Brighton promoted to the Premier League

eNewsletter

Top of the Championship Brighton were promoted to the Premier League after they beat Wigan and Huddersfield drew at Derby.

A win for Brighton meant that they were all but up with Huddersfield the only side able to knock them out of the automatic places. A win for Brighton meant that Huddersfield were 15 points behind with a vastly inferior goal difference but their draw with Derby meant Brighton were confirmed as promoted.  

The promotion is Brighton's first to the Premier League and the first to the top flight in 34 years.

A win on Friday against Norwich will top of a great season and mean that they will beat Newcastle to the Championship title.
