.
Fulham fans are confident heading into the playoffs and are clearly behind Jokanovic – the best tweets are below:

I've never been as nervous for a match as I was today. Hasn't sunk in yet, 2 seasons of awful football and now this. Thanks @Jokanovic.

Great feat by @Jokanovic to all-but reach play-offs. All done without a striker and missing a bucket load of penalties. Impressive
