Fulham missed a chance to clinch the Championship title as Nottingham Forest beat the promoted leaders 1-0 on Tuesday.

Marco Silva’s side, who clinched promotion on April 19, had to better the result of second-placed Bournemouth to make sure of earning the trophy.

But Philip Zinckernagel’s strike sealed a crucial win for Forest, who survived a Fulham barrage of 20 shots at Craven Cottage.

 

Fulham are eight points clear of Bournemouth and have two games left to guarantee they seal the title.

Forest’s win moved them up to third and within three points of Bournemouth who host them in a potentially decisive promotion showdown on May 3.

Bournemouth had to stage an incredible late comeback from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at Swansea.
