Leicester City and Burnley promoted to Premier League
Leicester City have been promoted to the Premier League following a 10-year absence.
Leicester defeated Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 on Friday, and required Queens Park Rangers and Derby not to win their matches on Saturday.
QPR were beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth, while Derby lost 1-0 to Middlesbrough, meaning Leicester will return to the top flight of English football for the first time since 2004 for the 2014-15 campaign.
Goals from Ashley Barnes and Michael Kightly sparked a Turf Moor promotion party as Burnley secured Premier League football for next season with a 2-0 win against Wigan.
The Clarets knew before kick-off that victory would see them bounce back into the top flight, having been outside the elite since their 2010 relegation.
And they were taking no chances, starting the game brightly with Barnes and Kightly handing the hosts a comfortable lead -- the latter with his second goal in as many games.
Wigan improved after the break but the outcome was never in doubt and Burnley's fans were left to celebrate, invading the pitch, as their team guaranteed a top-two finish.
