A Sam Volkes goal enabled Burnley to beat Burnley 1-0 and so clinch a return to the Premier League.

Burnley have become the definition of a yo-yo team and this will be the third time in seven seasons they have been promoted to the top flight. Manager Sean Dyche repeats the promotion.

Their task was made easier after Brighton could only draw 1-1 with Derby earlier in the day. Derby play Middlesbrough on the last day of the season and Burnley can therefore not be overhauled.

Boro' have a superior goal difference to Derby so the rams will need to win at Boro' if they are to join Burnley in the top flight.
