Ipswich Town promoted to the Premier League



Ipswich Town have been promoted to the Premier League after 22 years out of the top flight.

The Tractor Boys beat Huddersfield 2-0 at Portman Road to secure a second successive promotion, having finished runners-up to Plymouth in League One last season.

Kieran McKenna’s side already had a three-point advantage over third-placed Leeds going into the final game of the season and only needed a draw to secure promotion from the Championship.

Ipswich became the first club since Southampton in 2012 to gain back-to-back promotions from the third tier to the Premier League, while the result sealed Huddersfield’s relegation to League One.

A dominant display saw Ipswich take the lead in the first half from a well-worked move where Conor Chaplin found Wes Burns unmarked in the box and the Welshman fired home to a huge raw from the crowd.

Omari Hutchinson struck again three minutes after the restart, skipping away from a challenge to find the back of the net from the edge of the box.

Thousands of Ipswich had fans gathered outside the ground before kick off with some setting off smoke bombs and flares.
