'I'VE ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF IT'
More now form Neil Warnock at a bouncing Cardiff City Stadium. No one is going home any time soon!
"I’ve had some great promotions and some great squads but
because of the circumstances when I came here, second from bottom and building
it all up this season and off the field as well, I feel really proud with what
we’ve done. I’ve really enjoyed every minute and the chairman has been great
with me as well.
"I can’t put it into words because at my age, I won’t get
many chances... I didn’t think we’d get into the play-offs let alone the Premier
League so I think we should cross one bridge at a time!"
TAN'S THE MAN
Neil Warnock and his players are soaking up the atmosphere - the Bluebirds are back in the big time - here's owner Vincent Tan being hoisted aloft by jubilant fans.
More reaction - and highlights from all the games - coming up.
Derby booked their spot with a 4-1 win over Barnsley to join Fulham, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough.
SKY SPORTS STATTO
WARNOCK'S 'BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT'
Jonathan Oakes has been speaking to Cardiff manager Neil Warnock following the game, and he was full of smiles.
"It’s the biggest achievement in my 38 year career by an absolutely
mile. I’ve got a great bunch of lads and all the fans have turned out, the
owner and everyone.
"It’s a fabulous achievement because no one gave us a
chance, we’ve had lots of kick in the teeth and I’m so proud of them."
Unbelievable drama at the Macron! But Bolton survive at the expense of Burton.
The promotion man...
Jubilant scenes at the Cardiff City Stadium at full-time - although they celebrated for much of the game in fairness - as Cardiff are automatically promoted to the Premier League following the draw.
There is the obligatory pitch invasion with players nestled in the middle of the fans as they all celebrate together.
The game wasn't much to shout about but neither side will care as Reading also survive the drop to Sky Bet League One.
CARDIFF PROMOTED TO PREMIER LEAGUE
A great result for Birmingham, who have saved themselves from relegation after goals from Lukas Jutkiewicz, Harlee Dean and Che Adams.
Tom Cairney netted the reply for Fulham, who will now go into the play-offs after failing to better Cardiff's result. They may feel like that was a chance miss after the Bluebirds drew with Reading.
BARNSLEY RELEGATED TO SKY BET LEAGUE ONE
BOLTON 3-2 N FOREST
It's all over at the Macron Stadium. Bolton are staying up! There are jubilant scenes as the fans run onto the pitch to celebrate with the players!
There has been a mid-game pitch invasion at Cardiff with just seconds to go of the game, with flares on the field and a few corner flags being pulled up.
Neil Warnock and the fans are trying to calm them down... There isn't long to go now guys!
BURTON RELEGATED TO SKY BET LEAGUE ONE
It's all over at Deepdale. Preston finish on a high but it's not enough for them to secure a play-off spot. Meanwhile, it;s heartbreak for Burton, who are relegated to League One.
DERBY SEAL SKY BET CHAMPIONSHIP PLAY-OFF PLACE
It's all over and Derby are heading for the play-offs. It looks like they'll finish sixth though because Middlesbrough are back level at Ipswich.
FIVE added minutes and the Cardiff fans are already celebrating their automatic promotion to the Premier League... It's just minutes away now.
GOAL! PRESTON 2-1 BURTON (Moult, 90+3)
It's a hammer blow for Burton. The visitors commit men forward ina bif toget a winner, and Preston break forward to score through Moult.
GOAL! BIRMINGHAM 3-1 FULHAM (Adams, 88)
The cheers go up at Cardiff and they can breathe a little bit easier now as Birmingham restore their two goal cushion and they are surely staying in the Sky Bet Championship now.
It's a lovely run from Adams down the left-hand side and he hits home on the angle that beats Bettinelli.
GOAL! BOLTON 3-2 N FOREST (Wilbraham, 88)
What scenes at the Macron Stadium. Wilbraham has got the goal which could secure Bolton's Championship status!
BIRMINGHAM 2-1 FULHAM
CLOSE! Fulham are pushing and pushing now, with Christie's cross into the area being directed goalwards by Mitrovic but Stockdale makes a brilliant save to see it behind.
The visitors then have two consecutive corners, but some good goalkeeping from Stockdale again keeps Fulham at bay.
GOAL! BOLTON 2-2 N FOREST (Wheater, 87)
Late drama at the Macron as David Wheater grabs the equaliser! It's not enough as things stand but there's still time for Bolton to grab another...
CONSOLATION FOR NORWICH
Norwich have a late consolation at Hillsborough. Timm Klose scores but Sheffield Wednesday are still cruising at 4-1.
Elsewhere, Lee Gregory has missed a penalty for Millwall but they still lead Aston Villa 1-0.
PRESTON 1-1 BURTON
SAVE! Nervy moments for Burton! Gallagher strikes the ball over the wall but Bywater reads it to make a comfortable save!
GOAL! BIRMINGHAM 2-1 FULHAM (Cairney, 84)
Here we go, this is the late grandstand finish we've been waiting for!
Ayite flashes a great cross into the area that Birmingham fail to deal with, allowing Cairney to rise highest and nod the ball into the back of the net.
If they can find two more goals - and late strikes are their speciality - they can still be automatically promoted with Cardiff currently drawing.
IPSWICH BACK IN FRONT
Martyn Waghorn's penalty has put Ipswich 2-1 up against Middlesbrough, which means Derby are finishing fifth right now...
OFF THE LINE! How have Cardiff not scored there?!
Bennett does superbly well to get to the by-line before cutting the ball back into the area. It looks like it has missed the blue shirts but Zohore is there to shoot - but there is a Reading defender there to hack the ball to safety off the line as Mannone scrambles back.
SUB! A final change for the hosts...
GOAL! BOLTON 1-2 N FOREST (Colback, 79)
A lovely goal from Jack Colback as Nottingham Forest take the lead!
Bolton don't deal with a Lolley cross, allowing Colback to pick it up on the edge of the area and rifle a shot through the area, hitting the back of the net.
GOAL! DERBY 4-1 BARNSLEY (Moncur, 80)
George Moncur picks the ball up on the edge of the area before curling the ball beyond Carson and into the far corner of the net. It;s a consolation goal but the Barnlsey fans respond by singing "we are staying up." If that's to be the case they need a Preston goal...
BOLTON 1-1 N FOREST
SHOT! Josh Vela controls the ball on his chest before volleying narrowly over the crossbar.
GAME ON AT ASHTON GATE
Bristol City have got another back. A lovely Joe Bryan free-kick means that Sheffield United lead just 3-2 now. 15 to go there.
Still goalless at the Cardiff City Stadium but it's a good point for both sides at the moment...
BIRMINGHAM 2-0 FULHAM
It's all Birmingham at the moment, who are probing a lot more than their lofty opponents.
Maghoma delivers a free kick that curls around the wall and forces Bettinelli into a fine, leaping save down to his left.
