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.

Ruben Neves' outrageous goal against Derby County has Wolverhampton Wanderers a step closer to title glory, while Millwall are now into the play-off spots following a 2-0 triumph over Bolton Wanderers.

However, Wolves' big spending has provoked complaints for other sides in the league.


On the field Wolves have proved unstoppable as they amassed a huge lead at the top of the table on the back of losing just three of their opening 27 games of the campaign.

Nuno will clinch promotion on Sunday if Wolves beat Birmingham at Molineux, but the Portuguese is refusing to abandon his hardline stance.

It seemed like Fulham had performed sufficient after they went forward via Aleksandar Mitrovic however Brentford pushed and pushed and levelled within the 94th minute via Neal Maupay - a lot to the disbelief of the house followers.

However, Derby's playoff push suffered another setback when they were beaten 3-1 at relegation threatened Burton.
