Nottingham Forest Promoted To The Premier League After Beating Huddersfield In The Championship Play-Off Final

Nottingham Forest have secured promotion back to the Premier League after beating Huddersfield Town 1-0 in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.

An own goal from Huddersfield defender Levi Colwill was enough to secure victory for Forest, who return to the top flight of English football for the first time since being relegated in the 1998-99 season.

The victory caps a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for Forest, who were bottom of the Championship with just one point from seven matches when Steve Cooper was appointed head coach in September.

It also ends a nine-match winning run for Huddersfield, who must now plan for another season in the second tier.
