Norwich City promoted to Premier League

Norwich City 2-1 Blackburn Rovers

Norwich City confirmed their promotion to the Premier League with victory over Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road.

The Canaries needed just a point to get over the line and settled any nerves when Marco Stiepermann drilled low into the bottom corner from outside the box.

After Blackburn’s Darragh Lenihan escaped with a yellow for a last-man foul on Teemu Pukki, Norwich doubled their lead through Mario Vrancic‘s sublime 25-yard strike into the top corner.

Lewis Travis soon pulled one back but the hosts comfortably saw out the win, Onel Hernandez’s thumping effort against the bar the closest they came to a third.

Daniel Farke’s side are likely to be joined in the top flight by Sheffield United – whose promotion will be sealed if Leeds United fail to beat Aston Villa on Sunday – with the pair to contest the Championship title on the final day.
