Newcastle Win Promotion

Promotion was always on the cards after Newcastle cemented their position in the top two in mid-October and their return to the Premier League was confirmed with a 4-1 win over Preston yesterday evening.

However, their chances of winning the title depend almost entirely on what happens in the game between Brighton and Bristol City on Saturday evening, even if Newcastle win at Cardiff on Friday – which is when I’ll be back.
