Ipswich have been promoted to the Premier League after their 2-0 win over Huddersfield, whose relegation to League One was confirmed.

With Kieran McKenna’s side already holding a three-point lead over third-placed Leeds going into the final game of the season, all they needed was a draw to secure promotion.

Yet a clinical finish from Wes Burns and Omari Hutchinson’s third goal in as many games sparked a revival.

From the manager who turned things around to their star player and unsung hero, Sky Sports duo Simeon Gholam and David Prutton analyze how Leicester won promotion back to the Premier League.

The Tractor Boys have now completed historic back-to-back promotions, following their automatic promotion from Sky Bet League One runners-up to Plymouth last season, and will play in the top flight for the first time since the 2001/2002 season.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, drops to the third tier for the first time since the 2011/2012 season.
