Fulham have won admirers for their style of play over the past two seasons, and 49-year-old Jokanovic has become the first manager from outside the British Isles to win two promotions to the Premier League, adding to his success with Watford in 2014-15.
However, this is Aston Villa's first ever play-off campaign after they were relegated from the Premier League in 2015-16, on the back of 28 years of top flight football.
However, if the Midlands outfit were to secure promotion on Saturday they would need further additions to adequately equip themselves for the gruelling nature of the Premier League.
That figure rises to £280m if the winners survive just one season in the Premier League, according to BBC Sport.
"I'd have preferred to do the job earlier but, to be promoted at this place in front of these fans, I have to be satisfied".
Tourism officials battling misinformation surrounding Kilauea eruption
The civil defence agency had ordered more residents of the vulnerable Leilani Estates area to leave because of the lava. Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that vigorous lava eruptions continue in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens.
But they defended heroically to end the club's four-year exile from the Premier League. "We didn't do enough to ask them real questions", Villa manager Steve Bruce said.
Fulham, as expected, controlled most of the possession but finding little room to create any meaningful chances while Villa gave the ball away too much while lookin for its lone striker.
"After the last few months where we showed we can play better and the best football in the Championship we can be favourites but everything is history and the past". "We must show ambition but we must know that next season we will probably not win as many games as at this level".
Cairney struck after 23 minutes, clinically slotting the ball home from an inch flawless pass by Ryan Sessegnon at the end of a rare flowing move in a cagey first half.
"I will roll my sleeves up and get stuck into it again next season as long as the people above me see that I'm fit to do it", the former Hull City boss vowed. He was tricked by Grealish and could only clumsily bring the 22 year old down.
Robert Snodgrass, Sam Johnstone and Lewis Grabban are among the loan players amounting to a massive wage bill, while the futures of Jack Grealish, James Chester and Jonathan Kodjia would also be plunged into huge doubt. We just needed a break, but we didn't get one.
