Fulham won promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs last season.

Middlesbrough could still finish in the top six if they beat Rotherham in the final Championship game of the season on Sunday.

Tony Pulis' side would also need Derby to drop points against West Brom, while Bristol City also have an outside chance of clinching sixth spot.

Leeds United, West Brom and Aston Villa have already secured their places in the end of season fixtures.
