Newcastle promoted back to Premier League

Newcastle promoted back to Premier League

Newcastle is on its way back to the Premier League after promotion rival Nottingham Forest failed to beat Cardiff on Monday, guaranteeing the Magpies a top two finish in the second tier League Championship.
Third place Forest was held 0-0 at home by Cardiff and, 14 points behind with only four games left, cannot catch leader Newcastle in the standings.
It means that Newcastle's game at home to Sheffield United later Monday will be no more than a celebration for Newcastle fans who were in dismay after last season's relegation from the top flight.
Forest has little chance of catching second place West Bromwich Albion either. West Brom is 11 points ahead after Monday's 1-1 draw at Watford.
