Championship Side Wolves Promoted To Premier League After Draw Against Fulham

share on:

Wolves have been promoted to the Premier League with four games to spare after Fulham drew at home to Brentford.

Fulham needed to win all four of their remaining matches to stand any chance of catching the Championship leaders.

But Neal Maupay’s injury-time equaliser earned the Bees a 1-1 draw and ensured Wolves will play in the top flight next season for the first time since 2012.

Wanderers, who host Birmingham on Sunday, require a maximum of four points to be crowned champions.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have led the Championship table since 18 November and at one stage had looked on course to challenge the Championship record points tally of 106, set by Reading in 2005-06.

A sequence of poor results in January and February saw that possibility diminish, although they could still reach a maximum of 104 points if they win their remaining four games, starting with Sunday’s West Midlands derby against Birmingham City.

Chinese owners Fosun have spent heavily to help Wolves achieve promotion, although the method of their player recruitment has been questioned by some other Championship clubs.

In March, Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani confirmed he had written a letter to the English Football League to clarify the legality of Wolves’ links with Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes, although the Molineux club do not believe they have broken any rules.
