Leeds United has been promoted back to Premier League, courtesy of Huddersfield Town’s 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion last evening.
The result leaves Leeds five points clear of second-placed West Brom on Marcelo Bielsa’s side, who now have only one game left of their season.
They are six points above third-placed Brentford with two games left of their campaign.
Therefore, the Baggies can no longer catch Championship leaders Leeds, who now need just one more point from the final two games to be crowned champions, or for Brentford to drop points.
The Whites, who were three times crowned England champions and most recently in 1991-92, are next in action on Sunday afternoon away to Derby County.
This has been the longest joint gap between relegation and promotion of a club in the history of the competition.
Leeds were relegated in 2004, just three years after reaching the Champions League semi-finals.
Financial problems led to the initial relegation of Leeds and continued to plague the club some years later, dropping to League One for three seasons between 2007-08 and 2009-10.
This promotion ends Leeds’ 16-year wait for a return to the Premier League.
