Cardiff City secured automatic promotion to the Premier League despite drawing at home to Reading, thanks to Fulham's defeat at Birmingham.

The Bluebirds dominated their tense encounter but were frustrated by the Royals.

However, Fulham's loss - their first of 2018 in the Championship - brought relief and pure euphoria to the Welsh side.

And Reading joined in the celebrations, with the draw sealing their survival.

The real scenes of jubilation, however, belonged to the home side, with Cardiff's fans streaming on to the pitch to mob their players as soon as the final whistle blew.

Manager Neil Warnock had said winning a record eighth promotion would be his "greatest achievement" - and it is no wonder, considering the Bluebirds were second from bottom and in disarray when he was appointed in October 2016.

Despite working with modest means, the veteran manager signed resourcefully to assemble a group of players in whom he instilled a tireless work ethic and bloody-minded will to win.

The style of play may not always be aesthetically pleasing but, with a robust structure and sheer refusal to relent, this is a Cardiff team whose spirit mirrors that of their manager and supporters.

Tense for both sides
The Bluebirds started the day second in the Championship table, one point ahead of third-placed Fulham. Cardiff only needed to match Fulham's result at Birmingham to secure promotion.

For Reading, meanwhile, there was still the danger of relegation, which raised the stakes for both sides and fed a cacophonous atmosphere inside a sold-out Cardiff City Stadium bathed in sunshine.

The tension was palpable and, although the hosts sought to keep their fate in their own hands with a strident start to the game, the mutual sense of apprehension meant there were few early scoring opportunities.

However, the anxiety soon eased thanks to events elsewhere.

Reading's fans were the first to celebrate, chanting "We are staying up" after discovering both their chief relegation rivals, Barnsley and Burton, were losing.

And those cheers were soon drowned out when news of Birmingham's opening goal against Fulham was met with an almighty roar from the home supporters.

Wild celebrations
It was something of a reprieve for Cardiff, who were dominating possession and territory but unable to carve open their obdurate opponents.

Junior Hoilett curled one effort narrowly wide and then had an appeal for a penalty rejected after he fell under a challenge from Tiago Ilory.

Again, the home nerves jangled but, again, Birmingham calmed them by doubling their lead against Fulham.

The second half followed the same pattern: Cardiff the aggressors, trying but failing to force their way through; their frustration tempered by the scoreline at St Andrew's.

That was to prove enough, with Che Adams' goal for Birmingham sealing Fulham's 3-1 defeat and sparking pandemonium in the Cardiff City Stadium stands and a premature pitch invasion from some supporters.

They took their seats for the closing moments and when the final whistle eventually went, the wild celebrations could begin in earnest as Cardiff toasted their return to the Premier League for the first time since 2014.

卡城煞科悶和雷丁 仍壓富咸返英超

周日英冠煞科戰,雖然次席的卡迪夫城主場僅與雷丁0:0悶和,但因「三哥」富咸作客不敵伯明翰1:3,得以保住聯賽第二,下季隨早已奪冠的狼隊一同直接升上英超。

英冠煞科戰的焦點放在第二位的卡迪夫城與第三位的富咸身上,皆因兩隊賽前只差一分,假如卡城在周日一戰稍有差池,富咸便有機會反超上第二,率先隨狼隊升上英超,而卡城則變相要透過升班附加賽競逐,才能決定可否重返英超。
結果,卡城果真失分,在主場雖狂攻雷丁,但全場15次射門無一命中,與對手互交白卷,但幸好富咸在另一邊廂落敗,作客以1:3不敵伯明翰,令卡城反而在積分榜再添一分至90分,壓倒88分的富咸確立次席,時隔四季後再次返回英超競逐。
至於可出戰升班附加賽資格的第三至第六位排名,也與煞科戰前一樣,富咸準決賽對手會是第六位的打比郡,而另一場附加賽準決賽,則會由第四位的阿士東維拉對陣米杜士堡。四隊將進行兩回合的較量,首回合將於今月11及12日舉行,次回合則是14及15日,勝出一方殺入附加賽決賽再鬥,以決出升班最後一席。
護級方面,賽前尾二的保頓在最後一戰死裡逃生,完場前三分鐘連入兩球,主場以3:2反勝諾定咸森林,踢失分的班士利及伯頓落英乙。
