Soccer – Bruce knows what to expect from Fulham

Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce is looking forward to playing against a 'very good' Fulham side in the Championship play-off final at Wembley. Villa edged to a 1-0 aggregate victory against Middlesbrough in the semi-finals and are attempting to return to the Premier League after a two-season absence. The Cottagers, who knocked Derby County out on Monday, finished third in the Championship table, five points clear of fourth-placed Villa. Bruce said "We kept two clean sheets and deserve to go through for that reason. To overcome Middlesbrough has taken some doing. Let's see if we can go one further again. "Fulham are a very good side though. We know what to expect." Aston Villa can be backed at 6/5 with bet365 to be promoted while Fulham are 8/13 to go up.
