Fulham clinch Championship title as Mitro breaks scoring record

Fulham clinched the Sky Bet Championship in style, thrashing Luton Town 7-0 at Craven Cottage as Aleksandar Mitrovic broke yet another record.

The Serbian striker broke Guy Whittingham's second-tier record of 42 goals in a single campaign with his two second-half strikes taking him onto 43 for the season with a game to play.

The stunning result in Fulham's final home game of the season saw them lift the trophy in front of their own fans as they prepare for another season back in the Premier League.

After slipping up against Nottingham Forest in midweek, Fulham knew a win would see them secure the title. Luton themselves were not looking to be there to make up the numbers though, with a top-six finish in their sights with three points.

And although it was set to be an even affair in the first half an hour - both goalkeepers forced into early saves - once Fulham scored, they did not look back.
