Derby County 1-0 Fulham

Cameron Jerome's goal was his fifth in four games for Derby CountyCameron Jerome scored his fifth goal in four games as Derby County gained the advantage in an intriguing Championship play-off semi-final against Fulham.Jerome powered home a delightful header from Craig Forsyth's cross following a slick first-half move.Fulham bossed possession throughout, but only managed two shots on target.
Kevin McDonald came closest to a leveller with a sumptuous first-time shot that hit the bar, but the Rams lead going into Monday's second leg.
Relive Derby's first-leg victory over Fulham
A bright start by the Londoners, with midfielders Tom Cairney and Stefan Johansen prominent, set the tone for the first leg and suggested their final-day failure to clinch automatic promotion was not affecting them.Derby seemed intent on keeping the early tempo high but struggled to get near the visitors, who had been unbeaten in 23 games before losing to Birmingham on Sunday and therefore missing out on a top-two spot.The Rams soon settled, with the pace of winger Tom Lawrence, the power of striker Jerome and the movement of recalled 21-goal top-scorer Matej Vydra posing the greater goal threat.First-half chances for either side were rare, but Derby led when Jerome rounded off an excellent move which saw Tom Huddlestone pick out Forsyth and the left-back send in the most inviting of crosses.Fulham, who finished 13 points above the Rams in the final Championship table, had 70% possession in the first half but, like their hosts, only managed one effort on target.Midfielder McDonald was desperately unlucky not to find the net from 20 yards after the resumption, while Floyd Ayite missed a glorious chance moments later when he volleyed over from Johansen's astute pass.Cairney also went close with a fizzing shot that was well saved by Rams goalkeeper Scott Carson and a curled 20-yard strike that flew a fraction wide, while the excellent Lawrence came close to setting up a second for Derby on the break on several occasions.Middlesbrough play Aston Villa in the second semi-final first leg on Saturday at 17:15 BST, with the winners of both ties meeting in the final at Wembley on Saturday, 26 May.
