Wolves secured promotion to the Premier League on Saturday evening as Fulham slipped up against Brentford.

The Cottagers 1-1 draw meant that the Molineux side are back in the top-flight with Cardiff City now in pole position to join them.

Cardiff won 2-0 at Norwich City to jump above the London side with only three games left of the season.

Millwall were held to a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United while Derby County went down to a 3-1 defeat against Burton Albion to leave two spots open in the play-offs.

It’s set to be a fascinating conclusion to the season.

Here’s what you need to know about the run-in.

The table Wolves

Wolves are promoted ahead of their game against Birmingham City today.

The final day encounter against Sunderland is set to see both exchanging divisions with Wolves set to be crowned champions in the next few weeks.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo Cardiff City

Neil Warnock’s men are back up to second.

Cardiff bounced back from a miserable few days to secure a vital three points at Norwich.

They now know that winning all their games would take to the Premier League.

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock Fulham

Fulham’s 2018 has been phenomenal and they are now on a 21-match unbeaten run.

But last night’s slip-up against Brentford could prove costly for their automatic promotion hopes.

Millwall are next up and they probably need to win all three matches to stand a chance of competing with Cardiff.

Villa kept up the pressure on their rivals with victory over Leeds United.

They now need to win their remaining three matches and hope Cardiff and Fulham slip up.

Boro ended their poor run of form against top sides as they beat Bristol City 2-1 at the Riverside Stadium.

That result suggests they have enough to make the play-offs but it won’t be easy.

They will have to maintain that winning touch against their rivals or this season will go to waste.
