Brighton Make It To PL

share on:

Brighton can celebrate their promotion to the English Premier League, after Huddersfield failed to beat Derby County.

Brighton won 2-1 earlier in the day, and hoped for Huddersfield not to get a win against Derby. The match ended in a draw.

The draw means Brighton are guaranteed to finish in the top two of the championship and play premier league football next season.

Boss Chris Hughton said: “It’s a wonderful achievement and there’s so many people that I’m absolutely delighted for, certainly the chairman [Tony Bloom]. He’s a local man and has invested an incredible amount of money in this football club.

“I knew we had a group of lads that were capable of doing it, but being capable of doing it and actually doing it are two different things. They’ve been good all season. They’ve bounced back and shown good determination and desire to win as many games as possible.

“Right at this moment, this is the most exciting one [achievement]. I went up with Newcastle as a team that just came down, and although we’d lost players, I had a very strong team.

“This is a club that haven’t been in the Premier League. This was a club that had been in the play-offs two years running before I got here, so it wasn’t a club that was used to being at the bottom end of the division.”
