Championship round-up: Ipswich promoted to the Premier League

2024/05/04 14:53

Ipswich Town sealed their incredible promotion to the Premier League on the final day of the Championship season with a comfortable win over now-relegated Huddersfield Town.

If there were any nerves among the Tractor Boys' players they weren't shown on the pitch with Ipswich dominating the game against a team that never looked like they had it in them to fight for survival.

Ipswich opened the scoring with a goal typical of their season, winning the ball high up the pitch before Wes Burns converted.

Then Isaac Hutchinson found it all too early to cut through the Huddersfield defence and add a second early into the second half.

From that point on Ipswich could relax with the only surprise being they didn't add to their tally before the customary pitch invasion at the final whistle.

Even if the Terriers had managed to fight back it would have meant nothing for the promotion race with Leeds United losing at home to Southampton.

Adam Armstrong put the Saints ahead before Joël Piroe instantly fired back for the home side. However, Leeds had no answer for Will Smallbone's effort and will have to settle for third place in the table.

Leeds United will take on sixth-placed Norwich City in their play-off semi-final while Southampton will take on West Bromwich Albion.

The Canaries in fact lost their game away to Birmingham City but due to results elsewhere the Blues still suffered relegation to the third tier for the first time since 1995.

They'll join Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United in League One next season.

As a proud fan of the mighty Ipswich Town, I couldn't be happier with this win! We dominated the game and secured our well-deserved promotion to the Premier League. The players showed no signs of nerves and played with determination, exemplifying our season. Wes Burns and Isaac Hutchinson were exceptional, scoring goals that showcased our team's strength. And to top it off, Leeds United losing just adds to the celebration!
