Third-placed Fulham conceded a 94th-minute equaliser in a 1-1 home draw on Saturday to hand automatic promotion to Nuno Espirito Santo's men with four games to spare.

The Midlanders have led by example in the Championship this season despite irking rivals over their relationship with agent Jorge Mendes.

They were among the favourites to achieve promotion in 2018 having spent heavily, including signing Porto's Ruben Neves for £15.8 million.

"Congratulations to the best team but hope the league can be fair and equal to all 24 teams", protested Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani after his side were beaten 3-0 by Wolves last month.

But, in the fourth minute of stoppage-time, Brentford equalised through Neal Maupay to leave Fulham 10 points adrift of Wolves, with only three games to play.

Premier League clubs were quick to congratulate Wolves on their promotion success with Premier League champions-in-waiting Manchester City leading the way.

That win moved second bottom Burton to within five points off safety.
