On the final day of the Championship season, Ipswich went into their game against lowly Huddersfield knowing they needed just a point to secure promotion.

Their fans can now look forward to a season in the top tier of English football for the first time since 2002.

It marks the culmination an incredible two seasons for Kieran McKenna’s men, who have now won back-to-back promotions.

After being promoted from League One last season, many wondered how the Suffolk side would fare in the second tier.

And from the very start of this season, they’ve stunned the Championship, racking up 96 points and losing just six games.

The likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool will all be visiting Portman Road next season.

Meanwhile, Leeds will have to settle for crack at the play-offs alongside Southampton, West Brom and Norwich.

Elsewhere on the final day of the season, Birmingham and Huddersfield were relegated to League One.
