Leicester City promoted to the Premier League

Leicester City have been promoted to the Premier League following a combination of results at the weekend.

Ross Kinnaird

Leicester's 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night was followed by Queens Park Rangers losing 2-1 at Bournemouth and Derby County losing to Middlesbrough 1-0.

Next season will be the Foxes' first since in the top flight since being relegated from the Premier League in the 2003-04 season. Leicester haven't won the league yet, but they are currently nine points clear of Burnley with six games to go until the end of the season.

Leicester can still breach Reading's 106 point record, but they would have to win every game until the end of the season now.

I, on behalf of The Tilehurst End, would like to congratulate Leicester City for their promotion back to the Premier League.

A quick reminder, Reading's match against Leicester at the Madejski Stadium is on Monday, 14th April at 20:07. This match is live on Sky Sports.
