Wolves fans react to their promotion to the Premier League

Wolves' return to the Premier League after a six-year absence was confirmed on Saturday after Fulham's 1-1 draw with Brentford gave Nuno Espirito Santo's men an unassailable 10-point lead over the Londoners with just three games of the season remaining.

Neves produced one of the moments of the season in midweek with a sensational 30-yard wonder strike to see off Derby County 2-0. Wolves have swept all before them and as well as winning the title they will now aim to reach 100 points.

Rival Championship clubs were unhappy about the relationship, with Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani saying Wolves' transfer policy was "not legal and fair".

Wolves who have occupied top spot in the Championship since October, will host Birmingham City on Sunday.

Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers where Nigeria's Carl Ikeme was plying his trade before being diagnosed with cancer have been promoted to the Premier League.

For a while yesterday it looked as if Wolves would have to wait until today, when they play Birmingham City, to go up when Fulham took a 70th-minute lead against Brentford through Aleksander Mitrovic.
