Fulham have managed to get their Championship promotion bid back on track over the last week following back-to-back victories over Swansea and Preston at Craven Cottage.
Scott Parker certainly needed a big week from his Cottagers side following a string of underwhelming results which saw them collect two points from three games, and Fulham bounced back as they saw off two play-off contenders in west London.
However, Fulham still find themselves sitting five points adrift of the automatic-promotion spots following the impressive recent form of second-placed Leeds, with Parker’s men now having just 10 matches to close this gap during the league’s final run-in.
Leeds’ strong four-game winning run means that a play-off spot seems the most likely outcome for the Cottagers at present, and Parker would be hoping his side can cling on to third spot in the table in order to face the sixth-placed side in the semi-final.
There are sure to be many more twists and turns in the play-off race before the end of the campaign, but if the table remained the same between now and the end of the season, Fulham would face Preston in the semi-final while the other clash would see Nottingham Forest take on Brentford.
This possible scenario could then lead to Fulham taking on west London rivals Brentford in the Championship play-off final if both sides come through their semi-final ties, with this being a potentially mouthwatering tie to decide who reaches the top flight.

Here are some of the responses…
Chris Baugh: Apart from the fact I think they would beat us 😭😭 Can you imagine anything worse?
Thomas Young: Have a feeling they would beat us though.
Miriam Busani: Don’t go there. I would not cope!
Scott Trotman: Would much rather knock them out at Griffin Park…give them a leaving present that can’t be taken away.
Peter Thomas: Let’s not jump ahead, still a way to go yet.
Jimmy Towner: Current form would suggest they will drop short.
Samuel Attard: Last ever game at Griffin Park and we beat them in the play off semi-final would be a dream.
