Wolverhampton Wolves promotion to the Premier League confirmed

Helder Costa of Wolverhampton Wanderers is tackled by Curtis Davies during the Sky Bet Championship match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County at Molineux

Brentford's Neil Maupay headed home from close range in the fourth minute of injury time to deny Fulham a victory that would have put them a point ahead of Cardiff, who won 2-0 at Norwich.

A late Brentford equaliser confirmed the return of Wolves back to the top flight for the first time in nine years and the celebrations have already been off the charts!

"It's a big moment for us, it's very important", Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo told Sky Sports.

Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple credits Santo, a former Porto and Valencia coach, with spearheading the team's revival since taking charge past year.

Dalrymple said: "What he's brought in has been fantastic". "He came in, he changed the playing style". He's extremely good with the players and the staff.

Cardiff City lead Fulham by a single point but have a game in hand in the race for the second automatic promotion spot, while Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Millwall now make up the playoff positions.

They can all-but do that in front of their own supporters at Molineux on Sunday when they host Birmingham.

The way Wolves have achieved promotion has drawn criticism, however.

The leaders have taken the division by storm this season although their success is not without controversy following their tie-up with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes.

Rival Championship clubs were unhappy about the relationship, with Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani saying Wolves' transfer policy was "not legal and fair".
