Fulham are contemplating the amazing bonus of a "possible" European campaign next season as an incredible bonus to their last-day survival in the Barclays Premier League.

Danny Murphy´s 76th-minute header ensured Roy Hodgson´s side pipped Reading and Birmingham on goal difference even though those sides also won comfortably and now it emerges Fulham could be handed a place in the qualifying round for next season´s UEFA Cup as reward for their success in the European Fair Play League.

Manchester City looked set to claim a European spot as the ´fairest´ team not already qualified for Europe - until Richard Dunne was sent off at Middlesbrough on Sunday and Fulham´s communications officer Sarah Brooks said: "For now, we have enough to celebrate over staying up but this could be another bonus, although we can´t say more at this stage until all the documentation is in."
