Championship Review: Brighton promoted as Zola calls time on rotten reign

PLAY in next season's Premier League after securing automatic promotion from the Championship.

Robbie Reinelt's equaliser against Hereford on the final day of the 1996-97 season kept them up.

He said: "It had something to do with how the season ended last season, but I think it was more the fact that the players enjoyed being up that end of the table, competing, getting into the play-offs".

2013-14: More playoff heartache followed as, under Oscar Garcia, Brighton were semifinal losers against Derby.

The Championship leaders will definitely go up if Huddersfield fail to win against Derby County in Monday's late kick-off.

With promotion set to earn them around £200m, Bloom says the club will continue to invest, but it will be in moderation.

The former Ireland global was determined to avoid the mistakes of the past this year, and having been a permanent fixture in the top two since October, Brighton have secured promotion to the top tier for the first time since 1983.

"We were this close to going out of the Football League".

This would change to 20 percent under the new rules, meaning less coverage would be available to the poor and underserved. Trump also says that, "the president can not have a conflict of interest " a statement which simply is not true.

Reading went behind to relegated Rotherham, Tom Adeyemi on target, but hit back in the second half for a 2-1 win.

At the beginning of the season fans across the country were all too keen to point out to us how tough this league was.

Hughton, who has won 63 of his 123 games in charge on the south coast, has managed in the top flight with Newcastle and Norwich. The central defensive duo of Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk is perhaps the best outside the Premier League, so they at least have the basis for a solid defence, usually vital for survival in the top flight.

Moreover, to see the Seagulls come up to Selhurst and leave wondering why they can't topple the Eagles is something I very much look forward to.

Brighton possess surprisingly little Premier League experience, despite the average age of their players.

There is no doubt Chris Hughton has learnt an enormous amount along the English roller-coaster ride. The first stage of what he needed to do was get us to stay up [in the Championship].

"This club has got out of relegation trouble before in previous seasons so we have hope - there is all to play for".

"This club has Premier League facilities - the stadium and the training ground are exceptional", the Seagulls boss told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Tuesday morning.
